Deeply unpleasant, a sort of 'Last House on the Left' in novel form, and not unlike the work of Jack Ketchum: a touring mother-daughters trio from England runs afoul of a pair of amoral sociopaths and their dim-witted lackey and are subjected to their cruel, perverse games; meanwhile, the victims' frantically searching relative draws ever closing to them, but only after the worst has already occurred.

I found this for a buck and figured i try it out. I was a little disappointed. The writing was okay and the pace of the story dragged. The Dr Burrows parts were boring and too descriptive. The parts with the 3 women were good and interesting. The ending was not how i pictured it, but in the end justice was served. Don't think I'd reccommend or read this again.

This was a very hard-to-forget novel to read. The horrific events of rape, abuse, and molestation which a loving family are forced to endure is so heartrending and atrocious. Such a superb written novel because the terrible violence within was almost too much for me to continue reading. But, I did it.

Picked this up at a used bookstore a while back, and have heard from reliable sources that this is actually by Peter Straub. Pretty obvious considering the name, eh? An earlier mass market edition even featured cover art almost identical to Straub's late 70s-early 80s releases. Anybody have any more info on this?
