Now a major Hollywood film starring Daniel Radcliffe: read it first, if you dare ...Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache ...and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power - with just a touch he can see people's darkest desires - to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

Joe Hill is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.It's gotten to the point that if the book is written by Joe Hill I'm going to read it .
.....it is the day after the 1st anniversary of your girlfriends rape and murder,which everyone in town thinks you did.
you wake up with a horrible headache, from your previous nights drinking binge. you look in the mirror and find your forehead has sprouted two devilish horns.
every person who sees your horns want to tell you all of their worst thoughts, compelled to seek your advice about acting on them.
and this is just the beginning.....
"Horns" is one of those books that starts out catching your interest right away, grabs on and doesn't let go until it gets you to the end. It's entertaining, exciting but also rather deep and thoughtful, definitely an emotional rollercoaster. The characters are well developed and you can feel an emotional connection to them.
