A busload of captives on an express ride to terror!

It’s the summer of 1995, and the passengers of the Sunday bus into town have realized that something is very, very wrong with their driver. They don’t know that she began her day planning to kill herself. But they know that she’s threatening to kill them. They began the ride as her passengers, but now they’re her captives. She’s already shown she won’t hesitate to use that gun in her hand, and no one wants to be the next to die. They have no idea where she’s taking them, who will be left alive when they get there, or what‘s in store for the survivors. With a madwoman at the wheel, the bus has gone far off its route, deep into insanity. And for most of the passengers, the next stop will be their last.

The reverse engineering in this brutal, bloody debut is a joy to behold as Aaron Dries eviscerates the everyday to reveal the raw meat of his characters. You might want to bandage your fingers when reading - turning the pages so fast can make them bleed.

I had no idea what to expect from Aaron Dries's first novel, but it totally blew me away! From the beginning i was hooked. House of Sighs is gruesome, scary, mean and nasty. As the reader, you have no idea what will happen and when it does you're like "Wow and Woah!" I love his writing style, how he talks about one character's point of view and sprinkles in something like "as his daughter blew some kid's head off". Read it and you'll understand. This is a true, horrifying horror novel, filled with chaos to the maximum level, but done so damn smoothly. I have a new favorite author on my radar.
