Frayed - Tom Piccirilli Another cracking novella from Tom Piccirilli tells of the relationship between two close friends Gray and Eddie Cane, both are authors and Gray is currently housed in a mental institution for attempting to kill Eddie. A borderline psychotic in a clinic that more resembles a holiday camp than your average dull and dreary but functional nuthouse, but still just a touch too spooky.

The two men have a dark history that begins in a place called the Isle of Dogs, destined to return along with others interested in their plight to a place where two boys with imaginations too powerful for the constraints of their friendship created an angel who in return was fated to pick one of them and be killed by the other. Two boys who grew into men, intense and delusional, haunted by murder and betrayal in an intelligently dark tale.
