The Beast of Barcroft - Bill Schweigart

I had  a date with The Beast of Barcroft this week and it got off to a rocky start. The chapters in the beginning felt disjointed and I thought the execution was choppy and awkward. Then as I got further into it, around Chapter 8, the writing improved and the flow got a lot smoother. Once the writing and story came together, I started enjoying it a lot more. It's basically a quick thriller about a community with a terrible neighbor and an even worse animal problem. I thought the horror and gore was mildly portrayed though so even those that are squeamish or scare easily can still enjoy this one.

 

*I received this ARC from NetGalley & Random House Publishing Group-Hydra in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
