Even the worst of us need someone to come home to. And Jacob Mallory is the worst of all. Jake, a thrill-seeking psychopathic serial killer, has lived under the radar for years, operating within the city of New York, making kill after kill and emboldened by his lack of capture. But Jake has one big surprise coming his way. When he gets a call from the hospital to pick up a vulnerable patient, one who claims that Jake is his emergency contact, he feels like he's won the lottery. But is there more to Nathan McGuire than meets the eye? And will this supposedly vulnerable young man make or break the city's most notorious uncaught killer? American Psycho meets Romeo and Juliet, and this satirical horrormance will have you rooting for the bad guy as he makes space in his heart for something more. Even if that something proves to be his undoing. Everybody needs someone to come home to, and what is life without family? The family you choose is the one you deserve.

Superb from beginning to end!

Elton Sassafras Skelter! I’m not supposed to love people who hurt me yet every damn time I read one of your books, you do. You hurt my soul and I can’t stop reading you. NEXT OF KIN is the latest in making me weep. Jacob has a secret. A secret that has been going on for a very long time. Nathan knows about his secret and is willing to risk his life to stop Jacob. But… what happens when everything you have planned goes up in flames and all that’s left is the unknown? Elton pulls in the reader immediately with his Chandler Morrison/Bret Easton Ellis prose. And if you know me, I don’t compare anyone to Morrison. He’s elite but if someone WAS to be compared in prose and nihilistic characters, it’s Skelter. He nails it in this novel between different POV shifts and the reader’s inability to see the ending. Not a shocking star rating: A HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND 5/5.
