Kurzbeschreibung

Who is the Judas Goat?

It had been twenty years since Lenny Cates had seen or heard from his old college flame Sheena. Theirs had been a brief and tumultuous relationship that ended badly, so when Lenny is notified that Sheena has died in a freak accident and has left her entire estate to him, he feels compelled to investigate the last days leading to her untimely death. As Lenny arrives in town to settle her affairs, he begins to dig deeper into Sheena’s life and learns her final days were cast in shadows of loneliness, depression and experiments in black magic. Soon, Lenny will discover that Sheena’s death has awakened something insatiably demonic and old as mankind, something lying in wait and growing stronger in a quiet little town where the horrors of the past never truly die, pain is eternal, and nothing is as it seems.

Look closer…sometimes evil hides in plain sight.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Außergewöhnlich und beeindruckend! 11. April 2012
Von M
Format:Kindle Edition
Lenny ist ein gescheiterter Schauspieler in einer gescheiterten Beziehung. Eines Tages erfährt er, dass Sheena, die auf dem College einmal seine Freundin war, bei einem Unfall ums Leben gekommen ist und ihm ihr Haus vermacht. Verwirrt, weil es 20 Jahre her ist, seit Lenny sie das letzte Mal gesehen hat, reist er zum Haus. Es liegt bei einer kleinen Stadt, und ist irgendwie unheimlich.
Dort wird Lenny von einem Einwohner attackiert, und eine Nachbarin ist seltsam verschlossen, als er sie zu Sheena befragt. Er findet heraus, dass Sheena vor ihrem Tod an etwas gearbeitet hat; anscheinend war sie von Spiegeln, schwarzer Magie und dem Gedächtnis besessen.
War ihr Tod vielleicht gar kein Unfall? Warum verhalten sich die Leute in der Stadt so seltsam? Wer ist dieser Mann, den Lenny mehrmals bemerkt und der wie der Tote aussieht, über den er in einer Zeitung gelesen hat?
Und da ist noch etwas, was auf ihn eindrängt: die Vergangenheit.

Diese Geschichte hat mich wirklich gepackt. Von dem spannenden Plot, über dem man rätselt, und der dichten Atmosphäre, die es schwer macht, das Buch mal beiseitezulegen, einmal abgesehen, haben mich hier noch mehr die Charaktere beeindruckt. Selten habe ich bei einem Buch so mit den Charakteren mitgefühlt wie in diesem Fall. Lenny und Sheena in ihren Leben kamen mir wie Kinder vor, die sich nachts im Wald verirrt haben, nicht wissend, wie sie dorthin gelangt sind und versuchend herauszufinden, was schiefgegangen ist. Sie taten mir wirklich leid, und das liegt an Gifunes Geschicklichkeit: Er erhebt sich nicht über seine Charaktere, urteilt nicht über sie, missbraucht sie nicht für den Plot, nein, er fühlt mit ihnen, und er weiß das dem Leser zu vermitteln.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extraordinary and impressive! 11. April 2012
Von M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Lenny is an abortive actor in an abortive relationship. He comes to know that Sheena, who was his girlfriend in college, died in an accident and bequeathes him her domicile. Puzzled, because the last time he saw her is 20 years ago, he travels to the house. It sits nearby a little town, is remote and somehow creepy.
There, Lenny gets attacked by a local inhabitant, and a neighbor is strangely uncommunicative as he tries to find out about Sheena. He finds out that Sheena was working on something prior to her death - as it looks she was obsessed with mirrors, black magic and memory.
Was her death really an accident? Why do people behave so strange? Who's this person Lenny sees repeatedly, who looks like the dead man he saw in a newspaper?
And there's another thing that crowds around him: the past.

This story really drew me in. Apart from the enthralling plot you will puzzle over and the dense atmosphere that makes it really hard to put the book aside, what even more strucked me here were the characters. I rarely feel for characters in a book the way as in this case. Lenny and Sheena in their lifes seemed to me like children lost in the woods at night, not knowing how they got there and trying to figure out, what went wrong. I really felt pity for them, and that's because of Gifune's craft: he doesn't soar above his characters, he doesn't judge them, he doesn't just use them for the plot, no, he feels for his characters and knows how to communicate this to the reader. That's one aspect of his great writing talent, and it's extraordinary!

