Item description for Forever Will You Suffer by Gary Frank...
Unsuspecting Rick Summers had simply gone to the cemetery to visit the graves of his mother and sister, killed in a car accident years earlier. He had the cabbie wait for him. But when he got back into the taxi, he didn't have the same driver. His new chauffeur was a re-animated corpse. And he was about to take a drive into hell. The doors to hell open in the house of his ex-lover, Katarina, where he is delivered by his not-so-sweet smelling driver. Rick learns that Katarina is missing and has been recently plagued by a stalker. That's just the beginning of the bad news. When the house changes right before their unbelieving eyes, taking them somewhen and somewhere else, a horrifying mystery begins to unfold. At its heart is unrequited love. And Rick Summers. It seems that several lifetimes ago, Rick, then Thomas, spurned a woman named Abigail. Not a good idea. Because Abigail's great at holding a grudge, some of her best friends are demons, and she's dedicated to keeping a promise she made to Rick long, long ago. "Forever will I remember; forever will you suffer."

Reviews - What do customers think about Forever Will You Suffer?
A breath of fresh air to the horror genre. Jan 6, 2008
What a good read and great book. I truly enjoyed reading this book, it give a breath of fresh air to the horror genre. Gary, has done an excellent job of telling the story of a centuries old promise of "Forever you will suffer."
The book starts out with Rich Summers going to the cemetery to visit his mothers and sisters graves. When he returns to the cab that has been waiting for him. He notices an awful smell. The cab starts driving away and there is thump under the car. Rich looks out the back window to notice the original driver dead in the road. He is dropped off at a old girlfriends house only to find out she is in hiding because of stalker. This is where the roller coaster ride starts and you will not want to put this book down. Who is who and what is what. This is how you will go through in the book. It keeps you wanting to turn the pages to find out what is next. You will never know how this book is going to end until you turn the last page. This kind of writing is what will make Gary Frank a best selling author.
The Suffering Sep 10, 2007
Frank offers a wonderful debut novel here. The storyline is superb and the characters are almost cartoonish in nature. But the pacing is just horrid! Torture, pure torture in trying to get through this novel. I couldn't finish it because I was hoping the girl would come through the page and tear out my throat, and I was sadly depressed when it didn't happen. Just too many words, too much confusion!
Novella Idea Stretched Into A Novel Apr 19, 2007
I was intrigued by the premise of this book and for the first three-quarters was fairly entertained, but the ending fell apart and I quickly realized that this story would have been better suited as a novella. I also have a problem with horror writers writing in the first person, because you can immediately assume that the protagonist won't die... he can't, because he's telling the story. This isn't always the case, of course, but horror tales in the third person are usually more suspenseful. Horror legends like Richard Laymon and Bentley Little can pull it off successfully, but not many others. First person storytelling is also a sign of a first-time writer, as is the case here.
My other criticism is the heavy use of dialogue pushing the story instead of characters' actions, which are always more interesting. I use the phrase "show, don't tell" to let the reader figure out things on their own in order to make the experience more engaging. That being said, I'm curious to read Gary Frank's next work and see the growth of his writing and storytelling skills.
just plain bad Mar 29, 2007
This writer sure does write a lot of words, to say pretty much nothing. Skip this one and read a more established writer.
Thrilling Feb 24, 2007
This is a book that catches the reader from the first page and keeps them in suspense until the end. Rick Summer faces his worst nightmare as soon as he leaves the cemetary from visiting his mom and sister's grave. He gets into a cab and the driver is a corpse. He is brought to ex's house who has been missing for several days. Before he knows it he is sucked into a house that at any moment will change into something from the past and he is forced to see and experience many horrible things. When he is able to leave the house he goes somewhere he thinks would be safe for a little while, but suddenly turns into another nightmare. No matter what Rick tries to do he is forced back into the house of many faces. At first when Rick's characteristics are shown, you think what a low life (harsher words are really thought),but as the story continues you start to feel for this character.
As I read this book I was able to see the images in my head vividly, the author's descriptions were so graphic that I had chills. I would love to see this book on the big screen. I can't wait for Gary Frank's next book.
