The Girl Next Door

This book by Jack Ketchum is supposed to be pretty intense. I believe that Stephen King listed it in his horror books appendix at the end of Danse Macabre. I've read one book by Mr. Ketchum, the name of which escapes me right now. It was good, but I found it to be more suspense than horror, which dampened by enthusiasm for it. I'm a huge fan of Mr. Ketchum's writing style, though. Its terseness was an influence on me when my writing had more than its share of purple prose. His style fits perfectly within the suspense/horror genre. Anyway, The Girl Next Door might be worth checking out.
