When a pair of moonshiners out on an illicit midnight delivery disappear, no one pays much attention. Until their truck is found abandoned on a lonely back road, and not far away, their mutilated bodies. Stumped, the local police chalk it up to a wild animal.
But the killer isn’t done.
Another attack swiftly follows. A pair of teenagers at a popular swimming hole. But this time there is a survivor, and she tells of a monstrous beast with yellow eyes and sharp teeth. A monster that should not exist.
Now, with the townsfolk up in arms and fearing yet more deadly attacks, Sheriff John Decker must hunt this impossible creature and bring it down before it can kill again. Because if he doesn’t, the next victim might be someone he loves...
Part thriller, part supernatural horror, you won’t want to stop reading this action-packed supernatural thriller until the very end.
If you are a fan of James Rollins, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Steve Alten, or Michael Crichton, you will love the John Decker series.
What Readers are Saying
★★★★★ This was an amazing book, it had something of everything. Romance, suspense, and horror. I loved that the book was written from quite a few people's perspectives as you got to follow the story a lot better. I could not put it down and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good, but easy read. It flowed beautifully and kept me up till the late hours of the night. I'm just sad it is done, but can't wait for number two. – Corine, Goodreads Review
★★★★★ Strong really delivers in all the key points in this horror novel. The characters are likable, the creature is wicked, the plot is action-packed and the storyline delivers plenty of suspense. I'm definitely picking up the other two books in the series. This is exactly the type of book that hooked me into this genre to begin with. That being said, thank you Anthony Strong for providing me a few serious hours of entertainment?! – Paula Sahraoui, Amazon review
★★★★☆ Well-written, more literate than most books in this genre. A spooky atmosphere, a bit of horror laced with mystery, and decently developed characters make this book worth the read. I've already ordered the two sequels. Those who enjoy the creepy paranormal should keep an eye on this author; nothing "cozy" about his style! – Kindle Customer, Amazon review
★★★★☆ Loved the gritty characters and wild plot. The sheriff is a new type of hero and more realistic than the general law enforcement official. The other characters are interwoven into a rollercoaster plot. – Kindle Customer, Amazon review
★★★★★ This is a really good read from start to finish, if you like a bit of horror combined with an interesting historical legend and a bit of mystery then this is the book for you. - god001, Amazon review
★★★★★ An exciting and fast-paced read! In the best traditions of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Bentley Little, et al, Anthony M Strong has delivered a rollicking read where alongside a well-told, thrilling story, you get fine characterization which makes you care about the people populating this tale! I would heartily recommend it - I am looking forward to reading more of his work......- F Dalgleish, Amazon review
