Horror-Web Calls Wide Game “Big-Time Scary!”

Horror-Web just posted its review of my debut novel, The Wide Game.

4.5 out of 5 StarsThe Wide Game got me right in the fear center of my lizard brain.  Michael West’s story telling style takes me back to the glory days when horror spoke in the voice of the boy next door and had me looking over my shoulder when I went out in the dark.  His low-key, unobtrusive style lulls you into a comfort zone and then he zaps you with big-time scary.”

Michael West “a writer to watch!”

 Sheri Jenkins White has posted a glowing review of my debut novel, The Wide Game, over at Xomba Horror. 

Michael West has written a wonderful tale of suspense, horror and dread…filled with twists, turns and surprises, right up until the end.  One of the twists took me by complete surprise, and sent a chill down my back.  I highly recommend The Wide Game, and peg Michael West as a writer to watch.”
