Michael Simmons

My PermaBound rep gave me a copy of Simmon's Vandal. I liked Pool Boy (13 Mar 2006) a lot, and Vandal was not a disappointment. Boy who sings in a KISS tribute band (and is appropriately arch about it) is terrorized by his older brother, who can't make a good decision to save his soul. Interesting depiction of how the family deals with this, and the ensuing tragedy. The end let me down a little because it didn't wrap anything up, but then, that's realism! Do recommend. Will look for other titles by this author.
