Publisher's Summary

Frank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of David Morrell's acclaimed Creepers, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death. To save himself and the woman he loves, he must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obsession for unearthing the past. But sometimes the past is buried for a reason.

Scavenger is a brilliant, frightening hunter-hunted tale that layers modern technology over the dusty artifacts of earlier times. The result is a surreal palimpsest, one that contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the game's clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger.

What the Critics Say

"Morrell has a reputation for smart, tightly written, genre-bending fiction, but here he exceeds himself, producing a superbly entertaining novel that will attract readers from multiple genres." (Booklist)
"Patrick Lawlor is highly appropriate as the no-nonsense Balenger. His reading is glib, but forceful....He ratchets up the tense moments and capitalizes on the excitement with ease. With his help, the author keeps listeners guessing to the end." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "Morrell needs better readers--this is one is BAD!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's either the reader or the recording or both--I tend to think it's the reader however. It's hard to listen to the story for any length of time as the


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick G. Lawlor?

    Phil Gigante has narrated


    Do you think Scavenger needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, but that's based on the narrator of this one.


    Any additional comments?

    I put off making this review since I really don't like to say anything bad about people--least in a way it could affect their livelihood or to embarrass them, but after trying to listen to yet another short session of Patrick Lawlor, I decided I needed to vent my frustration.

    "I kept listening, but......"

    Although I finished it, I can't say the book was anything near great. The story never really roped me in - I could have stopped listening at any time, without a second thought. With this book, my mind kept wandering and I mentally needed to remind myself to listen. In addition to the lackluster story, the narrator (in my opinion), is just awful. His voice was annoying, there was very little emotion and he goes overboard with pronunciation of words. I wouldn't recommend using a credit. I did like one of the other books by the author - Creepers.

    "Nice Sequel"

    Nice Sequel to Creepers without "cheating" Nothing worse then a sequal that uses cheap tricks, but this sequal actual stands alone from Creepers as a seperate story that happens to involve the same main characters.
