My expectations were so high coming into this one, I was almost afraid to read it. I’m glad I did, and I wasn’t disappointed. There is a palpable sense of dread and building tension, in Animosity, that grabs you around the throat until it is hard to breathe.
Andy writes horror, and now, he gets to live one.
Andy has neighbors, and now, he gets to kill some.
An idyllic town goes sideways, after the death of a young girl, in a frenzy of mob mentality “fueled by their idiotic prejudices and misguided perceptions” they target the local horror writer and peg him for the crimes.
As his neighbors turn against him, Andy must find a way to survive the growing unease and violence on his once peaceful little street.
A solid 4.5 Stars rounded up to 5 based on the strength and ease of the writing. Another winner from James Newman. Highly Recommended.
