Book review - Lab Rat - Matt Shaw

Becky and Kevin were happily married. They had no children, their family was made up with their three cats and two dogs in their home in Sellersburg. 

They had a home, a home that Becky loved, which is why it came as such a surprise when Kevin decided that he wanted to apply for another mortgage for another house.

At the price thats its up for sale for, Kevin thinks its a steal. He thinks that they could move in and rent out their second property. Becky is still unsure, even as the bank approve the second mortgage. Especially as she is a little creeped out by some of the remaining items in the house. Some creepy photographs, tatty old hospital beds and a grand piano.

When Kevin manages to persuade her to sleep over in the house he wakes up strapped to a bed, no sign of his wife. Only a Doctor in a filthy lab coat. Another woman is wheeled in on a bed. A woman he recognises as missing from the news. A woman with three children and a fiancé.

There are some real creepy and unsettling moments in this book. The doctor who's deluded search for cures leads to unnecessary experimentation. Look out for the unique cure for stomach bugs and the special face cream
