Book Spotlight: Gated


by Matt Drabble


Michael and Emily are a happy and contented English couple, a writer and a school teacher. Their lives are complete when Emily falls pregnant, however their dreams are shattered one cold winter night by a car accident that robs them of their happiness. 

To overcome their loss they up stick and move to Eden Gardens, a US gated community that offers "Heaven on Earth and Twice as Nice". The people are warm and friendly and welcome them with open arms. The town is a beautiful throwback to a bygone age, where the sun always shines and the sky's always blue. 

As they settle into their new perfect lives, the circle is complete when Emily falls pregnant. The town is perfect, the weather is perfect and their lives are perfect. But are the stares from their neighbours a little too intense, is the town a little too interested in their happy news, and is Eden all that it seems. 

They are about to find out that paradise comes at a cost, and when you sign a lease, you should always check the fine print.

About Matt

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 to write my own novels.

I have always been an avid fan of the Horror/Supernatural genres and find that many great works in this field are automatically dismissed due to their subject matter.

My third novel "Gated" hit the #1 spot on the Amazon UK free Horror chart and when it went back on sale has a high of #4 on the UK Amazon Horror Chart and #2 on the Horror/Thriller chart.
