An online video of a girl clawing at the ceiling of her own grave could be the worst thing FBI forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley has ever seen. Perhaps even more disturbing is the implication of the video’s title: “Experiment Number One.” Zoe and her partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray, work as fast as they can to find the monster behind the shocking video, but soon another one shows up online, and another girl turns up dead.

Still reeling from a brutal dismemberment, detective Kline is forcibly recruited to solve a murder inside a religious cult that takes literally the New Testament idea that you should cut off your hand if it offends you. Armed only with his gun, his wits, and a gift for self-preservation, Kline must navigate a gauntlet of lies, threats, and misinformation. All too soon he discovers that the stakes are higher than he thought and that his survival depends on an act of sheer will.

These waking dreams wreak havoc for a guy who depends on real-life clues to make his living. Clients haven't exactly been beating down the door when Mark meets Jennifer Times - daughter of the powerful local D.A. and a contestant on American Star - who walks into his office with an outlandish story about a man who stole her fingers.

I was hesitant to try this, especially after I did not like disappearance at devils rock, but I actually really liked this book. The narcolepsy part is not a gimmick, meaning I found the rest of book better than any part that was strictly about narcolepsy.

I did love the narcolepsy parts as well, I would much rather read the ‘gimmick’ of a narcoleptic PI who hates his life and lives with his mother, then the normal cop or PI who is 'down-on-his-luck', 'substance-abusing' and 'better-then-the-FBI' . Who then manages to pull it all together just long enough to solve the crime and get the girl.

Andrew Holland is a best-selling horror writer. While none of Andy's neighbors has any interest in reading his macabre books, they're pleased to have a celebrity author living among them. Then, one morning, Andy finds the body of a child several hundred feet from his front door. A little girl who has been raped and murdered. And everything changes on Poinsettia Lane. Andy's neighbors turn on him. Their animosity is subtle at first: a dirty look from across the street, a friendly wave that is not reciprocated.

I usually do not like books that are labeled as ‘you need to suspend your belief and just go with it to enjoy this book’, but this book was pretty darn good. At the beginning of the ending I almost put it down because it was so unbelievable, but the book was so good up until then that I stuck with it, and I am glad I did because the ending of the ending was worth it.

I finished in one day which says it all, but for this being ‘one of the best books ever’ is a little over-stated. Those reviewers are a little high on their emotions of righteousness and their beliefs that the media/rumor part of the story not only could happen in real life but has happened and in a way is currently happening with our current day society and they (the reviewers) know it but society needs wake up. Please, this story line has been repeated and repeated for generations, but again this author is so good he makes it one the better books in this genre. (plus all the reviewers who are ‘writers’ feel like this main character is them).

Who better to repel a body-snatching alien invasion than a group of teenage horror nerds? Billy and Tom are best friends, but each knows that at the end of the school year they'll be moving in different directions. But why not go out with a bang and throw one last video night? They can invite some girls over, order a pizza, then maybe try and fight the alien infection that's taken hold over their suburban town. It's The Breakfast Club meets The Night of the Creeps in this slime-drenched '80s horror romp.

Before reading this book: I see a movement outside my window and I think Squirrel.
After reading this book: I see a movement outside my window and I think Monster.

People are always disappointed when horror books cannot scare them as much as a real life experience. But when a book turns your first thought from a squirrel to a Monster, then to me that is a scary f-ing book

*note there are no Squirrels in this book, I just have a lot of Squirrels running past my windows which is scary
