WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907...
Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...
A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.
Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying—maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...

I'm torn somewhat about this book. It consists of mostly graphic depictions of torture and mass murder, but like a train wreck it's hard to look away. I found all of it distasteful, but the story did keep moving and the narration was perfect. I suppose my only other complaint is that it had a few places where it could have broken away from the tired old formulas they use to write stories that make each one identical to the last, and try something new. Instead they went with the old "our government is secretly evil" story.
It kept me riveted. The story line is plausable when you hear bits and pieces of information the government has kept hidden for "national security"
The final round up od escape.
No But I will
I enjoy all kinds of books, but most recently I have been listening to thrillers, horror, history and documentary titles. Audible is a great way to get to 'read' books when you don't have the time to actually sit down with a paper book and it offers an affordable alternative (especially in NZ where books are an extremely expensive luxury) to discover new writers.
I would definitely recommend the book to horror fans, although others might find the graphic violence gratuitous and excessive, especially at the beginning. So be warned. I found the book to be addictive listening and was disappointed when I finally got to the end. At the start, the series of gruesome events was a bit depressing. However the well developed characters and fast paced events quickly take over to draw the reader in and keep you listening. Some unexpected twists in the plot add to the interest.
What happens to the couple at the beginning of the book is memorable because it is so graphic and brutal.
The scene where one of the women fights off one of the bad guys and gets away, when it looks certain that she will be killed. This is because it marks the start of people fighting back rather than just being slaughtered.
Yes. The scene with the dog and the monkey.
A great narrator who definitely kept the fast pace of the novel going. I have already bought another title by this author and am looking forward to listening to it.
This book moves along at a cracking pace. Never a dull moment, grips you every chapter.
Phil Gigante has done an excellent narration combined with sounds and voices.
If you loved the Jack Daniel's book as I did you will really enjoy this.
Highly recommend if you like to be on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The narrator Phil Gigante does an awesome job santiago will scare the hell out of you
hits you right between the eyes and keeps coming
the sheriff that poor man never got to enjoy his chili
a must read or listen !!!!!!!!!!!
No, unless I knew they were into this type of book
Not another one like this
I love Phil Gigante. His performances are always great. That was the main reason I purchased this book. I had never read a Jack Kilborn novel before. I will check out his other books. I just may not purchase.
No, I don't think there is anything worth following up.
Thank God for Phil Gigante or I never would have listened to the whole book!
I have no idea
unoriginal and annoying
overly dramatic/traumatic! beyond gratingly annoying
too many to mention
This was a large chunk of wasted time
This was a great book - that kept you listening - and the narrator, Phil Gigante - is so far the BEST - that I have listened to - it made me actually picture the characters by the voices the did for them - KUDOS!!!!!!!!
Plot and Narrator!
Never- but for sure will NOW - this is how I am going to search for books - by the narrator!
Action, Horror, Mystery - you get it ALL - and romance - through all the tragedy - and family coming together - it had EVERYTHING!
OMGosh - I was thinking last night -when the book was over - OH - I wish this was a movie!
Reduce the gore
No, but he does very well with the voices and building the terror.
Shock, revulsion, and disappointment that I had wasted one of my two free Audible.com downloads.
Imagine the mental picture the listener forms as early in the book a woman is butchered
ALIVE!, and then not killed until her husband is helpless on the bed beside her!
