Overview

Everything changed for Gil Stewart on the day he saw the old man die. Gil had witnessed the bizarre accident on the highway and stopped to help. The old man couldn't be saved, but just before he died he clutched Gil's shirt and whispered a warning: "The Keepers are coming!" That was when Gil's nightmare began. At first he thought it was merely odd, a series of weird coincidences. Household pets started acting strangely. Zoo animals escaped. But now he can see a pattern emerging, a chilling reminder from a past that he can't—or won't—remember. As the true horror becomes clear, and terror builds upon terror, Gil can only await the coming of...the Keepers.

    More Thriller than Horror, and also sort of sad

    This book fits in with Mr. Hands and In Silent Graves, both of which were very good. I found this book rather sad myself. But, still a very good read. I found myself stealing time from other pursuits to sit and read this one.

    Keepers

    I thought that this book was really good, it kept me interested through the whole thing. It start out with the main character, Gil Stewart, and his nephew, Carson. One day when Gil Stewart was driving he witnessed the death of a man he didnt know, but he stopped his car and went to try to help, when he got over there the man grabbed his shirt and whispered in his ear 'the keepers are coming' and died. After this occurance it brought back everything in Gil's past, and forces him to remember and face his demons.
