PIGS Wade H. Garrett

Published October 9, 2018 by Shadow Girl

This is an extremely sadistic story that should only be read by the seasoned extreme-horror reader.’

5/5 Piggies

Synopsis:  Jake lost his wife and unborn daughter on a West Texas highway when three police officers abused their authority. The pigs thought they had got off scot-free until Jake took justice into his own hands. 

First thing first – I’ve waited way too long to pick up Wade’s work. Truth? I’m the farthest thing from a book snob – we know this, but…  I think that (maybe) I did judge the books by their covers at first ::cringe:: I know! It’s inexcusable! I realized I’d misjudged Wade when I read his short in Matt Shaw’s The Devil’s Guests.  So, I picked up Insane Bastards right when it came out, (the synopsis sucked me right in!), and knew I had been missing out. (Dark & twisted humor gets me every time!) I went ahead and grabbed the complete “A Glimpse into Hell” series instead of picking them up one by one, and I’m glad I did because I couldn’t stop!

PIGS is an extremely satisfying story!

If you’re ever been in a situation involving the cops, you know it’s hard to remain calm, and if you’re being bullied by that superiority complex in a blue suit – your blood just boils in your helpless body. You might think you know what Jake was going through when he was pulled over while rushing his pregnant wife to the ER, but you have no idea! That shit is infuriating! I was getting pissed when I was reading, and The Dark Defender told me to be quiet – twice.
Wade’s writing goes next level sick & twisted, but… all of his torture is very original, and there are damn good stories under all the carnage! Every time I had to stop reading because life came calling I was so frustrated! Learn from my mistake, and don’t hesitate to grab anything of his. They’re all available with KU, too.

ART by Matt Shaw and Michael Bray

Published April 16, 2014 by Shadow Girl

★★★★★

Yes, it took me long enough, I know.
I read it as soon as I got it, but – you know how life gets in the way sometimes. I’m still trying to get my life in order from my little ‘forced’ vacation. Life. Work. Stuff.
You know.

So. Amazon synopsis is this…

Click the cover to be whisked away to AmazonLand!

WARNING: The following book has some scenes which some readers may find distressing. This novel is intended for a mature audience only.

Martin Andrews is in a rut. Tired of the daily grind of life as a police officer and with a heavily pregnant wife, he is disillusioned, desperate to give his unborn child a chance in a world in which he has lost all faith.

Little does Andrews know that amid the petty crimes and muggings, robbery and prostitution, a new threat is looming, one which will push Andrews to the very edges of his sanity.

His nemesis is a man without limits. A man with a grand idea for a great work; a masterpiece which will give him the recognition he craves, no matter the cost.”

From the minds of Matt Shaw (Sick B*stards, Happy Ever After, The Cabin) & Michael Bray (Whisper, Funhouse, MEAT) comes ART. Told from the viewpoint of both killer (Shaw) and Detective (Bray), ART is a journey into the darkest, most twisted part of the human psyche.

Two authors. One ending.

I’ve been reading a lot of extreme horror. Books like SIXTY FIVE STIRRUP IRON ROAD and SERIAL, ones that have multiple authors for one story… As much as I love those – I don’t think I was prepared for ART to be (pardon the pun…) the masterpiece that it is!

Matt is at the top of his game writing as our friendly, neighborhood serial killer – Arthur, (just Art – for pals like us). Michael is penning the role of Officer Martin Andrews, the cop who catches Art’s interest, and becomes involved in his ‘game’, and his quest for notoriety.

✽ ✾ Let’s face it – we all know I’m fangirling on an Annie Wilkes level , but remember… I don’t suger-coat these discussions, or bull-shit you guys in any way ✾ ✽
I couldn’t stop reading this.
I’m not sure how the exact writing process goes for stories like this, (different authors have different quirks 😉 and, I know Matt told us on Facebook, but… blonde moment. Sorry.) – Whether they both have ideas and work together daily, or if they email chapters back & forth as they’re written… However it was done this time – these authors worked together perfectly.
It’s suspenseful, it’s gross, it’s emotional. It’s perfect.
It’s SE7EN, if SE7EN were written by Shaw & Bray.

As an added bonus, there is an excerpt from Matt Shaw’s SICK BASTARDS, and from Michael Bray’s SCRATCHERS. Sick Bastards I’ve read, Scratchers in now on my TBR list.
If you’re wondering about any of Matt’s books, check Cover to Cover. For Michael, I’ve only read MEAT, SOMETHING IN THE DARK, DARK CORNERS, and have Scratchers queued up and ready to go, along with Whisper, and I have the Dark Hall Sampler. I’m diggin’ his stuff, I started reading some on advice from those who have never streared me wrong. One note – I was expecting SOMETHING IN THE DARK to be a little worse, as in depravity, but – I’ve been reading some messed up stuff! Give him a whirl! You won’t be disappointed.
