Overview

It was to be a long-earned vacation for David Petrie and pretty wife Donna.

A cross country tour from the St. Louis Arch to the bright lights of Las Vegas--and a final chance, perhaps, for cancer stricken daughter Pepsi to see the world. No airplanes, no trains...just a leisurely drive together where scenic beauty and unhurried back roads might bring them closer together, hold back time just a little.

But unhurried roads sometimes lead to open deserts, merciless sun and a growing conviction in David's mind that he's somehow gotten his little family lost in the middle of nowhere.

Until the rattling old windmill, wind-blown streets, dark storefronts and broken sidewalks announce the weather beaten desert hamlet...and the hooded glances and uneasy smiles of its strange denizens. Welcome to Clear Water, New Mexico.

Now, just try to get out...

This book may be a tad long but every page is filled with marvelous characterizations and thrills, just like the best of Stephen King. David and Donna and their young daughter Pepsi stumble upon a small town in the New Mexico desert on their way to Las Vegas--Pepsi has a genetic disease that threatens her life and her parents want to take her on one last vacation. But the nightmare they find in Clear Water, which revolves around secrets and lies and the guilt the townspeople share as well as the guilt David feels is as creepy and unsettling as anything I've ever read! Definitely not for the faint of heart, this is a classy, extremely well written thriller. Definitely worth the price and more!
