Jennifer's Review
It’s a good book. 
It’s about a family named the Daytons who run their own business. It’s a shady business, and one day the owner learns that a man named Fairbanks wants to take over the business, or so he thinks. Fairbanks starts killing people in horrible ways that are hard to stomach. 
The owner’s name is Ed Dayton, so he gets his sons involved in the business and the killings. As the book goes on, everyone in the family is trying to figure out what’s going on and how to stop Fairbanks. What is going on? Does Fairbanks want to take over the business? What happens to each son? What happens to Fairbanks? 
It’s a good book, but only for those who can handle reading about horrible ways to be killed. 
4 stars.
