Format: Paperback
In my humble opinion this is the best Laymon book ever. Kicking off in Cthullu-type gaslight London, it follows the young hero's entanglement with Jack the Ripper, taking a roller-coaster ride across the ocean to the Wild West.
Excellent characterisation set this book apart from other Richard Laymon titles. Always a master of gore and shock-horror, this book proves that Laymon is also a well-crafted stroyteller and a strong writer beyond the pulp element.
High recommended to any Laymon fan... this book will leave your breathless. To generic horror fans I say this; "Read this one and you'll be a Laymon fan too."

Format: Paperback
Great Stuff!! A non-supernatural horror/thriller, following a young lad's pursuit of Jack the Ripper from 19th Century Whitechapel, London over the Atlantic Ocean, across America to Tombstone, Arizona.

Very accessible right from the start, the author gives us plenty of action with delightful, unexpected twists and turns throughout. There is an abundance of believable characters, without going too over the top with superfluous detail/past history. A bit saucy in places without becoming too explicit, and violent in others without being too gratuitous; first class ingredients for a ripping yarn blended expertly. A great ending too.

A large book that will totally absorb you - take it on holiday, you WILL finish it!

In some ways a slight departure for Laymon, but because of this, I found this to be his best book yet. From London to the wild west the characters are intensive and (almost) believable and the plot is excellent.
As ever, Laymon adds a healthy dose of gore and sex and puts it together in a superbly entertaining package. Highly recommended for lovers of the genre.

Format: Paperback
I've read thirty Laymon books and "Savage" is certainly among the very best. Far from being "trash" or "aimed at teenagers" (now where did THAT come from???), it is an incredibly well written, exciting horror thriller full of suspense.
Buy this book with confidence, it will not disappoint you.

I Loved this book. Although it may not be one of his best, it combines the two things I'm most interested in - Richard Laymon and Jack The Ripper! It provides a nice theory as to why the killings stopped so suddenly! I won't ruin it for any of you who haven't read it - I'd just advise you to! This comes a very close second to Island and The Midnight Tour for me.

What can one say huh? Dean Koontz sums matters up to a tee. "No one writes like Laymon..." I've read all of Richards books aside from "No Sanctuary" and this pips "Blood Games" my previous favourite. For the 4 evenings it took me to complete this novel, I MYSELF, was Trevor. On the fourth night, I loved..... well not to give away the story..... I just loved being Trevor. Richard has the ability to grab you by the scruff of the neck and drag you into his story, his world....

Hmm.. This one sits on the fence with me. I am a huge Laymon fan and have read many of his books.
If you are after a true Laymon book, avoid this one!
It starts off well and I had hope, but unfortunately it gets a little tedious after a while. Perhaps I have 'expectations' of Laymon now and expected something different. If it was by a different author I may have enjoyed the book more.

This is by far the best Laymon book I have ever read. Infact up until reading this I always thought of Laymon as a bit of a "trashy horror" writer. I'm glad to say this book proved me wrong.
It's pure addiction right from the start, has some true heart breaking moments and the twists get bigger at every turn.
Fantastic.
