* I received a free copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Dark and twisted. These stories will make you look twice at every child you see. Is he/she just a regular kid? Or, is there a monster hidden behind that seemingly innocent face?
Howard Odentz has crafted a book filled with short stories – one for every letter of the alphabet (26 in all), that will stay with you even long after you finish reading this book.
Starting with “A IS FOR ANDY – WHO WATCHES HIS DAD” and ending with ” Z IS FOR ZINA – WHO SUFFERS STARVATION” every single story is truly creepy and extremely disturbing. On a scale of 1 to 10, this book has a creepiness factor of 13.
What I enjoyed the most about this book and the stories it contains is that it reminds me of the writing of Stephen King in his early writing career – when ge wrote such works as Cujo and Carrie.
Haven’t yet heard of Howard Odentz? Neither had I before receiving this book from Netgalley, but I know I will be hearing more and more about him in the near future. He has published two other books prior to LITTLE KILLERS, and I will be adding both of them to my TBR (To Be Read) list immediately.
I believe that with the proper marketing, this book is destined for the Bestseller list. Everything about this book, including the amazingly macabre cover screams “BUY ME” to those who love horror fiction. I know that as soon as I saw the cover of this book I just had to know what it contained and I was not disappointed.
I rate this collection of truly terrifying tales as 6 out of 5 Stars and I recommend it to everyone who likes horror.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Howard Odentz is an author and a playwright. He is a lifelong resident of the gray area between Western Massachusetts and North Central Connecticut.
His love of that region is evident in his writing as he often incorporates the foothills of the Berkshires and the small towns of the Bay and Nutmeg states into his stories.
“LITTLE KILLERS A to Z, a full-blown alphabet of murderers, psychopaths, monsters and second graders, is his third work with Bell Bridge Books.”
“Previous novels include the horrifically humorous DEAD (A LOT) and the thriller BLOODY BLOODY APPLE.”
Howard’s fascination with the psychological aspects of those who are thrown into thrilling or mysterious circumstances is reflected in his writing.
“I like writing about my dark little corner of the world,” he says. “After all, this is New England. There’s more than enough creepiness here to keep me inspired for years to come.”
