Brian Keene punches readers in the gut, repeatedly. Really, the guy writes scenes that will turn the strongest stomachs and describes horrors that may not fade once the book is closed. Those who've never read a novel by Keene have been warned. He tries, and mostly succeeds, to scare the living daylights out of you. With his latest, Urban Gothic, he again pulls no punches. This book is full of gore and torture and things that go splat in the night. It's a thrilling, yet disturbing, tour of that house in neighborhoods across America; the one thatís haunted or the site of a grisly murder or worse. The house in Urban Gothic is that worse one. The group only wishes it were haunted by the time things are said and done.

From official release/information:

From back of book: When their car broke down in a dangerous neighborhood of the inner city, Kerri and her friends thought they would find shelter in the old dark row house. They thought it was abandoned. They thought they would be safe there until morning. They were wrong on all counts. The residents of the row house live in the cellar and rarely come out in the light of day. They're far worse than anything on the streets outside. And they don't like intruders. Before the sun comes up, Kerri and her friends will fight for their very lives...though death is only part of their nightmare.
