The Bodies Left Behind is an epic cat-and-mouse chase, told nearly in real-time, and is filled with Deaver's patented twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside - the woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she'd stopped.

The opening scene reels you in and doesn't let you breathe until the end. I at times felt I could identify with the main character but also became annoyed with her. Tense and suspenseful I couldn't stop listening.

I love reading or watching accounts of Ed and Lorraine Warren! This book gives you a glimpse of how their work helps others. More than that, when you look at the time line paired with what the family went through, how terrible. The movie moved so quickly that this books gives you a greater understanding of how the family was assaulted. It gave me an even greater appreciation for what not only Ed and Lorraine do, but the priests who are called on to fight the true evil monsters.

Pain, horror, fear - these are the things that have comprised best-selling novelist Lance Metzger's life. His childhood remains a riddled wasteland of abuse by a sadistic father and abandonment by an apathetic mother. In turn his only refuge became his writing. When Lance loses his ability to write and becomes haunted by a nightmare that he'd thought was buried, he is drawn inexplicably to a house on the shores of Lake Superior, where he finds his muse once again - but something is waiting for him when he arrives.
