This was a pretty good horror story by Malfi. It's a monster type of story that deals with some weird beings that come out of the snow and take over people like in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It follows the story of a couple of people who happen to break down in their car while traveling in the snow and then happen upon a town in crisis. It was a fun read it had a zombie story combined with Invasion of the Body Snatchers vibe to it. One missed chance I thought was the protagonist (Todd) was determined to get to his son by Christmas, but any references to that meeting were was pretty much ignored in the middle of the story, so the emotional impact that could of had driven the main character Todd was lost. Other than that minor gripe this was one of the more enjoyable stories by Malfi I've read. Don't expect some moral lesson or higher level of meaning in these pages, just expect a fun classic horror story, because that's what you get.
Of note the voice actor did a decent job. Unfortunately he does not have multiple voices, so if you are getting a first person account from a male or female character in the story he reads from the same voice, but he is very easy to understand and reads clear, so while he could have been better I really had no complaint because he was easy to hear and follow.
If you want a fun monster style horror story you'll get it with this audio book.
