He gets it all from old Peter O’Toole movies. More like old George Sanders movies, Nora answered, wondering if anyone ever got laid by pretending to despise the person he wanted to seduce. Midway through the tasteless meal, Nora had looked up at the bar and seen Dart wink at her.

The latest disappearance of a woman who leaves a blood-drenched bedroom behind has Nora more embroiled in these killings than she ever wanted to be. And it makes her a new target. My ThoughtsThat’s a really bad attempt at The Basics" up there. Because all that was definitely true. The book is about a woman named Nora who comes face-to-face with a serial killer who makes her life hell. Let me say right off the bat that this is my first Peter Straub book. I'm not sure if this is representative of his work, but I will say that overall, I liked this book.

Hellfire Club proves that Peter Straub knows the craft of writing. While the saying goes Don’t judge a book by its cover, sometimes you can. For instance when I bought Peter Straub’s novel THE HELLFIRE CLUB in 1996. I knew as soon as I saw it this book was going to be a chore to read. And the 463 pages inside it weren’t helping.

I seldom read novels that make me think ...this one is an exception. Not that I avoid them, but in this genre few authors have finesse......Straub winds a fantastic tale of self awareness, fear and survival. I'm going to read it again.

But not in an old hotel.

This is my all-time favourite Peter Straub novel. I've just recently finished reading it for a sixth time, and I absolutely adore it. There's so much to savour. I have so many favourite parts: the history behind "Night Journey" (which is obviously reminiscent of "The Lord of the Rings") - Paddi Mann and The Hellfire Club of the title; Dick Dart's wonderfully twisted campness; Daisy's hysterics after misinterpreting Nora's opinions of her sprawling novel (the Poison family are hilarious); the brief but intense flashbacks to Nora's Vietnam experiences; the story of the tragic poet Katherine Mannheim and Helen Day, the 'Cup Bearer'; and finally the brilliantly brutal finale at Shorelands. I highly recommend this excellent novel. If you've read Straub before, you'll love it. If you've never read him before, this book is the perfect introduction to his world. The novel is so multi-layered, you'll want to read it again and again.

Had a hard time getting into it, but once the story and characters were established, it was easier to follow it.

Solid horror and a good mystery to boot. I really liked the protagonist, and I am always ready for disappointment when a man tries to write a believable woman character. My only criticism is that the title of the novel led me to believe that the actual Hellfire Club in the story would have a larger role, but it is pretty minor. The story doesn't suffer for it though, so I still enjoyed the story immensely.

I had trouble following it in the beginning, but by the end, I wanted it to be longer! A story I won't soon forget. A really good read.

Addictive and I loved almost every minute of it. The twisted turns and resolution left me thinking what happened next.

I have not read any of Peter Straubs books for many years, I just didn't have time. I was amazed at the twists that this story had with turns in the plot that I didn't see coming. It was a page turner.
I usually like this author. But this book was hard to get into, even for me who likes a very good mystery/horror.
