Overview

"All the right scares in all the right places." The Seattle Times
A telephone rings in the dead of night with shocking news for single mother MaryAnne Carpenter: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, Joey, a sad and silent adolescent and MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned. But as MaryAnne rushes with her family to the Wilkenson's ranch to embrace her young charge, disturbing questions mount. Was it an accident that killed her friends? Or murder?
Now, as winter transforms the ranch into a place of blinding, dangerous storms, a series of horrific murders, killings that suggest a raging animal and defy solution by the local police, draw ever closer to MaryAnne and her young family.

I have to say, I never imagined this story to turn into a "warewolf" type story, but I def liked it. I thought some parts were a bit gory, other oarts had me on the verge of tears, but all in all its a supsenful and good read. Saul has a way of making his readers want more, and of course after reading this, and many of his other books im excited to pick up my next one. I recommend this novel to fans of the horror and suspence genre. The characters are believable, and you feel like your part of the story.

This certainly wasn't one of Saul's better efforts but I found the book intriguing as the story lead me along toward a somewhat climatic ending. A creature stalking the woods in an isolated community is always compelling in a good horror novel.

This was my first John Saul read, and I thought it was pretty good... It could have been more suspensfull and exiting, but it still had a good plot... The ending was...disappointing, and I hope he writes a sequel... I do recommend this book...

The excitement never quit. I looked forward to the next time I could read. What I enjoyed was that it was really close to believable,which is important to me.

I haven't read anything from John Saul in about ten years. This book was refreshing because it is different from a lot of other books . I do recommend this book who hasn't read any of John Saul books in a long time

I am a huge John Saul fan. This however was not one of his better works. Joey is the victim. Victim of science, nature, his biological father who has been lurking in the mts. throughout his childhood watching, and a victim by his abusive stepfather. Maryanne was a character I thought was weak and pathetic. She really did not explore what she was getting into in the Idaho mts. and her child pays the price. The only aspect of the book I appreciated was the backdrop of Idaho sounded quite lovely. susan

It took me a while to read this Saul book. I am a huge fan on John Saul and was surprised to see there was not as much suspense as usual. A lot of deaths but no suspense. I do recommend this book though. It is a great story, with a very sad twist. But I do recommend reading his other stuff first.
