9780099561842: Family Portrait: Horror

The first body was found in Europe. She had once been a beautiful young girl, but with exquisite skill someone had carefully teased the skin entirely away from her body, leaving nothing but a flayed and bloody carcass. A full examination of her ruined body reveals an horrific truth: She had been skinned alive. The second blood-raw corpse turned up in New England. Followed soon after by another, this time a victim of extreme decomposition, a mess of flesh convulsing with maggots.

When a mysterious, crumbling painting is implicated in the deaths it seems that the investigating team has resorted to madness. But this rotten painting hides a terrifying family secret...

Review:

"Graham Masterton is the living inheritor to the realm of Edgar Allan Poe" ( San Francisco Chronicle)

"Masterton is a crowd-pleaser, filling his pages with sparky, appealing dialogue and visceral grue" ( Time Out)

"Graham Masterton is possibly horror's most consistent provider of chills" ( Master of Chills)

"Though Masterton is capable of conjuring a spooky atmosphere and evoking chills from understated terrors, more often than not he goes for the gut, building to splattery climaxes of physical terror" ( Publishers Weekly)

Book Description:

'One of the few true masters of the horror genre' James Herbert, author of Others.
