Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Old Flames (2008) Author: Jack Ketchum

This new book by infamous horror author Jack Ketchum actually consists of two novellas, OLD FLAMES and RIGHT TO LIFE.

OLD FLAMES is about a troubled woman named Dora who wants revenge on the life she feels she's been cheated out of. This involves reuniting with her old high school boyfriend, who she hasn't seen in twenty-years. He's happily married, has a son and daughter--and she's determined to make it her family. through a tragic "accident" she causes.

This is one of those stories where the character gets more disturbing as it progresses and you're kind of dreading where it's all going. It's a good, plausible, riviting real-life horror story.

RIGHT TO LIFE, the second novella, is along the lines of Ketchum's THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, only this time it's a forty-year old woman who is kidnapped from outside an abortion clinic by an insane couple who keep her locked in their basement. They want her to have the child so they can raise it as their own. In the meantime, they continually physically and mentally torture her. The story is an interesting psychological profile of all three characters and it ends pretty much they way you think it will.

If you want some harrowing, page-turning reading then pick up this book.
