KIN is garnering some terrific reviews. I'm pleased to be able to share some of them with you here:

"If you're a fan of Jack Ketchum, Richard Laymon, or movies like THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and DELIVERANCE, don't miss KIN. Burke's novel not only re-imagines the classic slasher tropes, but it invents new ones. This is a modern classic, and I cannot recommend it highly enough." - FEARNET

"If you took the moral quandaries about revenge, justice and violence against evil from Dennis Lehane's Patrick Kenzie novels, spread it over the sprawling cast of a Stephen King thriller, and mixed it with the Southern Gothic grotesques of Eudora Welty, you might end up with something like Kealan Patrick Burke's new novel, KIN." - LITSTACK

"From the first chapter I found myself comparing KIN to the absolute best work of Jack Ketchum, James White Wrath, and Richard Laymon. You might be thinking that I've listed an awful lot of great authors here and mentioned more than a few classics in this review and that there's no way this book could live up to that hype. You'd be wrong. KIN is not only the best novel I've read all year, it is one of the most horrifying ones I've ever read. I hope you give it a shot." - HORROR WORLD

"It's odd that an Irish transplant to the Northern US has written one of the best Southern Gothic novels in recent memory. I'll look forward to Burke's next work just as much as I hated to see this one end. I would highly recommend KIN to lovers of old fashioned horror fiction with a twist. If you're going to read just one noir cannibal revenge novel this year, KIN should fit the bill." - DARK DISCOVERIES

"THIS is serious horror fiction that has set a high standard for future stories in this subgenre. Don't miss it." - THE CROW'S CAW

"Many stories start with a group of kids taking a wrong turn. None that I’ve seen or read pick up in the emotional aftermath of their torture. The raw feeling and realism that follow Claire’s recovery has you rooting for her until the very end. An excellent read and highly recommended." - E-BOOK BIN

Kin is truly a great read and one that will not soon be forgotten. If you are still on the fence about this one, climb on over and give it a try. You won't regret it.

Thanks guys!

You are very welcome. I can't thank you enough for writing Kin and supplying me years of goosebumps while driving through the countyside.

You know, I actually drove through Alabama a few months back. Hard to believe I got such a dark novel out of such a beautiful state.

I'm guessing that you only drove through it and did not stop and talk to any of the residents then! Just a guess...

P.S. As not to offend any Alabama folk I am just kidding ;)

Best be careful, son. You don't want Papa-In-Gray to catch wind o' that.

I have such a strong visual image in my head of Mamma-In-Bed and Papa-In-Gray. I have said it before, and will say it again Kin is a great story!

Thanks Martin! I've gotten an overwhelming amount of mail as a result of those characters, and that one scene in particular.
