Sawbones

Sawbones, a novel by Stuart Macbride
Book details

What a neat little idea in a neat little book.  Book is probably a touch generous coming in at just over a hundred pages but don’t let that spoil your fun, what you have here is actually a twisted tale, gruesome in the telling and packs a punch other books only hope to imitate.

Sawbones tells the tale of a serial killer travelling across country abducting young blonde girls and hacking their limbs off while they are still alive and then leaving them for dead. His evil knows no boundaries until he kidnaps the daughter of a crime boss who has money and his own men at his disposal to find his daughter and get her back, hopefully in one piece.

 A group of the gangsters men go off in search of the taken girl and they are all tooled up and looking to carry out their boss’ every order.

What we have with Sawbones is a stripped down, no frills novel, with all the paraphernalia stripped out and all that’s left is horror, story and action. The plot is good, the characters while clichéd and underdeveloped still manage to carry the story along really more successfully than they should, all credit to the writers talents here people.

I enjoyed it quite a bit, a short review I know, but in keeping with the length of the book I’m sure you wouldn’t want it any other way folks.

Read it, you won’t be disappointed.
