Item description for Savages And Saints by Anita Bond...
Its the 1950s in the north of England. The Gilmores seem like any hardworking family just striving to get on after the war years. But Calvin, the cousin who joins them after the violent death of his own family, is hiding his true character under a veneer of likeable charm and startling physical beauty. And no one is ever suspicious when, one by one, those standing in Calvins way, meet an untimely death. The cousins, David and Calvin, plus the lovely Elizabeth, move to the Costa Blanca in Spain and become successful and rich. But Calvin cannot control his natural tendencies to manipulate life by ridding the world of those who simply annoy him. Oblivious to the weird goings-on, David never once loses his idol-worship of his older cousin and in no way suspects him of being responsible for the evil erupting around them - until it is too late...

Raw! Apr 4, 2008
An unputdownable read.
The highly respected, international journalist Anita Bond's, first foray into full length fiction and a damn fine effort at that. Bond has a unique and wonderful style in throwing her characters into a love or hate category that the reader can relate to. One can simply detest them or empathise with them... black and white, no grey areas. And Bond does not hold back on the graphic details and the violence in this, her first published novel. Bond's book is raw; it is disturbing at times but never boring. And the book is finally balanced to tease the reader into believing another book is just round the corner. I sincerely hope so. Role on the sequel to Savages and Saints, a quite breathtaking, passionate, unforgetable debut.
