The Dolls By J .C. Martin

The Dolls by J C Martin Will Scare You

In The Dolls by J C Martin, Joyce Parker and her daughter, Taylor, visit an eerie tourist attraction on an island in Mexico where hundreds of decomposing dolls hang from trees. Taylor falls in love with a particularly sinister doll and wants to keep it for her own. The dark history of the doll involving the spirit of a lonely child who drowned rattles the mother. Frightened by the superstitions, rituals, and deaths surrounding the doll, Joyce refuses to buy it for her pleading daughter. Joyce thinks her troubles are over when she leaves the island without the doll and returns home. Unfortunately, things go from bad to worse as the story winds to its spellbinding conclusion.

The Dolls by J C Martin kept me on the edge of my chair for the entirety of the gruesome tale. I must confess I did keep one foot on the floor to facilitate a fast getaway if a malevolent force or a demonic doll surprised me while I was spellbound.

Take my advice and pick up a copy of The Dolls by J. C. Martin:



I have written 171 short stories so far in my quest to exceed Ray Bradbury's 400 short stories. It goes without saying it will be an uphill climb. My web site,, includes sample stories from all ten horror story collections. Since reviews are the life's blood of every author, I would greatly appreciate a review of any of my books on and hold anyone who does in high esteem for all eternity. Stephen King is my favorite horror writer, and I admire what King has accomplished in the horror genre in terms of movies made from his considerable volume of work. My Coffeesmoke channel on You Tube has amassed over 2,600,000 hits, mostly from my "Dead Celebrities" videos. I love movies and had seen over 1,500 by the age of 13 when there was snow on 13 channels after midnight. My favorite horror movies are Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, and the Evil Dead. My favorite movie of all time Is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life with James Stewart. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker , Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Lee Burke, Richard Matheson, Lee Child, Jack Ketchum& Jack Kilborn/Konrath.
