For members, social media is a tool to share pure, murder-filled ecstasy. Killing is a business of painstaking details, and every killer, from novice to expert needs a place to go to see what others are doing, from the ways they select victims to the methods they use to bloody their hands. The Snuff Syndicate is where they can brag, ask for advice and revel in their most gratifying hobby.
"The Snuff Syndicate" offers readers a unique look into the gritty world of bloodletting. Keith Gouveia's novella strings together eight disparate stories of serial killers. As his novella unfolds, it reacts to and intersects more and more with stories by C.A. Burns, Kevin Cockle, Lorne Dixon, Giovanna Lagana, Mark Onspaugh, Gerald S. Parker, Marsheila Rockwell, & J. T. Seate. This unique collaborative-anthology reads more like a multi-point-of-view novel rather than an anthology.

Keith Gouveia takes every reader into a world where serial killers come together in a form of social media in The Snuff Syndicate. Instead of just one gruesome story about murder, this book offers readers several short stories combined into one. In The Snuff Syndicate, readers are given a unique look into the thoughts of serial killers in a way like never before. In the story, The Snuff Syndicate is created to offer a place for serial killers to come together and share their tales of murder, techniques, pictures, and advice for the next kill. In this secret forum, members can learn some of the most horrifying details about murders done by other members.
I personally really enjoy horror stories, the more gruesome the better. I thought this book was very uniquely written. The whole concept of The Snuff Syndicate is very unique, which proves to be an interesting topic for a story. I rated this book four stars instead of five because although this book was pretty gruesome, it just wasn't gruesome enough for me. I like to read about chilling details that paint a picture in my mind and this book didn't do that for me. Some of the stories were a little bit too slow paced for me, but most of them were great. When it comes to new horror books, most of them are pretty much the same, which makes me lose my interest pretty fast. Not this one though. I was hooked from the very beginning.
