Alan Ryker knows all too well about things that go bump in the night and how to convey that childhood fear to adults through his books (read Nightmare Man if you haven't already). I had that in mind when I picked up this book and he didn't disappoint!
While I didn't care for Aaron too much at first (due to his missing brother's accusations against him), I grew to like and respect him as the story progressed, as he showed more care, compassion and remorse.
Do be warned, the story starts out a little slow but it's setting some solid groundwork for what's coming. It's well worth it to keep reading as Ryker cranks up the creepy tension into full gear all the way to the breathtaking ending. Highly recommended!
