This is my first novel I read in english and I guess I understand the complete novel. But I should stop talking about me, let's talk about this novel by Christopher Alan Broadstone who is an independent writer and also a filmmaker from Los Angeles, California. Puzzleman is his first novel and I guess it's a little bit strange for me, first thing is the language and the other one is the same like in most of the books, especially those books (horror, thriller...), are enigmatic, and the enigmas and mysteries are ultimately resolved during the course of reading, and in the end you learn what and why things happen in the story.
The situation of finding this novel and the author's website was a great contigency and the site itself caused a sensation to me and I start reading all the things on the page, this synopsis of the book was one of the things I read and also you should.
About the book is, for sure, one of the best I have read since years, it's really hard stuff sometimes and it's always exciting.
A young sculptress despondently searching for understanding after the tragic death of her infant son...
A professor of history and a beautiful French vintner, still longing for the love they shared during World War II...
A legless man seeking retribution and escape from a horror worse than death...
A retired detective itching to get back in the game...
Disparate lives, yet each meticulously woven together over time to play a special part in the Puzzlemans twisted vision of eternal life.
Into the black Cathedral Fleur du Sang and into the pipes they must go into a terrifying world of grumemonsters, where the inaccuracies of accepted history and the gruesome future of mankind are laid bare. For Amanda Zimmerman, Professor John Rainbow, Jeannette Orfèvre, the legless man, and Detective Ben Henfry the Puzzleman is a personal demon awakened into a living nightmare, and its up to them alone to wage their fight for sanity and salvation a fight that swells into a harrowing escape spanning two continents, and the supernatural perversion of time and dimension. Welcome to the pipeworld.
Welcome to truth and eternity.
Welcome to the world of the Puzzleman.
