"William Cook tells a gruesome story with a sense of authenticity that makes you question with considerable unease if it really is fiction, after all."- Graham Masterton, author of The Manitou and Descendant "This man is simply scary. There is both a clinical thoroughness and a heartfelt emotional thoroughness to his writing. He manages to shock as well as empathize, to scare as well as acclimatize, yet beneath it all is a well read intelligence that demands to be engaged. I loved Blood Related. Ordinarily I hate serial killer stories, but William Cook won me over. He is a unique and innovative talent."- Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Dog Days"BLOOD RELATED is a terrifying Psychological Thriller.
