With nothing but the clothes on his back - and something horrific snapping at his heels - Jack Winter fled his rural Georgia home when he was just a boy. Watching the world he knew vanish in a trucker’s rearview mirror, he thought he was leaving an unspeakable nightmare behind forever.
Now, years later, the bright new future he’s built suddenly turns pitch black, as something fiendishly familiar looms dead ahead.
Surviving a violent car crash seems like a miracle for Jack’s family, but Jack knows there’s nothing divine about it. The profound evil he uncovered as a boy has finally found him again. The thing that crouched at his bedside with soulless eyes and grinning, razor-sharp teeth is back with plans for Jack and his angelic youngest daughter, and a chilling promise: I’ve always been here, and I’ll never leave.

I really enjoyed this book. Mostly because you can't see what's coming. Just when you think you know what's going to happen or how it will end. Ania surprises you. Well done. I will read all your books.
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
Great story, but a lot of it stays with you and is hard to forget. I would rank it upper middle.
The ending. Enough said.
He did children and adults voices credible. I wouldn't say he is the best of narrators, but he did help the story rather than distract.
The only problem I had was his calling baloney, bologna. I know no one who eats a bologna sandwich but plenty that eat baloney.
What is, will be again.
There is a lot of things going on in this book that people will hate. I hated some of it. If you like horror, than this is about the most horrible book there could be.
Not all endings are happy.
Love internet shopping, from audio books to nail polish to silk scarves. Audible & Amazon are my go to places.
This book really creeps up on the listener. Eric Dove's mild voice puts interest into the story as he details a typical family..some dissent due to not enough money and his band, two sweet little girls an interfering mother-in-law, a husband who can't really remember his youth and a wife who holds it all together.
At about 4 hours we start to get some of the history and as this short audiobook continues even more of the backstory on Jack is divulged.... and then horror comes out.
I listened to it one evening and wished I hadn't.
A good audiobook for fans of Stephen King in his early days.
