The Butcher's Boy by Michael Robb

We wanted to say that we LOVED this book, and recommend it to anyone who likes a little suspense and horror. Thanks Michael for giving us the opportunity to read it!!

A Suspenseful Paranormal/Chiller

Thirty-one years ago, William H. Buxly aka "Buxly the Butcher" went to trial for killing his entire family. He was found guilty, and sentenced to die for those crimes. Now, Janet Hale, a recently divorced nurse, has purchased the house unaware of the brutal murders that took place there so long ago.

From the moment she, her eleven-year-old son, and his overprotective Rottweiler move in, things start to happen. A strange man is caught lurking in the back yard, and the only neighbor turns out to be a crazy old widow. But not everything is going wrong. One of the men who helped them unload turns out to be a well-built charmer and Janet likes him enough to start dating again, leaving a sitter to watch over her son.

When Michael, and his dog, Lucy-Fur, learn firsthand that their home is haunted by one of the victims of the Butcher's grizzly act, Michael scours the internet and the local library to find out what happened back then. Maggie, the sitter, brings over a Ouija board and they learn the hard way that more than one dark spirit is on the haunt.

Can Lucy-Fur protect her boy from the ghost that wants to possess him? Can Michael fight through the madness and terror to find out what really happened? If he does, maybe the tormented souls can be put to rest so that his mom can keep the house she loves so much. If he fails, he just might become one of them. With the help of Maggie, and a burned out house painter named Oliver, Michael is going to try. The problem is, not everyone is who they seem... even the dead.
