There’s something instantly captivating with horror novels which wholeheartedly embrace their quintessential Britishness.  David Watkins is one such author who writes with such a wonderfully British voice.  His Devonshire-set horror novel ‘The Devil’s Inn’ (2017) is a prime example of this.  Predominantly set in a pub (where else?) that’s cut off by bad weather (but of course), we see a classic Devonshire legend brought to life before all hell breaks loose with some honest-to-god Shaun Hutson like explosive action.

Okay so the novel’s far from perfect.  There’re a few elements that need a little attention.  But for a good ole British horror that’s been given a bigass shot of adrenaline, there’s more than enough in its pages to keep any good horror fan entertained.
