Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Lynnwood The plot line is new and exciting, I won't say anymore about that because I don't want to give it away! But I know I was surprised more than once at what was happening. If you are looking for a good book, definitely pick up this one. - Alison Mudge, Librarian, USA An exciting, on the edge of your seat gothic that will have readers begging for more. - Rosemary Smith, Librarian and Cayocosta Book Reviews A dark and disturbing horror story set in a picturesque village. Full of rich description, it depicts the horrifying, ravenous secret lurking beneath the surface of the village. I would recommend this to fans of classic English horror as well as fans of Stephen King. - Lucy O'Connor, Waterstones A quintessentially British folk horror chiller, with an escalating power of dread that is rendered deftly. A new voice in British horror, that you'll want to read, has entered the field. - Adam Nevill, Author of Apartment 16 and The Ritual ... A dark journey not only of the mind, but of the soul. This beautifully crafted tale of the horror that lurks in a picturesque English village is hopefully the first of many to come from this brilliant young author. Mr. Brown's extraordinary talent is evident as he paints a virtual feast for the reader with eloquently chosen prose in this powerfully engaging novel. - Nina D'Arcangela Praise for A Taste for Blood Johnny Hawke breathes new life into the traditional British mystery. He's a hero with a heart. - Val McDermid This is a delightful read because you are not quite sure what will happen and you are hooked enough to keep on reading. Enjoyable. - J Robert Ewbank, author A well-crafted thriller that had me gripped from the first chapter. A Taste for Blood far exceeded expectations with its carefully crafted plotting and characterization. So good were these that it encouraged me to read the novel a second time. - Amazon review I wholeheartedly recommend David Stuart Davies to those who enjoy a good read. - Amazon review Praise for Ellipsis It's a tale that will keep them wondering, gasping, thinking, smiling, grimacing, rereading. What more can a reader ask for? - Spinetingler Magazine I wouldn't have stopped reading if my house was on fire! - Cas Peace, author of 'For the Love of Daisy', North Hampshire Tight, evocative gut-punches tempered by the desperate details of everyday life. - Shawn Kupfer, author of White Male, 34 This is the type of story that keeps a reader up half the night. - Maureen Vincent-Northam, author of 'The Writer's ABC Checklist' and 'The Greatest Genealogy Tips in the World', Hereford
