Publisher's Write-Up

Author Gorman Hardy is hot on the trail of another bestseller and if half what's said about Malcasa Point is true, he's bound to make a killing.

Petite and pretty Tyler and sexy Nora visit Malcasa full of expectation.

But Malcasa Point is a place of pain, bestiality and death in The Beast House.

Richard Laymon was an author that I only discovered a few years back, and I've been impressed with every one of his books I've read since (shame he passed away recently).

The story tells the tale of 'The Beast House' (strangely!), a house that's played host to a number of murders in the area, a house that's rumoured to have beasts in it, a house that makes money with guided tours...

There are plenty of gory details, lots of witty dialogue and some sex thrown in for good measure!

It's fairly formulaic as horror novels go, but it's fast paced, and difficult to put down. There's nothing really new here, but there really doesn't have to be, it's a good, solid, horror novel.

This isn't one of Laymon's best books, but it's in no way bad!
