Product Description

Unable to convince her husband they are ready to become parents, trophy wife
Erika decides to buy a puppy. She heads into rural Missouri in search of a
Yorkie pup, only to find more than dogs caged in the barn of a secluded
puppy mill...

After the death of her mother, Bobbie Jean finds herself living with her
aunt and uncle at their rural farm. Without many options, she begins to sell
her body to anyone to turn a quick buck. But when she discovers Uncle Levi's
dirty secret in the barn, Bobby Jean must decide whether to join the family
business.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"If you like hardcore, and I mean Hardcore with a capital 'H,' horror with purpose, and are able to find the value in movies like HOSTEL and can appreciate the tenor of stories like AMERICAN PSYCHO, then you will absolutely love this book." --Cheryl Anne Gardner, POD PEOPLE

"This was a fun book! Okay, so I know it was horror and I don't know if I'm supposed to think it was fun, but it was. It has some twists and turns that are expected, but the author takes these expectations and bends them into something else. Williams really owns them. He does such a wonderful job of allowing the characters to speak for themselves and by the end of the book, the suspension of disbelief is still gnawing at your brain. I would definitely rec it."--Saranna DeWylde, author of HOW TO LOSE A DEMON IN 10 DAYS

"Brett Williams is a writer who hooks the reader from the first sentence and holds that interest until the last. With Williams, you are guaranteed to be entertained." --Mark Allan Gunnells, author of THE QUARRY

"Bottom line, FAMILY BUSINESS will not be for everyone, but for those with a literary taste for this kind of vicious, bloody, no-holds-barred horror, it's practically a must-read." --Mark Allen, author of THE ASSASSIN'S PRAYER

4.0 out of 5 stars Vicious, ballsy, hardcore horror 29 July 2014
By Mark Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
"Family Business" belongs firmly in the horror subgenre generally referred to as "torture porn," and is one of the better examples you're apt to read for quite some time. If you scan your bookshelf and see names like Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee, and Wrath James White sitting there, then this nasty little novel should be sitting there too, proud of its ballsiness and "eff you" attitude.

Let's be clear--this book is not for people who think that Dean Koontz is the epitome of hardcore. This is far grittier, with a mean streak a mile long, and all the rape and torture and killing ensure the story burrows under your skin and sticks there for a while. Thankfully, Brett Williams is an accomplished author, and his writing elevates the subject matter above cheap exploitation (again, Ketchum comes to mind, and that is high praise). He has something to say, and while at times the message is nearly overwhelmed by the hopeless misery and grisly violence, it is still there for those who are paying attention.

Bottom line, "Family Business" will not be for everyone, but for those with a literary taste for this kind of vicious, bloody, no-holds-barred horror, it's practically a must-read.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Love Story...Eventually 1 November 2014
By LC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought I knew what this story was going to be about. There are so many books and movies out there where the attractive people are hunted, kidnapped, etc. by the 'rednecks', 'inbreds', or 'mountain/hill people'. THIS book, however, is NOT what you think it's going to be. There is a pretty big twist to our girl Erika's story, and frankly, I didn't see it coming until it was right in front of me (kind of like Erika).

Reading this book was kind of like driving by a car wreck. I didn't connect with any of the characters in this story, but I'll be damned if I couldn't look away (or stop reading). To be clear, there is a lot of graphic violence in this book, so if you're the squeamish type, steer clear. I do have to say that I didn't feel any of the violence was gratuitous. Every act served a purpose in telling each character's story and what motivated them.

I gave this book four stars because I really did like the twist in this story. I took one star off due to the ending. While endings don't always have to be neat and tidy, there was still so much more I wanted to know now that certain events had transpired. I can only hope that there's a second book that I'm unaware of, or that the author has plans to write a sequel. I must know how G-Man reacts, what happens with Stephen and Shelby, what will happens to Bub, Uncle Levi, and BJ. I'm off to browse some of Mr. Williams' other works...but if you haven't read this one yet...what are you waiting for? Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty from ashes 4 October 2014
By Rodney W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is pretty graphic, but it left a lasting impression on me as to how tenuous life is, and how everything can change in a split second by a bad decision. The reader sees the total loss of humanity in the main character, Erika, a spoiled little rich bitch who actually grows as a person through her debasement. It was excellent. AND if you have ever been in the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, you will be able to relate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic shocker, nasty book. 12 September 2014
By CRL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Stunningly vile, raunchy, pulp novel. Many cringe-worthy scenes, guaranteed to push buttons on just about every reader. This book is not for everybody - if you're not into grindhouse pulp horror, steer clear. Otherwise, come right in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked! 28 February 2015
By Jodi Colpitts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure if I wanted to read this, passed on it a few times, because I knew there would be animals being hurt, and I am an animal lover. But I figured, if it was too much I'd just skip over those parts. Only briefly was there animal abuse, the story was so good, creepy! I think I have a new author to add to my lists of favorites!
