Based on actual Native American folklore of the Mohave, a demon escapes a cluster of stars called, The Seven Sisters and comes to earth on a meteor. The Mohave are in peril of this demon, Kwayu who eats its victims alive and takes their souls. They ask the Seven Sisters for intervention. The Sisters hear the cry of the desert people and build a prison to house Kwayu called Spirit Rock. They teach the shamans of the Mohave how to control the demon with the help of a talisman given to the tribe. But when the last shaman dies and the old ways are forgotten, Kwayu wakes. Can they find the clues to control the demon once again and stop the strange disappearance of the desert people? Or is that knowledge lost forever?

Ever wonder if horror fiction can be defined as literary? Wonder no more - Jawbone proves that it definitely can. This is not your typical horror story. Yes, you have guts and gore - but more than that - you have a compelling story told in a way that is reminiscent of old masters. Gleich writes with passion, his descriptions involve all of your senses as you read. His characters break the mold of the typical horror genre. Because of this, I call Jawbone, horror for grown-ups. It is not a book that once read you forget about quickly. The story sticks with you. I can see this book becoming one of those that I re-read often.
