BOOK NEWS: Urban Gothic

Brian Keene's new novel Urban Gothic is in stock on Amazon. I read the first few chapters on there and I can't wait to read the rest. Here's the description on the back of the book:

When their car broke down in a dangerous neighbourhood of the inner city, Kerri and her friends thought they would find shelter in the old dark row house. They thought it was abandoned. They thought they would be safe there until morning. They were wrong on all counts. The residents of the row house live in the cellar and rarely come out in the light of day. They're far worse than anything on the streets outside. And they don't like intruders. Before the sun comes up, Kerri and her friends will fight for their very lives...though death is only part of their nightmare.

I can't wait to read this. It sounds sort of like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or The People Under The Stairs, which would make an interesting book. And all the reviews I've read rave about it and say it's Keene's best so far. We'll see....
