2. The Devil All The Time, by Donald Ray Pollock

Following a small cast of characters in rural Southern Ohio and West Virginia from the end of World War II to the 1960's may not sound like the premise of a shocking novel. But the characters of The Devil All The Time have dark, even bloody, secret lives (like a husband and wife pair of serial killers), and this gritty, tense novel by Donald Ray Pollock (author of the acclaimed and equally gritty novel "Knockemstiff") will have you on the edge of your seat.
