the following are extracts from letters received from readers who
enjoyed the book:
for the good read . . . I enjoyed Ek Chuah."
was exactly my kind of book."
(spoiler omitted) My god James,
that's the best damn analogy I've ever read! Actually, EK CHUAH
was packed with lots of great stuff, the way-colorful analogies
being just one. Relentless pacing, GRUESOME imagery and intrigue
were just a few others. Not for a long time did I
nearly miss my subway stop because I was so engrossed (emphasis on
"gross"!) in reading, but your book brought me to that
point. Good job, man!"

"I think you did well for a 1st book
and your writing style approached that of Dean Koonz in may places
- that is a real complement as I think he is the finest writer of
horror thriller writing today. . . . I liked the book and it
was a "page turner". Congrats!"

"I finished reading your book, "EK
CHUAH," last night. I enjoyed it enough to complete it
in about a week while working a full-time job, so that should tell
you something. The police shootout and forensics scenes seemed
expertly done and as sharp as any I've read, and I really got a
"kick" out of Samantha, Dianne and Molly. As I read the
novel it materialized into sort of this Robert Rodriguez-esque
lanscape/vision yet with a uniqueness entirely all its own. As a
Floyd-head, I had to chuckle during the assault on the stereo/CD
player emitting "Breathe." Nice job and I look forward
to your next."
"EK CHUAH is one hell of a book -- a
strange and evocative erotic supernatural thriller, twisted and
shocking in all the best ways. Cain's writing is as tight as
a fist, twisting around a supple throat as he turns up the heat.
The characters in this book go to places that will surprise and
horrify you. A great down-and-dirty read!"
