Review - Only Psychos by Daniel Volpe

Only Psychos Daniel Volpe Psychological Fiction Publication Date: March 11, 2022 Publisher: D & T Publishing Who will survive the storm?

It was a blizzard for the ages. Two, massive snow storms strike back-to-back, causing

chaos in the Hudson Valley.

Anna, and her two children, are without power and the temperature is plummeting. Their

situation seems bleak, but a break in the storm gives them a chance at salvation. Anna flees her

home, hoping to find safety in a local hotel, but what she finds is madness.

Scott is a man on the run. His travel partner, Mary, is the quiet type, but that doesn’t

bother Scott. The severed pinkie he keeps in his pocket is all the distraction he needs.

Jackie and Beau, two young lovers, and budding porn stars, have left their simple lives

for ones of adventure. On their wild trek across the states, a blizzard puts a damper on their

plans, forcing them into an old hotel. An old hotel with a violent and disturbing past.

The snow piles up and more guests continue to arrive…but who will see the morning?

Will the secrets in the basement remain hidden or will the years of torment be unleashed?

There are no normal guests at the Elk Dale Hotel…Only Psychos!


I loved the setup here! Several different characters ended up at the Elk Dale Hotel seeking refuge from a raging snowstorm. They had no idea of the hell that awaited them.

Talk about edge of your seat reading! Volpe nailed everything in this book. The dread just runs off the pages often leaving the reader to feel they are in this mess too. The descriptiveness had me seeing and smelling horrible things. Just when you think things are settling down you are blindsided with more twists. Excellent read that easily earned a spot in my top reads for this year.
