Have you got any authors whose books you regard as your "treat"?  Stuart MacBride is definitely one of those for me.  Okay so there's a lot of them, but it's not often that a new MacBride novel can sit around here before I pick it up.  So it was with Blind Eye.  I felt like treating myself.  I had 3 treat books to choose from - Blind Eye won :)

Mind you, these aren't cosy, sweetness and light books.   Black humour, violent deaths, gory outcomes, love 'em.

Currently Reading - Sawbones, Stuart MacBride

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

114 Pages.  Set in the USA.  Serial Killer book.  With vigilantes.  A victim who won't go easily.

According to the blurb from the author at the front of the book, ... "the publisher, Barrington Stoke said they'd never had a serial killer book before (as it's not easy to make one work without turning the thing into a doorstop-sized lump of paper) but would I have a go?"

From the Blurb

They call him Sawbones:  a serial killer touring America, kidnapping young women.

The FBI are trying to catch him - but they're getting nowhere.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Stuart MacBride is one of my all time favourite authors.  I love his books, I read his blog.  I'm not so sure about his cabbage problem.  I like my husband's beard better!

Flesh House is the 4th book from him:

"No, you listen to me:  if my six year old son isn't back here in ten minutes I'm going to come round there and rip you a new arsehole, are we clear?"  Ian McLaughlin slapped a hand over the mouthpiece and shouted at his wife to turn that bloody racket down.  Then he went back to the idiot on the other end of the phone:  "Where the hell's Jamie?"
