The novel so nasty I reviewed it twice! Forget the gore and the blood, read this for its characters, pace, and adrenaline. Read it. And sweat, smile, laugh, cringe, or wince. But just read it. A REQUIRED title for horror reader initiation.
I love this book, but beware it's graphic and bloody trail. Ketchum's take on the Sawney Beane story is fast-paced and sweat-inducing yet doesn't pander. His first novel and extremely tense. Highly recommended.
