Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Six years ago Miles Gale's first wife was murdered. Three years later his second wife disappeared. Now his youngest son has vanished from the back seat of their car. Seeking clues in the disturbing pattern of events, the police are unwittingly led by Gale's second wife, Marie, a demoness who can traverse time and cloud men's minds. Marie killed Gale's first wife so she could have a son by him, and has now claimed the boy. Wright ( The Place ) fails to convince: there are so many loose threads that the plot seems never to have been woven, and attempts at characterization seem limited to players who make only cameo appearances. This effort to straddle the horror/fantasy boundary disappoints in both genres. (June)
School Library Journal
YA-- An intriguing book about the sudden disappearance of six-year-old Aaron Gale. While riding with his older brother, C. J., and their father, Miles, the child simply vanishes from the vehicle. This alone is odd enough, but the 8-year-old murder of Miles's first wife remains unsolved; his second wife, Marie, disappeared just 18 months before Aaron and has not been heard of since. Coupled with such suspicious events are C. J.'s photographic memory and his father's work as an archaeologist. Some of the characters are introduced only superficially, yet this weakness is slight in contrast to the spellbinding plot. The book could enhance the curriculum in several areas--mysticism, Native Americans, parapsychology--in addition to being an enjoyable piece of fiction.-- Diane Goheen, Topeka West High School Library, KS
