The Girl Next Door by Jack KetchumSuburbia. Shady, tree-lined streets, well-tended lawns and cozy homes. A nice, quiet place to grow up. Unless you are teenage Meg or her crippled sister, Susan.

It is a madness that infects all three of her sons and finally the entire neighborhood. Only one troubled boy stands hesitantly between Meg and Susan and their cruel, torturous deaths. A boy with a very adult decision to make.
The Girl Next Door
While I love Ketchum, I've been pussyfooting around reading "The Girl Next Door" just because of how intense it's reputed to be; but, after reading your review, I think I'm gonna have to go ahead and pick it up. I think you made a solid statement about how Ketchum's books walk the line between crime and horror. I've been thinking a lot about that specific genre divide lately myself and, as best as I can put it, I don't think there is too much of one. Most crime stories have the potential to be and frequently are horrific--just without the potential supernatural workings that horror can manipulate. I can't really think of two more closely-related genres. In any case, excellent review, Will. Thanks, Alejandro.

Published in Nov. Probably Jack Ketchum. Just some guy named Stephen King. Ketchum—who, in person, is amiable and personable enough to have once been a successful literary agent he managed the career of literary icon Henry Miller, among others —has always walked a unique line between mass market author and cult object. Did you ever consider yourself to be part of that group? Not really. Also a lot of garbage.
