The Butcher's Boy by Michael Robb Mathias

The thriller The Butcher’s Boy is a perfect mix of horror and mystery. It left me thinking, “I’d love to see this made into a movie”! But then I realized I would be too afraid to actually see it. While I did pinpoint the “bad guy” early on, it didn’t keep me from being on the edge of my seat the entire book. There were still plenty of twists and turns in this great story. I fell in love with Janet and Michael and I adored Lucy. I was also caught by surprise by the emotion the author evoked in me with the story of a mother’s love. For me, this book had it all: Haunted house, Ouija boards, gruesome murders, and me having to sleep with the light on. With that said, the story is a bit graphic at times and might make the easily offended somewhat uncomfortable. I personally thought it was one of the best I’ve read in a while.
