Like all books relying on nothing but twist this is a great book to read once, and once only. The plot was not to shaby, actualy quite orginal. This is a novel I read rapidly, spareing nothing to savor. i mean what choice did I have in the matter. The writer worte it to be a page burner. Unfortunatly all this hussleing to consitantly discover what happens next came to an abrunt hualt at the ending. It was like the writer just did'nt know what to add, but knowing there was something lacking, and simply siad to him self 'oh, forget it, just stop.' If it had a good ending I certaintly would have rated this book with 3 stars. Working with the notion of some description would do Blaylok a world of good, but I duebt that word description is in his vocabulary.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Southern California is getting drenched. The rainy season only happens once every thirty years or so--at least the kind of endless downpour that fills all the low areas, rivers, and arroyos to overflowing. To most, it's a damn nuisance...as houses careen down mud-weakened cliffs and homes are rendered unlivable. But to a few, its arrival awakens a long-dormant power. A power once revered by ancient Spaniards and Native Americans. For one man in particular, though, it brings with its torrents a chance to finally find peace with his past and the gruesome death of his only daughter. That's not necessarily a good thing, considering that he's the one that killed her. James P. Blaylock has written a chillingly eerie, and truly awesome 21st century ghost story. As extraordinary events surround and consume seemingly ordinary people, the reader is swept away in a cascade of nearly unbearable suspense. To say more would be to reveal too much. It would be well worth your while to pick up this little gem of a book and devour it as soon as possible...that is, if you truly relish the thought of a great read consuming all of your attention!Was this review helpful?
