This book is fascinating, on so many different levels. The one that struck me the most, because I've lived through it, though under different circumstances, was the Culture Shock that one main character experiences, when completely removed from his comfort zone. You can see it in movies and whatnot, but until you are literally placed in an environment that completely goes against anything you've ever experienced before, you can't imagine the shock it sends to the system. And Dan Jolley captures that sensation fully when he brings one of his two main characters; Colin Massey, from upstate Connecticut to Red Springs, GA. in the aftermath of 'The Storm'. The racial tension and prejudice among the characters is so real and thick, you could cut it with a knife. And how do you track down a killer, when you can't trust anyone around not to stab you in the back at their first opportunity. Another great find in this book, is the relationship that grows between two outcasts working together, against time and the rest of the surrounding society, in a race to identify the monster running a torture dungeon. All in all, Great book. Great characters. Great story-lines. I'm glad I read it. You will be too.

What a fantastic story! A small southern town gets ripped apart by a deadly tornado which uncovers a creepy secret. The local sheriff finds herself deep in a mystifying horror, and can only trust a few people. The story reveals several characters with nefarious intent, but the one behind the horror was a complete surprise to me. I did not see that coming. Jolley describes racism in a variety of ways, from overt to covert, obvious to subtle, but ever present. The main characters are well developed, and with the threads he left hanging, I expect the sequel to expand these characters and develop others. The book didn’t so much end, as it did just stop. He isn’t finished. I’m eager for the next book in this series.
