The Butcher Boy by Michael Robb
Right from the first page I was completely hooked. The Butcher Boy is an amazing piece of horror/suspense. Michael Robb's treatment of the supernatural is so picturesque you feel like you are there in the midst of the action, it makes ones heart beat faster. The gore is blood chilling but Robb's handling of it tasteful, the characters are well formed and the twist totally fantastic. This author knows his craft.
