One of the best I ever read! By Thriftbooks. com User, June 4, 2000. The book "TAP, TAP" gave me the chills all the way to the last page! I loved the scarey little doll, Dondo. Best of all, the gore scenes are very discriptive (the best kind)!

There's no description for this book yet.

Reviews about Tap, Tap (7):
I was intrigued when this book arrived with a big red sticker on the front cover: "Guaranteed to scare or your money back". That got me attention! I can't say that it actually had me looking over my shoulder, but it is plenty creepy (and weird). One character that got under my skin was the doll Dondo. Mr. Martin describes him well, maybe a little too well. Brrr....

Overall a quick read and interesting. I took off one star for the extended ending. The chapter before ends on a chilling note. Definitely NOT for the kiddies.
I first read this book years ago and remember it scared the bejesus out of me. I occasionally re-read a book that has left a lasting impression on me so it was well worth another go. If you are a Stephen King fan, you will be a fan of David Martin's Tap Tap.
The book was in very poor condition for being a first edition
Just an FYI This book is also published under the title "Love Me to Death". I read Tap, Tap first. This is a very enjoyable story. After, I wanted to read more from this author, David Martin. After doing a search on his name I saw a listing for the book "Love Me to Death" and ordered it. When it arrived, I was sadly surprised to find out I had already read it. I hope this helps others.
Fast paced, quick and easy reading. I did not find it to be as graphic as some of the other reviewers. Oh well, maybe next time. Great ending.
This book is amazing! :) If you like twisted thrillers! It quickly became one of my favorite books!
Roscoe Bird (Martin has some of the greatest character names) is living a nice, peaceful suburban life until his wealthy childhood friend, Peter, shows up on his doorstep. Peter Tummelier was always an odd, dark character, and Roscoe befriended him because he was also an outsider on the exclusive island where they both grew up. Now after several years, Peter shows up again to ask Roscoe and his wife to sail around the world with him. But Peter also has a major revelation to disclose to Roscoe; he's not the same Peter from their childhood. Peter has now developed a unique appetite and needs someone to help be his daytime look-out as he sails from port to port.
Now this all sounds typical enough; in fact, it doesn't sound so much different than hundreds of horror novels weighing down the shelves. BUT Martin adds his wry sense of humor, his dark characters and his incredible writing to create a truly disturbing little novel. His story never fully answers any questions until the very end, and his attention to detail makes the novel even more believable despite the incredible situations presented here. Peter is outlandishly diabolical and dashing, and poor Roscoe is the hapless victim trying to save his good name before Peter totally pulls him into his web. This novel is just incredible! It's so rare that I run across a book that totally captivates me and has me guessing until the very end. Tap, Tap is delightfully wicked and utterly dark; it's a great read and will have you begging for more of Martin's works.
On the cover of my copy of David Martin's "Tap, Tap" is a sticker that promises the novel is "guaranteed to scare or your money back." This is a sucker's bet, and the reader wins nearly every time. "Tap, Tap" is not a particularly scary book, but that's not to say that it's not worth reading; quite to the contrary, it's a wonderful novel.
The story involves Roscoe Bird, a Washington, D.C., businessman who is married and putting his past behind him. Enter Peter Tummelier, Roscoe's childhood friend. Peter now claims to be a vampire and seeks to claim his share of the pair's childhood dream of sailing off into the sunset together (literally). Peter begins to kill Roscoe's enemies in a way calculated to frame Roscoe so that the latter will have no choice but to flee to avoid prosecution. Roscoe's wife, who has a fascination for the sort of very abnormal behavior Peter is exhibiting, finds herself drawn into the seine, as well. Meanwhile, police are indeed falling for Peter's ruse and make it very clear that Roscoe is suspected of murder.
That police would so readily fall for the ploy is problematic, but Martin's writing easily overcomes the plot holes. The writing switches tenses (from past to present and back), voice (from first-person to third-person and back), and locations in a way that could have been very jarring. But Martin is so skilled a writer and the pace is so fast that the end result works--and works well. As I said at the outset, I do not think "Tap, Tap" is scary at all. There are moments of terror, to be sure, but the overall effect is more along the lines of a rollercoaster, a ride on which the reader is carried along rapidly with so many sensations that they almost tend to blur with the passing scenery. Sure, there is some true horror, but there are also moments of great humor and of pathos. And it all seems to blend together remarkably well.
