On the Verge of Madness by author George Wilhite is like a perfectly cooked steak...dark on the outside and a little bloody in the middle.

I literally could not put this book down. However, in retrospect I couldn't sleep after reading it either. I loved the authors use of first person. I think that this book is well worth reading.

I have been an aficionado of the horror genre most of my life. The fascination began as a child, staying up late and watching "Creature Features" late at night with my father. I grew up in one of the golden eras of horror films--Hammer Horror was in full swing and as I grew older the iconoclasts came on the scene--Carpenter, Craven and Argento.
