Rags and Bones by Ian Woodhead

This is the story of Cerchester, a town with some very dark secrets. Dave and Phil start off on what should be a great night out. Within hours all hell is unleashed and the townsfolk turn on all non locals. This is a town teetering on the edge of Armageddon and it wont take much to push it over the edge. Nor will it go down quietly....

This was tense and very very gritty. It pulled no punches. Cerchester is most certainly NOT a place to visit! Most of the characters were flawed in some way or another and very difficult to like but their characterization was well rounded. The pace was spot on and never flagged, keeping me up late to see what happened next! This was something of a different offering from Ian and it worked well, I recommend this for an unrelenting horrorfest, just don't ask me to move to Cerchester!
