Grimm Woods by D. Melhoff
A remote summer camp becomes a lurid crime scene when the bodies of two teenagers are found in a bloody, real-life rendering of a classic Grimm’s fairy tale. Trapped in the wilderness, the remaining counsellors must follow a trail of dark children’s fables in order to outwit a psychopath and save the dwindling survivors before falling prey to their own gruesome endings.
Drawing on the grisly, uncensored details of history’s most famous fairy tales, Grimm Woods is a heart-pounding thriller about a deranged killer who uses traditional children’s stories as tropes in elaborate murders. Set against the backdrop of modern-day Michigan, it’s a journey through the mind of a dangerous zealot and a shocking glimpse into the bedtime stories you thought you knew.
My Take: This book is the the Grimm's fairy tale that you wouldn't want to read to your kids before they go to bed but the ones that the Grimm brothers really wrote. There are no birds doing the house work in this story. There is besides a serial killer plotting his next kill. And remember all those horror films that are set at a summer camp well this one is too only alittle souped up. If you enjoy horror, mystery, thriller or even suspense you may find this book enjoyable. There is course language, sexual references and sex scenes, violence and horror so be aware.
I received a review copy of this book from Partners in Crime in exchange for my honest opinion.
