Another excellent novel from the prolific Guy N. Smith. This one's sort of a variation on the basic CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON scenario, but far more gruesome. When a trio of explorers in search of King John's treasure stumbles upon a dormant reptilian creature of unknown origin, they think they've made the scientific discovery of a lifetime. Little do they realize the beast's true nature, and soon the eponymous "slime beast" awakens and is terrorizing the small village nestled up against the salty marsh. Smith's writing, as always, is economical and taut and the suspenseful story moves at a breakneck pace to its extremely satisfying conclusion. A fast, exciting read that all fans of monster mayhem should enjoy.
Back in the 1970's & 1980's I had a stack of Guy N. Smith's books now I'm starting to recapture those days. This is a typical Guy N. Smith tale of romance, monsters, sex, local yokels and more sex as a small archaeological party searching the Wash for a lost treasure uncover a creature that soon spreads fear along the East coast. After a low level killing spree the army are called in At 144 pages it's the perfect size to be read in a single day. There's not much room for major character development but Smith still manages to introduce around a dozen characters, some of whom come to a pretty grisly end. It's not Smith's best book but it's still got everything I want in a quick horror read and I loved it.
