Book Description

The summer he turned seven, Dave Abbott survived a gruesome mountainside car accident that left the rest of his family mangled and dead.

Now, after living twenty-three years with the twisted backwoodsman who pulled him from the wreckage, Dave is carrying out a plan to replace each of his lost loved ones with members of nearby, unsuspecting families. He has prepared, he’s stalked, and now his chance has come to get his family safely out of the mountains once and for all. 

Whether they like it or not.

What they're saying about Dismember:

Dismember’s a fast-paced grindhouse-movie of a book with plenty of unexpected twists and turns and a fresh new crazy for a villain. The late Richard Laymon would have been grinning ear to ear.”
     —Jack Ketchum, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Girl Next Door and The Woman

“With Dismember, Daniel Pyle joins the select group of authors who can provide real chills and genuine surprises. Taut, weird, and intriguing.”
     —Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Dragon Factory and The Wolfman

“The tourniquet-tight plot and constant suspense keeps the pages flying. A solid, suspenseful thriller that enables readers to envision the movie it could become.”
     —Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Dismember 20 May 2011
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been wracking my brain trying to remember if I've ever read something like this before. I think I must have, but nothing comes to mind. "Dismember" was presented as suspense, and it has all the elements of a suspense novel, yet it also has a horror element I wasn't anticipating. This is similar to the way J.A. Konrath mixes a little horror into his police procedurals in the "Jack Daniels" series. I'd have guessed I wouldn't like this combination. Not the first time I've been wrong.

Pyle also strayed from the stereotypical in his characterization, making the villain sympathetic. I wanted him captured before anyone (or anyone else) was hurt. There was no excuse for his actions, yet I couldn't help feeling compassion for him.

Pyle's writing style is entertaining and at times amusing as I wondered, "How did he come up with that line." One of my favorites was describing a mountain road as, "curvier than a Parkinson's patient's question mark." Another time one of the characters was risking an injury to her hand, "not thinking website design might be a little tricky with only a left paw and a mangled claw."

The story is action packed and never bogs down. A typical suspense novel slowly builds tension over the course of the story, peaking near the end. "Dismember" builds to a peak, then backs off and lets the tension build again as it takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Families? 17 Jan. 2011
By momz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WoW, finished this book in one sitting. The premise is unique, what do you do when your family is wiped out? Simple,replace them!
The story evolves around a 7yr old boy who's family is wiped out in a freak car accident.Rescued by a lone backwoodsman who raises him as a son under very twisted circumstances,Dave grows into an adult longing for his "family" and a normal life.

The writing is taut and the plot relentless,the author even makes you "feel" for Dave as he goes about re-structuring his family. All in all an excellent read that keeps you on the edge of your seat.Look forward to reading more from this author soon.

I really enjoyed this novel. It captured my attention right from the start, the different perspectives that the author takes on are well-written. I did kind of want a more definite conclusion, but that is just me
