Happy Monday all!
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for this very unique horror story.Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Kirsten McKenzie for her disturbing words🖤
Under the Hippocratic Oath, a doctor swears to remember that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.
Doctor Perry assures his elderly patients at the Rose Haven Retirement Home that he can offer warmth, sympathy, and understanding. Doctor Perry is a liar.
Hiding from a traumatic past, Elijah Cone wants nothing to do with the other residents at the Rose Haven, content to sit at his window waiting to die. He’s about to learn that under Doctor Perry death is the easy option…
this book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before! A unique twist on a horror novel… in most ways this was much scarier than any book with ghosts, ghouls, and gore…. the evil that lies in Dr. Perry far surpasses that of any ghost….
Rose Haven nursing home was a very depressing place, just as the tone of much of this book was… but things are even more bleak than they appear with the likes of Dr. Perry and his medications in residence…. this book was in a word disturbing! I felt for the nursing home residents although we never really got to know them all that well(But perhaps that is for the best?) dr. Perry was unlike almost any other villain that I have read of before, he was sinister!
This is not my usual genre, but I would absolutely recommend to fans of all things horror….
