Michael Marshall's "Bad Things" was a pretty good suspense/thriller. The characters were well-drawn and the story is good in general. I did enjoy the read, but there were a few parts that could have been better.

The supernatural element, while briefly explained to some degree, could have been elaborated on more to make the story really pop; I would have liked to hear more about that than Kyle. And you have to read well into the book to know that there actually is something paranormal going on and not just imaginations running wild. The book also had a rather slow start, telling us more than the story demanded about John Henderson's life as it was at the start of the novel and such (his house caretaking, resturant details, etc). I didn't find the altercation between John and the drug thieves to be very realistic, as it was just too easy for him.
