Review: ASH AND BONE by Lisa von Biela
It's not too often that I encounter a horror story as intensely character-driven as this one. Author Lisa von Biela peels her characters down to muscle and Bone, even those more secondary ( for example, the waitress; and the near-telepathy of two local police officers). Make no mistake, there is outright horror contained here--in some notably terrifying scenes; yet the real horror exists just where 19th century Polish author Joseph Conrad identified it: in the human heart.
