Publisher's Summary

A dark and dirty horror novel from David Moody, author of Hater and Autumn.

A spate of brutal murders occur in and around the small town of Thussock. The bodies of the dead - savagely mutilated, unspeakably defiled - are piling up with terrifying speed. There are no apparent motives and no obvious connections between the victims, but the killings only began when Scott Griffiths and his family arrived in Thussock....

Critic Reviews

"In his evocation of fear and unease and the speed with which he grips you, he brings to mind old Brit horror writer James Herbert. And that is some recommendation." (London Lite)

"Moody has the power to make the most mundane and ordinary characters interesting and believable, and is reminiscent of Stephen King at his finest." (Shadowlocked)

"Moody is as imaginative as Barker, as compulsory as King, and as addictive as Palahniuk." (Scream: The Horror Magazine)

Good attempt

It was a decent attempt to be a suspenseful horror story, but fell short. Pretty unsettling because of the domestic violence rather than the actual sinister happenings in the town (trying to be vague to avoid spoilers). I didn't hate it, but I wouldn't recommend it, either.

when a Stranger comes to town

I first read this book a few years ago and felt the need to revisit this mini masterpiece by David Moody, it is beautifully read by Ian Fisher who adds a dimension to an already layered story. My only question is when do we get a sequel

james herbert, I don't think so.

this isn't really a horror. the story is painfully obvious, the characters are soooo anoying and corny.
