9780099561842: Family Portrait

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

About the Author:

GRAHAM MASTERTON was born in Edinburgh in 1946. After training as a newspaper reporter, Graham went on to edit the new British men's magazine Mayfair. At the age of 24, Graham was appointed executive editor of both Penthouse and Penthouse Forum magazines. Graham Masterton's debut as a horror author began with the wildly popular The Manitou in 1976. Altogether Graham has written more than a hundred novels ranging from thrillers and horror, to disaster novels and historical sagas, as well as four short story collections. He and his wife Wiescka live in Surrey, England.

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
