Synopsis: Twisted twins meet a man at a nightclub who tempts them with the prospect of joining a criminal circle – yet there’s a catch.
Seventeen-year-old twins James and Louise meet enigmatic Nick at Hell nightspot. He's been questioned by police in the hunt for the serial killer terrorising West London and they suspect it is him. But he appeals to their rebellious natures by tempting them with the prospect of joining a secret society, the Devil’s Fan Club, and they are ripe for corruption. So even when they learn that members must commit a crime and theirs is the ultimate one, they are enthralled. Half-believing they’ve met him, they go over to the Devil’s camp. And rather than trying to catch a killer, they cover for one.
Yet while they yearn to join Nick’s club, the task is too dreadful to complete. The killer gets closer. And James fears Louise will be next.
But sometimes the most fertile breeding ground for evil is innocence...
Review: ‘The Devil’s Fan Club’ ensnares your soul from the first word and will keep you pinned in place until the last. The twins’ family is terrifically twisted and the twins are no different, but when it comes time for them to step up to what needs to be done to joining the exclusive society, The Devil’s Fan Club, they may not be as twisted as they outwardly appear. Fraught with psychological terror and haunting descriptions, Mr. Kirkbride has written a novel which will stay with you for quite a while. The characters fit together seamlessly because of, rather than in spite of, their jagged edges. ‘The Devil’s Fan Club’ is not a book to read late at night or with the light off! Creepily dark and dangerous, Mr. Kirkbride has brought to life a disturbingly delicious world and its inhabitants who are more than they seem.
