A Gandy Girl
A Gandy Girl rated it 6 years ago
Whew! Bloody brilliant and mind blowing. An example of the writing we love:His face was angular, vulpine, the eyes bloodshot and all but lost in the folds of dark, wrinkled sockets. Broken capillaries formed a road map of regret across his nose.After further contemplation...I'm pulling out my "get...

Well that was just all around creepy. This was a lot darker than I had anticipated, but I kind of dug it. It was a novella so it was very short, but there was definitely enough there to unnerve you.

A truly disturbing tale of childhood abuses and one woman’s struggle to deal with the present, while confronting her troubled past. A brutal and flawless short work by KPB. 5 Stars! Highly Recommended!

I once believed that a good book had to be a long book. You know, over five hundred pages; up around there. This mindset came from a near-constant diet of King and McCammon, Straub and early Koontz. Then I stumbled upon the likes of Rick Hautala, Scott Nicholson, Jack Ketchum, and, most recently (la...
