Soon neighbors begin to disappear - only to reappear as the lifeless centerpieces of unspeakable displays. Convulsed with terror, the townsfolk whisper of the legendary Curse of the Forty-fives. No one is safe from a killer who stalks his prey in the blackness of night...and whose grotesque crimes are revealed by circling buzzards under the cruel summer sun.
With the help of Corrie Swanson, an eighteen-year-old misfit, Pendergast unearths the secrets of this isolated town - from the dark histories of its inhabitants to the darker mysteries hidden in the endless cornfields. And ultimately, as he unravels the local curse and the truth of Medicine Creek's greatest enigma, the Ghost Warrior Massacre of 1865, Pendergast comes face-to-face with the unimaginable evil that lies at the heart of this small town.

"The Preston-Child team scores another big winner, perfect for the summer; highly recommended¿" (Library Journal)
"Yummy beach reading." (Kirkus Reviews)
This book grabs you right from the start and never lets go! And the ending will not only send chills up your spine, it will leave you absolutely stunned! If you like mystery, thrills and chills, you just can't pass this book up!
I rated this book 1 star only because there isn't anything lower.
The story makes no sense. The writing ranges from dull and trite to gratuitously gruesome. The book raises some serious questions about the emotional health of the authors.
Still life statrs out better than it ends. I out it down and read two (2) other books and finished it because I paid for it. It was ok.
