Book Review/Interview: Kin by Kealan Patrick Burke

I am a contributing editor for The Big Thrill, the monthly enewsletter from The International Thriller Writers and most months I have the pleasure of reading a forthcoming release, interviewing the author and writing a review. Although I write what are probably best described as horror thrillers, I do have a fairly wide taste in what I read so, I thought I should post a link at my blog to these articles to bring exciting new releases and introduce some new and talented authors to you - enjoy!

On a scorching hot summer day in Elkwood, Alabama, Claire Lambert staggers naked, wounded, and half-blind away from the scene of an atrocity. She is the sole survivor of a nightmare that claimed her friends, and even as she prays for rescue, the killers — a family of cannibalistic lunatics — are closing in.

Kealan Patrick Burke was born in Dungarven, Ireland and when this book came up I was eager to review it. Not just because he is a fellow Irishman but also because I have enjoyed his previous work; Carnival of Souls and The Hides. It was a happy co-incidence that I was in Dungarven for the weekend visiting friends when I began this novel so it seemed somewhat fated that I would get this book to review.
