The Boy in the Box by Marc E Fitch

Welcome to Day 8 of the Blogtour for The Boy In The Box.

10 years ago 4 friends were on a hunting trip when a tragic accident led to the death and  burial (in the box of the title) of a young boy.

10 years later they have told nobody and the guilt is eating away at them - to the point one of them takes his own life.

The remaining friends find out that developers are going to start digging up the burial site and surrounding area so decide they have to go back and move the body.

On their return to the woods they feel they are being followed (or maybe stalked!) and what was a nervy horror story turns the dial up to 11 to become a full blown psychological terror-fest.

I can safely say this is one of the best genre books of recent years for me. The kind of book that got me reading horror (I made the mistake of reading part of it when I woke at 3:30 one morning - in the dark with just the light of my kindle and my imagination - and freaky dreams followed that)

A solid 4/5 stars
