Horns by Joe Hill

Horns begins with Ignatius "Ig" Perrish waking from a drunken stupor to find he's sprouted horns like the devil. Ig was drinking to drown his sorrow on the anniversary of his beloved's rape and murder. Ig has been ostracized in his small town since they all assume he's guilty of his girlfriend's murder and that his father's fame and powerful attorney arranged for him to avoid a trial. Ig discovers two facts about his new horns. First, only he can see them. Second, they allow him to hear everyone's dark secrets. He decides to use his newfound power to find his girlfriend's murderer and exact his revenge. Joe Hill's second novel (Heart-Shaped Box) has received positive reviews with the USA Today saying, "Horns isn't a perfect novel, but it's devilishly good. The complicated, over-the-top ending doesn't quite match the elegant pacing of the rest of the book. But Hill is a terrific writer with a great imagination. He has a special talent for taking us and his characters to very weird places."
