Thirty-one years ago, Buxly the Butcher went to trial for killing his entire family. He was found guilty, and sentenced to die for those crimes. Now, Janet Hale, a recently divorced nurse, has purchased the house unaware of the brutal murders that took place there so long ago. From the moment she, her 11-year-old son, and his overprotective Rottweiler move in, bad things start to happen. A strange man is caught lurking in the back yard, and the only neighbor turns out to be a crazy old widow. But not everything is going wrong. During the move, Janet meets a handsome charmer. She likes him enough to start dating again, leaving a sitter to watch over her son.

When Michael and his dog, Lucy-Fur, learn firsthand that their home is haunted by one of the victims of the Butcher's grisly act, Michael scours the internet and the local library to find out what happened back then. Maggie, the sitter, brings over a Ouija board and they soon find out that there is more than one dark spirit on the haunt.

Can Lucy-Fur protect her boy from the angry ghost that wants to possess him? Can Michael fight through the madness and terror to find out what really happened? If he does, maybe the tormented souls can be put to rest and his mom can keep the house that she seems to love. If he fails, he just might become one of them.

With the help of Maggie, and a burned out house painter, Michael is going to try. The problem is, not everyone is who they seem...even the dead.

This isn't your average haunted house novel. The Butcher's Boy by Michael Robb: Take a slow ride into terror!

    " Ooh I really liked this one. I thought the ending was a bit weird and disturbing. I didn't think the bad guy would end up that way, I guess it would be a good punishment for what he did though. "

    " The Butcher's Boy by Michael Robb is a ghost story. Robb does not simply write scenes that are creepy, spine chilling and suggestive of a haunting, he straight up tells you. So, if you don't like graphic angry spirits invading bodies of innocent humans, this may not be for you. I need to ponder this a bit more, but it was well written and intense. "

    " Didn't really know anything about this author but gave it a try. I was glad I opened up and read this book. It freaked me out and gripped me from the beginning. How would you feel if you bought a house that you didn't know was haunted due to a murderous event?? More so...how would you feel if your kid saw and apparition and said it had to do with who was murdered in the house??? Then, as if I wasn't already freaked out, you see in the news that there is a murderer on the loose killing young women (beheading them) and sexually assaulting them yet the suspect is a drunk who has been at your house. Kept me captivated and I really didn't want it to end. Great pace and energy given to the characters...LOVED IT! "

    " It was an ok story in the beginning but then fell apart near the middle. Not one I'd ever read again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly Nessling | 1/3/2014

    " Very enjoyable, a little predictable and a touch mediocre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanette Andrusiak | 12/19/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. The characters are fairly well developed, and the plot has some unexpected twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/16/2013

    " Pretty good, usually these types of books have you knowing by the end of the book who the bad guy is and this one is no different, so the surprise wasn't there but a couple times this book really scared me. I would recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Van Vleet | 12/8/2013

    " This was a great book! I would recommend this to anyone who like suspense or supernatural. I stayed up reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open (and when I slept, I dreamed about it!). I cannot wait to pick up Michaels other books. Wonderful writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 12/3/2013

    " Not just another ghost story! Very enjoyable from start to finish, and just when I thought I had it all figured out... wow was I wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 10/26/2013

    " Kinda scary in spots. Great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndi | 9/1/2013

    " Not for the faint of heart. A good ghost story for sure with a very dark and disturbed ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey Newman | 7/3/2013

    " Excellent work with a total ironic ending. Paranormal activity with a great mystery plot makes for a great book. Totally twisted, just like I like it. Would suggest for my students to read, but there is more of a mature theme throughout. Nice work and a great read for those paranormal readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/28/2013

    " Wow, a great ghost story. While it was pretty gory in some parts, it held my attention from beginning to end :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy Walters | 2/22/2013

    " This was engaging. The plot was well thought out, the characters realistic and the haunting chilling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kilgallen | 11/10/2012

    " The Butchers boy is a well written story that kept my intrest the whole way! There seem to be so few good ghost stories and this is right up there with the best. There is an element of "sex and violence" but always in order to advance the story line. A reccomended read for sure! "

    " Practically finished this in one go! Awesome! "
