"Mercy House is 100% distilled nightmare juice. Adam Cesare notches up the horror to nigh-unbearable levels. Even my skin was screaming by the end of this book."
--Nick Cutter, author of The Troop and Little Heaven
"Of all the new writers busting out on the scene, Cesare's the young guy with the greatest encyclopedic gorehound know-how, blistering cinematic pace, unquenchable love of both fiction and film, and hell-bent will to entertain. Cesare does just about everything right."
--John Skipp, Fangoria
"Sick and sardonic and just plain brilliant."
--Duane Swierczynski, author of Revolver, on Tribesmen
"The prologue of The Summer Job is one the best and scariest openings to a horror novel I've ever read...The rest of the novel is equally great."
"The textbook definition of a nail-biter. The Summer Job is a kissing cousin to inbred classics from masters like Ketchum and Kilborn. Cesare's best novel yet."
