The original title of the book: The Nine Deaths of Dr Valentine (Snowbooks Horror Novellas)

"Someone is killing doctors in the style of the murders in Vincent Price movies, leaving the Bristol police baffled. The only man who could possibly be responsible died years ago . . . or did he . . .?"The police in Bristol have been confronted by a series of the most perplexingly elaborate deaths they've ever encountered in all their years of murder enquiries. The only thing which connects them is their seemingly random nature and their sheer outrageousness. As Detective Inspector Longdon and his assistant Sergeant Jenny Newham (with the help of pathologist Dr. Richard Patterson) race against time to find the murderer, they eventually realise that the link which connects the killings is even more bizarre than any of them dared to think...

    A serial killer is on the loose. But not just any serial killer. This one is clearly obsessed with the films of the late great Vincent Price and is putting his obsession to good use by murdering doctors. The Nine Deaths Of Dr Valentine is bloody marvelous fun, capturing the spirit of Dr Phibes and giving it an extra twist.Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed this novel immensely, even given the fact that it's very light on plot. The premise is basically that someone is murdering people in the style of Vincent Price, or at least the characters he plays in various old horror movies. This is all well and good but does rather limit the plot, it being composed in the end of little more than a serious of vignettes of people being killed in gruesome ways. This was the stated aim of the novel though so I can't be too hard on him for that really.I remember nearly all of the movies which made it a lot of fun, but I generally like my books to be a little more involved or maybe, you know, to be a little more than just a serious of interlinked scenes of someone killing someone else. Still, I liked it and it was very short. The irony is that the author's reviews of the movies at the end of the book are at least as enjoyable as the novel itself.Having said all that I would recommend it to anyone who loves the old horror movies and had a pound or so to spare, which is a very good price for any novel, but especially one as entertaining as this even given it's negatives.I was on the verge of giving it 3 stars but it was simply too much fun not to up it to 4. I suppose in the end, if you've seen the movie 'Theatre of Blood' then you'll know exactly what to expect with this offering.So, great fun, but a bit too light on plot for my liking.

    Someone has embarked upon a killing spree around Bristol, killing doctors with spectacular methods which, as the story progresses, it becomes obvious have been gleaned from Vincent Price films. Detective Inspector Longdon is in charge of the case, ably assisted by Sergeant Jenny Newham and pathologist Dr Richard Patterson and once they determine the pattern, it becomes a race against time to stop the body count increasing. As good as this book is - and it's wonderfully written and plotted - I think your enjoyment will ultimately rest on how you feel about chillers from the late 60s and 70s (especially the Vincent Price canon) because John has somehow managed to distil the sense you get watching these films into the written word. This is a joyous book - funny and grisly, urbane and shocking - and as unputdownable as those films are impossible to stop watching halfway through. The murder set pieces are all beautifully described, the plot makes perfect sense, the characterisation is spot on and Bristol makes a great backdrop to the whole thing (with extra points for fine use of the Clifton Suspension Bridge). A brilliant story, told by a writer firing on all cylinders and clearly having a whale of a time, this is highly recommended.