This really is a wonderful, sophisticated, perfectly balanced and masterly written story - extraordinary and impressive!
Go read it, I can't imagine someone who would regret it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A journey into the mind of a demented soul.... 28. September 2013
Von RT Twinem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What is it about Greg F Gifune that makes me want to write a review, spread his fame and share his innermost thoughts and feelings with the rest of the world. First can I say if you are a lover of dark fiction and have never heard of Greg (where have you been!) then you are in for a treat, a treat that is not always an easy ride, a treat with no happy ending, and a treat that contains a collection of tormented souls who will never attain nirvana and who face each day full of regret and misunderstanding....welcome to the darkside!

Lenny Gates a failed part time actor, living with an alcoholic girlfriend, is surprised when he receives information that his student love Sheena has died leaving all possessions to him. He sets out to investigate why this should be and is drawn deep into a nightmare of epic proportions. Sheena had discovered something, had unleashed something, never meant for it to happen but was afraid it could not now be stopped. It is the way that Gifune writes, more than the story itself, that makes Judas Goat a memorable journey into the mind of a lost soul full of regret and remorse...
"Fighting with everything he had to keep his mounting terror at bay, Lenny backed into a corner of the room and slowly sank to the floor. He wrapped his arms around himself and stared at the lamp. Its light provided some comfort, but the paranoia and fear were winning. ..Lenny watched the glow for what seemed hours, clinging desperately to whatever bits of control remained. He felt like a helpless child lost at sea and struggling to remain above water. No matter how hard he fought, eventually he'd slip beneath the surface and die. He knew this, yet he continued to struggle. Had it not been quite so hopeless, he might've claimed it valiant. But the doomed had no such luxuries. He told himself he would not sleep could not sleep-but eventually did just that. As the waves overtook him, he swallowed night and spiralled down through liquid darkness to all that waited for him. There, in the horrifying depths of his own torment"

The author treats the reader with respect and lays before him prose that allow him to question his own moralities and beliefs.."But one thing I do know is that we'll never be alive again like we are right now. It'll all be yesterdays and memories before you know it. And we'll both look back and give anything to be young and free again just for a day, an hour. No matter what happens, good or bad, we'll never feel this indestructible again"

I think "Judas Goat" is an inspired name for this book..."It's a trained animal slaughterhouses and farmers use. It leads animals onto trucks or platforms and into pens, that kind of thing. It also leads them to slaughter. It betrays its own kind. You know, as in Judas Iscariot?" When Lenny last saw Sheena he would never commit and he left her when she was most vulnerable, now this inheritance she has bequeathed to him may become his Judas Goat.
So Lenny travels to Trapper Falls to confront his destiny and he is helped along this path by two memorable characters...Officer Meadows and his annoying scratching habit "Lenny was sorry he'd called the police in the first place. Meadows had been annoying enough, but what the hell was this incessant scratching about? Did he have lice?" and lets not forget big mean Gus Garvin the mad wielding Axe Man " At close range the man smelled like he hadn't bathed in eons. It's ok, Lenny told him, fighting an urge to block his nose, you can put the ax down. I'm a friend....Without warning Gus lunged for him and swung the ax!.

So a highly enjoyable read by one of my favourite dark fiction authors who continues to probe the deeper recesses of the human mind and by doing so produce some magnificent storytelling.

Von MommaCat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Greg Gifune is a master at building atmosphere in his stories and Judas Goat - one of his many novellas, is one of his best. Jumping from present to past (with the use of italics) draws the reader into this story of magic like few have. He explains what a Judas Goat is at the beginning of the story and leaves you to wonder who the Judas Goat is here. He doesn't leave much time to wonder about this as he pulls you further along into this tale of a past love gone wrong.

You may finish this like I did feeling like you're waking from a dream, it was so good. If you've never read Greg Gifune before, this is an excellent place to start. If you have, but haven't yet read this one, what are you waiting for?

4.0 von 5 Sternen If you're willed this house just sell it, don't move in! 27. Februar 2013
Von Todd Russell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A girlfriend from the past dies and wills a house with an odd aura to Lenny, a conflicted actor. As Lenny explores more of the house, particularly the covered mirrors, his repressed memories return with a vengeance. In a few places, I wanted to yell at Lenny, "move the *$@! out!"

But he stays, and so do we as readers. Cemented to each page.

Strong storytelling with some gripping scenes, three dimensional characterization, and an ending that will have your heart doing triple-time. This was my third story by Gifune and he sure knows how to draw conflicted characters that keep readers interested and engaged. This one raised some gooseflesh in at least one place and has an unexpected ending. 2,052 Kindle Locations. Recommended.

Judas Goat is a spectacular read....not only one of the authors' finest works, but one of the best Lovecraftian tales I've ever read. The highest recommendation!
