Overview

"Something is murdering my men."

Thus reads the message received from a Nazi commander stationed in a small castle high in the remote Transylvanian Alps. Invisible and silent, the enemy selects one victim per night, leaving the bloodless and mutilated corpses behind to terrify its future victims.

When an elite SS extermination squad is dispatched to solve the problem, the men find something that's both powerful and terrifying. Panicked, the Nazis bring in a local expert on folklore--who just happens to be Jewish--to shed some light on the mysterious happenings. And unbeknownst to anyone, there is another visitor on his way--a man who awoke from a nightmare and immediately set out to meet his destiny.

The battle has begun: On one side, the ultimate evil created by man, and on the other...the unthinkable, unstoppable, unknowing terror that man has inevitably awakened

After reading BLACK WIND, DEMONSONG and IMPLANT by F Paul Wilson, I had to read his other books, and THE KEEP was the next in line. I bought it for my NOOK and read it in two day, well a night and a day. I could not put it down. The characters are original and even the weird ones are believable. I am looking for ARYANS AND ABSINTHE. I've also read THE PEABODY-OZYMANDIAS TRAVELING CIRCUS & ODDITY EMPORIUM and THE LAST RAKOSH, and plan to get all the REPAIRMAN JACK books as well.

It was difficult to put this book down. It starts out very quickly and holds your attention. One of the better horror novels I have read.
