Bad Billy by Jimmy Pudge

This is the story of Billy. Born of incest he is truly a monster. Banished to the cellar and chained up like an animal, he is forced to survive by eating small animals. Then his mother dies and he has a chance to escape. Soon the town will not know what has hit them, as Bad Billy goes on a cannibalistic murdering spree. Then he bites off more than he can chew and things begin to change for Billy...............

I love stories like this. Dark and visceral and unapologetic in their gore and blood. We are taken on a whirlwind tour of Billy's life (such as it is), and subsequent death (which was surprisingly poignant). Be warned though, this is not for the faint-hearted. It is very graphic and the blood-letting rarely lets up. It is what I would call a guilty pleasure. You know you shouldn't read it but are drawn to it anyway and helpless to it's call. A great story that will catch you by the back of the neck and not let go until the end.
