NOS4A2 by Joe Hill is an epic novel spanning three decades that horror fans will enjoy because of its unsettling imagery and omnipresent dread.
Ever since Victoria McQueen helped police apprehend serial child abductor Charles Talent Manx, she can't keep out of trouble's way. Manx is in a coma and Vic is receiving phone calls from his victims. His dead victims.
The kids were never found; when they call, they tell Vic that they're not dead, they're thriving in a place called Christmasland. No matter how hard she tries, she can't forget the boy she found in the back seat of Manx's Rolls-Royce Wraith--a disturbing creature that looked like a vampire, with hooks for teeth.
So, that might sound creepy to you, but what really got me was Bing, the Gasmask Man, Manx's assistant. He's charged with trapping the mother's of Manx's victims; reading about the House of Sleep and Bing gassing his victims into submission nearly put me over the edge.
