Product Description

Product Description

"A creepy spine-chiller"

"Akin to old school James Herbert"

They say you should never go back. But sometimes you don't have a choice.
After Gary Bull's miraculous survival from an explosion in Afghanistan, he is compelled to return to the small town where he grew up, a place that he thought he would never set his eyes upon again. Memories of a past long buried come back to him and he finds himself forced to face the horror of what he did when he was young. It started with the bullying...

Newton Mills appears normal enough on the surface, but scratch the surface and there is something far more sinister.

It has more than its fair share of graveyards and the skeletons are liable to walk right out of the closet.

Newton Mills is the scene of a despicable crime.

No one gets out alive.

HASH(0x9d052540) out of 5 stars Bully for you! Nov. 25 2011
By Vincent Rodriguez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Bully is a slow burning novel, which entertains, sickens, entrances and thoroughly entertains right up to the splendidly set up finale. I have to agree with other reviewers that this is so much more than a horror novel, and indeed it holds its own alongside the first class psychological thrillers of the Harris and King. Kirby has clearly studied the masters of this genre and as far as a second effort goes, this is right up in the first division. Through a meticulously woven narrative, he succeeds in making the reader feel uneasy, yet thoroughly enthralled as Gary Bull evolves from the perpetrator of childhood evils to the victim of the most harrowing psychological torture. In spite of his vileness in youth, Gary is a likeable character and you do find yourself rooting for him as he descends into terror. I know I should have felt that justice was being served, but sympathy for Gary was still hard to shake. This is the hallmark of a masterly creation, of which Kirby should be congratulated. The book is a real page-turner and can be read almost at one sitting.
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys dark fiction, and I for one, will be searching out Kirby's other tales.

HASH(0x9d052594) out of 5 stars A most compelling read July 15 2010
By Joseph Stanley - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an impressively accomplished novel - from the first word it seizes a grip on the reader which doesn't let up until the close. It's impassioned, involving and visceral and Kirby is deft at planting in the reader's minds possibilities which then terrifyingly come to pass. It isn't for the faint hearted though - it's brutal, dark and at times claustrophobic. The choking sense of drama and the perfectly nuanced dialogue all make this book a thrilling proposition. I'm not usually a fan of horror but this book is really worth making an exception for.

HASH(0x9d0529b4) out of 5 stars In need of editing Dec 20 2012
By Bear with a sore head - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The summary captured my interest and I waited until I had some me-time to sit down and read it.

Bully started off OK although I found the first person narrative rather grating and that didn't improve as we progressed However that's symptomatic of the style and shouldn't be enough to put you off. What did put me off were the grammar mistakes that could be found on most pages and, worse still, the repetition and the puns on Bull's name.

There was very little emphasis on character development, too. Here we have two 'Bands of Brothers' - the one in Afghanistan and the one in Newton Mills - yet we know little about them.

I think part of the problem is because the book spanned a number of genres; war, action and horror. That makes for an interesting mix but it's difficult to pull off.

Sadly, I gave up a quarter of the way through. Maybe it got better but I couldn't persevere in order to find out. What it does need is an editor to sort out the errors, do away with the puns (because they reduce the impact of the horror) and decide on a genre with the author and stick with it.

It's worth much more than one star but I don't see it getting a three as it stands.
