A suburban horror classic from the prize-winning author of the Peculiar Crimes Unit novels starring Bryant & May, Psychoville reveals the truth about housewives, bloodstains, and the damage one can inflict with a steam iron.
 
England, 1985. When the cruel and heartless hand of urban planning forces fourteen-year-old Billy March and his family to abandon their home in London and relocate to quiet, residential Invicta Cross, Billy holds out hope for a fresh start. Instead, his entire family is methodically and tragically abused by their petty, hostile neighbors. Though Billy eventually befriends a young girl as damaged as himself, he never forgets those humiliations—nor can he forgive them.
 
1995. Invicta Cross has just been voted “Britain’s Favorite New Town” . . . and a stylish young married couple has just moved in. Glamorous, charismatic, and wealthy, they’re instantly popular with the locals. Then a strange series of coincidences begins. As one neighbor after another goes missing, no one suspects that the perfect couple in Balmoral Close might know more than they let on—until a suspicious reporter sets out to discover the truth.
