One Of The Best Feb 17, 2005
I had never read anything by John Maclay before and have had this book sitting in my to be read pile for a few months. I finally picked it up and started reading it and I am blown away. This is a book about real horrors and Maclay is a master of the short story. With in the first two stories I knew I had found a gem. The first story about an old murder by a normal guy had me cringing, the second about the loss of a father brought a tear to my eye and the rest is just as powerful. READ DREADFUL DELINEATIONS YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
