ASBO: A Novel of Extreme Terror – Iain Rob Wright – Genre – Horror / Suspense
Blurb: YOUR FEAR IS THEIR ENTERTAINMENT…
Andrew’s life is one of bored contentedness: a teenage daughter, a faithful wife, and a middle-class job. He even has a Mercedes. His life is without drama, and the comfort of middle-age is setting in.
That all changes when he refuses to buy a pack of cigarettes for the local gang of youths. Led by the emotionally unstable, and sadistic, Frankie, the gang target Andrew and his family in an escalating campaign of terror and violence that threatens their very lives. It isn’t long before Andrew starts to wish that he’d just brought those damn cigarettes.
My Review: A very scary short story which is gripping, full of suspense with some really brutal and horrific scenes. Not for the faint-hearted, this one stays in your mind for quite some time after finishing.
