In the days that follow, a small oddly tempered doll called The Gruff will teach Alex how to say no, how to sharpen his claws and how to kill a man. And a triangle of deception will leave Alex wondering who the real victim is.Based on real events, Alex and The Gruff explores the philosophical theme of the effect of the domestication of children through mannerly learning and poses the premise that 'politeness is the discipline of abuse' and is a horror story that will appeal to readers of Stephen King’s trepid subtlety, and to those who thirst for Clive Barker styled blood curdling crescendos.
