Book Review-Signal Failure-David Wailing

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

This short prelude to the book Under scared me to death--my heart was beating double time! If you have ever ridden a subway or other underground train you may never want to get on one again! I'm certainly thinking twice before I ever do!

I'm wondering whether or not I have the guts to read Under--If you like REALLY frightening books-then this one is for you!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

It’s four in the morning and Emily is heading home on a London Underground train. But the Night Tube is running slow tonight – delays caused by a signal failure, as usual.

The train stops again, stuck in a tunnel between Tube stations. And then the lights go off. The motors cut out. Silence from the driver.

All the doors slide open at the same time, exposing the passengers to the tunnel.

To let them out?

Or to let something in?

Signal Failure is a 12,000-word short story set in the London Underground. It is a standalone story and also a prelude to the novel Under.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

I was born in Nineteen Davidey-Dave (all the best people were born that year) and live in London. I write modern fiction, a blend of mystery, thriller and humour.

My most recent novel is Under, a horror/mystery set on the London Underground. Both it and Signal Failure, a prelude short story available for free, are the result of a long-held fascination with the London Underground and its history.

As a native Londoner I have travelled on the Tube thousands of times, but it always feels like inhabiting a slightly different world to the city on the surface. The facts and figures of the Underground are just as fascinating as its mysteries and shadowy corners, and I hope my book does justice to both aspects.

I have five other novels available as Kindle ebooks: Auto, Auto 2, Bang, Duallists and Fake Kate.
