The Bad Seed
From "The Omen" to "The Good Son", American pop culture has produced a legion of "bad seed" spinoffs. For his novel, William March draws on actual case histories to explore a serious question: What happens to ordinary families into whose midst a criminal is born? Featuring a cast of memorable characters, "The Bad Seed" is a solid suspense story that's more chilling, more intelligent, and far more absorbing that its Hollywood namesake.

I didn't actually enjoy this book. I found the book jumped everywhere and was a very boring read.
