4.0 out of 5 stars LIKE FATHER...LIKE SON...? 9 Feb 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bentley Little is one of the most unique horror story writers around. Though this is not his best effort, it is still a worthy effort. No one makes the banal seem more horrific than this author.

When Steve Nye is contacted by his mother and says that his father tried to kill her and is confined to a psychiatric ward, Steve pays him a visit. Although he is apprised by his father's doctor that his dad has dementia, Steve begins to believe that his father harbors a guilty secret, by virtue of a statement his father makes to him. He reads something into it that renders Steve speechless, causing him to undertake a very personal investigation.

Where that investigation takes Steve and how he views his girlfriend subsequently, is the stuff of which this book is made. Juxtaposing the banal and commonplace alongside murder in a matter of fact way that is chilling is the strength of this book. This book is an intriguing foray into the author's ability to turn the commonplace into something sinister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better it seems... 5 Nov 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read Bentley Little for years I find his books fall into two categories. Insane, makes no sense, supernatural books (The House, The Town, The Revelation, Dispatch) & real world, conspiracy weirdness books (The Store, The Association, The Academy, The Ignored). I much prefer the latter types of book. But "His Fathers Son" does not fit in either category (and not just because it doesn't have "The" in the title). Which is a very pleasant surprise.

Not wanting to give away any details of the story all I will say is that the structure is interesting in that you get some bonus material in the book.

Overall its a great horror novel that kept me intrigued and actually had a pretty good ending, which is pretty rare in a Bentley Little book.
