Jack Kilborn’s “Afraid” Thursday, Nov 4 2010 

A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven’s only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.

I should have posted this before now but you know I never got around to it.
This is a must read, J.A. Konrath aka Jack Kilborn has out done Dean Koontz and Stephen King with “Afraid”. If you are in the mood for a bad ass suspense novel “Afraid” is the book for you. “Afraid” is by far the best novel I have read in years. 5 Stars.

Dean Koontz “Relentless” Thursday, Nov 4 2010 

Bestselling novelist Cullen ‘Cubby’ Greenwich’s book is an across-the-board triumph – except for the vicious, inaccurate remarks by the much-feared, seldom-seen critic, Shearman Waxx, in the nation’s premier newspaper. Cubby knows he should ignore the review. His wife, Penny, a children’s book author and illustrator, knows it. Their brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed ‘Spooky,’ knows it. Even their non-collie, Lassie, seems to know it.
Cubby only wants to get a look at the mysterious recluse whose mere opinion can make or break a career – or a life. But Shearman Waxx isn’t what Cubby expects; and neither is the escalating terror that follows what seemed to be an innocent encounter. For Waxx has ways of dealing with those who cross him that Cubby is only beginning to fathom. Soon the likeable family man finds himself in a desperate struggle with a relentless sociopath. And just when things can’t seem to get any worse, he and those he loves are introduced to the mother of all evil in a character only Dean Koontz could invent: Sherman’s mom.

This is a Great Read I would highly recommand this book, This is one you will not want to put down until you have finished it. The story is good as well as the characters. Dean Koontz has inclueded bits of humor that will make you laugh and smile. I rate this book 5 Stars and second only to Jack Kilborn’s “Afraid”

Jack Kilborn “Serial” Thursday, Nov 4 2010 

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?
# 1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.
# 2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be raving nutcase.
So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2?

When two of the most twisted minds in the world of horror fiction face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides. Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win.

I really enjoyed this short story written by Blake Crouch & JA Konrath, If you are looking from a fast read I would recommand this one. You can find a free version of this ebook at Barnes & Noble http://www.bn.com and other sites online. you can also find the uncut version for $2.99. I read the free version and have been tempted to get the uncut version.
