Trapped. Missing. Cursed. Fourteen-year-old Becca Richards and her stepbrother have fallen to the bottom of an ancient well. Their parents are away; they won't be missed for days. The predatory man who had been stalking Becca now switches his attentions to her best friend. Two women who know where Becca is trapped are desperate that she should never escape. Over the course of a week, family, friends and strangers are drawn together by a terrible shared fate – from which not all will escape. 'The Well' is a darkly gripping tale about how we respond to the hand fate has dealt us - and the consequences of our choices. The Well deftly intertwines a story of supernatural horror with a tale of one of the greatest fears of modern life. As the book progresses, the two stories become one - driving relentlessly towards a single, thrilling finale. The Well is a fast-paced, riveting story that will grip you - and keep you guessing - until the very end.

May 25, 2011It is a rare thing these days to find a book that grabs you from the start and then won't let go until the final act, yet Peter Labrow's debut "The Well" did just that. I found it to be an extremely well paced book gaining momentum as you turn each page with lots of twists and turns, building up to an exciting climax. I found the charcters to be very "human", with their own flaws but good sides too, apart from the villain of course who has a heart as black as the bottom of a well! A very vivid book and a great story. I will definately be looking out for Peter's next offering.
Mar 11, 2011What a superb book from start to finish. I usually take a few days to read any book but this I read in two sittings. I won't be passing this on to anyone else because I will read it over again. A well written book by an author who has obviously done his research. I will be watching for more books by Peter Labrow.
Feb 17, 2011So right about not being able to put this book down, I just had to stay up 'till 3am to get to the thrilling conclusion of this absorbing tale. Utterly modern, brilliantly written,totally gripping. Can't wait for this talented author's next book!
Feb 13, 2011Stayed up until 2 am last night to finish this rollercoaster of a book, which grips you from the very first page and just doesn't let go. As soon as Becca and her stepbrother fall into The Well you're tipped over the edge and hurtle on through twists and turns which literally made me jump out of my skin. The characters are so well drawn - some engage, some repulse, and they linger in your thoughts until the next time you pick up the story. Most gripping book I've read in years.
Feb 11, 2011This is a brilliant book - buy it! It's pacy, edge-of-the-seat, keep-reading-till-morning gripping stuff. You won't want to put it down, honestly. The characters are well-formed, the plot's chock full of jeopardy - it's everything you want from a spooky thriller. Peter Labrow isn't a well-known author...yet. But based on this book he will be soon. Buy it. BUY IT!
