The title The Butcher's Son is an apparent play on Thomas Perry's great 1982 American classic The Butcher's Boy. I'm unimpressed by such mechanisms, so this novel started with two strikes against it. Thankfully The Butcher's Son is an excellent suspense thriller with a killer plot twist near the end. Peter Berkrot is far from being among the best audio book narrators, but he does a fine job with this one.

Ian Quinn grew up afraid of his grandfather and thinks he may have hurt people, his father disappeared when he was very young, he thinks his sister and father are both deceased and his mother spent many years in a bottle.
As an adult Ian is shocked when he is notified of his father's recent death. When he returns to his childhood home he learns every thing he believed as a child was a falsehood with the exception of his mother and now unless he can figure out his family's secrets his life will be ending soon.
This is fast paced with a jaw dropping twist ending.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
