This is absolutely the most gruesome, sick, twisted book that I have ever read! It is about a sixteen-year-old girl named Jody who nearly gets slaughtered by a group of killers, the Krulls, while sleeping over at her friend Evelyn's house. Jody manages to escape along with Evelyn's little brother, Andy, while Simon, one of the Krull members, is left behind. Simon's job is to finish off the witnesses or else his girlfriend and his family will be next. Simon becomes obsessed with Jody and can't wait to get to her. I am a big fan of horror novels and this one gave me the chills! It kept my pulse racing, yet I couldn't stop turning the pages, had to find out how it ended. Laymon does not hold back, no lack in details with this one, extremely graphic. If this book were to be made into a movie, I'm not not sure I could stomach watching it, it's that disgusting. If you have a heart condition, do not read this book! It was my first Richard Laymon read, but it definitely won't be the last!
Grabs you from the beginning. But be warned -- quite a graphic - grotesque book.
THIS IS THE BEST BOOK IVE READ IN MONTHS. the timing, the plot, the characters, the feel of the book was something a reader longs for. i read this book in one night. i couldnt stop and wanted more.
Good, but very violent and scary. Not for the faint hearted!
Very easy book to read! i LOVE when books start off with a bang as this one did even better when it keeps that pace throuhout the entire book! Highly reccomemd this one if your a horror fan ...its a typical LAymon book...gore, sex and more gore and sex!
