Disturbing story quite well-written

Dr. Potter's Medicine Show - Eric Scott Fischl

 

 

This story takes place in the Old West around the end of the 19th century among the residents and artists of a travelling medicine show selling the usual ultimate remedy but with fiendish ulterior motives. The characters are the main attraction to this novel and they are well-conceived but mostly an unsympathetic lot.

 

With quite a lot of bloodshed, distasteful sexual abuse and death, this will not be to everyone's taste and I honestly thought of abandoning it several times but saw it through to the end. For the horror story aficionado.
