Book Review: The Faceless One

Not since Jeff Gunhus's Night Chill have I been so creeped out by a book!  If you want a good, scary story to read for the Halloween season, grab a copy of The Faceless One.  But if you do, be prepared to have a major case of the heebie-jeebies!  (read: warning - graphic!)

There are many different angles and perspectives in this story, but rest assured that they will all come together somehow.  A man in a nursing home, a police detective, a suburban family - the Big Bad Thing (aka faceless one) is tormenting everyone in some way.  Previously held prisoner in Alaska, it's out and world destruction is at the top of it's to-do list. 

I read through this book in less than a week.  I really had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next.  If you like mystery, sci-fi and gore, read this book.  It's also got a bit of history to it, although fictional.  Mark Onspaugh did a wonderful job of creating an intricate, convincing plot.
