A haunting psychological thriller in which a man is troubled by odd sounds for which there are no rational explanations.

Journal Entry 4 by wingkeeta1wing at Whitianga, Waikato-Coromandel New Zealand on Monday, December 20, 2021
An enjoyable read. I thought I'd sorted out whodunnit early on in the piece, but it turned out I was only half right and as usual the ending held a couple of surprises.


Paul Davis is hearing some very strange noises in the night. He hears the clickety-click of a manual typewriter--as if someone is vigorously tapping the keys. The eerie sounds began soon after his wife, Charlotte, bought him a classic antique Underwood. But only Paul can hear the noise coming from downstairs; Charlotte doesn't hear anything unusual.
Is Paul losing his mind? Maybe. Or is something really there? Eight months ago, he stumbled upon Connecticut's infamous "Apology Killer"--a psychopath who forced his victims to typewrite personal apologies to him before he cut their throats--disposing of two mutilated bodies on Milford's Post Road. Most shocking of all, the killer was his colleague, someone he thought he knew. Paul's been seeing a therapist for months to recover from the nearly fatal encounter, but his nerves and short-term memory have suffered since the traumatic event.
There's only one way to learn if the noises are real or a figment of his hyper-imagination. One night, Paul rolls a sheet of paper into the machine. The next morning, when he checks the page, there is a chilling message:
"We typed our apologies like he asked but he killed us anyway."
As he desperately searches to find a rational explanation for the note and the noises, Paul slowly begins to consider the unthinkable: The message is authentic, and the women butchered by his colleague are reaching out to him from beyond the grave.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Double twist mystery. Lots of deaths. Perpetuates prejudices about disabled people being dangerous.
Finished it but was dissatisfied.
