Jack Kilborn is one of my favorite horror writers. I've read a few books by him and he has not disappointed me yet. They are all amazing!

This was a short story that I wished was a full novel because the story line was great.

Colin and Butt and two addicts in Liverpool in the 1960's. Short on cash and looking for a fast fix.
So Butts mentions an old abandoned house a couple of hours away that he thinks would be a quick and easy job to rob.
They go to the house and hear SCREAMING!! Butts gets scared but Colin encourages him and they go inside to see who is making those shrill screams.
What they find is a shock to them, they find something old and shriveled but dangerous. When Butts goes to find a way to eliminate this creature he doesn't come back.

What happens to Butts and Colin afterwards is something I can't say so I won't spoil the surprise.

Sometimes when a book is free I'm kind of skeptical to read it.. I used to read a lot of free books, but lately I've become a bit picky in what I read.
So, I was a bit hesitant to start this book.
The blurb was interesting and I thought I would give it a try.. AND..
I wish I read it sooner!! It's amazing!!
It's my first time by this author and I'm glad I did it! I'll be looking for other books by him.

Here is my review..
Patrick is a reporter whose abusive mother just passed away. He came to the funeral and met his Uncle Warren who has been a better part time parent for him that his mother.
Before leaving to go back home he passed by his mom's house to say goodbye one last time for good! While looking around the house he found a box with some of his old books so he took it with him, while leaving the house he had some heated words with his uncle and they parted in a not so great way.
While back home he checked the contents of the box and found some interesting items.. a note and a gold necklace/pendant.. what was interesting was who wrote the note and to whom it was addressed.
That got him curious and he started digging.

Nathan was a three year old boy living with his parents. One afternoon while his mother stepped out to get the mail he was abducted from his own room, never to be seen again. A local sex offender was convicted and tried for the crime. Open and shut case! But was he really the perpetrator?

When Patrick starts investigating, he gets some serious threats, but from who? Who wants this case not to be opened again and what are they hiding?

This was a roller coaster thriller that I had trouble putting down. So, if you are into great thrillers that will keep you at the edge of your seat check this out. The twists just keep on coming!!
