The small desert town of Granton is a typical slow boiling pot of unfulfilled hopes and dreams. Every hard working day is much like any other here where little ever changes. Sheriff Cassie Wheeler runs a tight ship in the tradition of her late father. There is little serious crime to trouble her department, save for the local miners’ occasional rowdiness after payday. But Granton has its share of secrets hiding behind twitching curtains. Small town folks often have the biggest of ambitions.
Now the long dusty road into town has brought with it a stranger. A man of elegance calling himself Gilbert Grange has arrived. He brings with him a bag full of dreams and a silver tongue of promise. He can give you whatever you desire, all you have to do is sign on the dotted line.
The residents of Granton are about to discover that dreams can come at a terrible price, and you should always be careful what you wish for.
The Traveling Man was an amazing read. I would easily give it five out of five stars. I'm usually picky about my thrillers, but The Traveling Man was probably one of the best horror books I have ever read. One of the main characters is a sheriff named Cassie Wheeler who is a very determined and strong woman. I loved how she never gave up no matter what happened or came her way. I am excited to start reading Matt Drabble's other books. If you don't mind a good scare, this story is for you!
Born in Bath, England in 1974, a self-professed "funny onion", equal parts sport loving jock and comic book geek. From an early age reading so many works of varied authors, I took the somewhat foolhardy decision to attempt my own novel.
I now have eight novels available, "Asylum - 13 Tales of Terror" “,Gated", "Rapture Falls", "Fangsters" and my latest novels "Abra-Cadaver" & a new horror anthology "After Darkness Falls" Volumes One and Two. I have also just published a sequel to "Gated" called "Gated II: Ravenhill Academy"
“Gated” was a UK Horror Chart #4 best seller.
“Asylum – 13 Tales of Terror” was a Horror/Anthology Chart #1 for over a year and voted #5 on The Horror Novel Reviews Top 10 Books of 2013.
“Abra-Cadaver” recently won an Indie Book of the Day award.
I have recently been signed by Taylor Street Books in San Francisco who will be producing my novel "The Montague Portrait" and I am currently writing "Double Visions"
