this is one of the best story I've ever heard, I can't believe I've never read it before, since I'm an avid reader of horror and all things fantastic since my teens. just like Koontz says, this is his best story. the movie versions don't do it justice. audible version of ''Watchers'' is the best version in media of the book. highly recommended.

London, 1758. Beatrice Scarlet has returned to London and found work at St Mary Magdalene's Refuge for fallen women. Beatrice enjoys the work and her apothecary skills are much needed. But when 12 girls sent to a factory in Clerkenwell disappear, Beatrice is uneasy. Their would-be benefactor claims they were witches, sacrificed by Satan for his demonic misdeeds. But Beatrice is sure something much darker than witchcraft is at play....

this was very descriptive, I was transported to the era and setting of the story as if I was watching a movie in IMAX. Masterton is just that good. great non-supernatural tale from the master of fiction. I wish there where more tales of the Widow Scarlett. the guy ranks with Stephen King and others of his ilk. would recommend.

The rural town of Old Hickory. Tennessee was a quiet, picturesque community...until the O'Sheas came to town. Becoming the new proprietors of the town's only funeral parlor, with the help of their charming patriarch, Square McManus, the Irish family was wholeheartedly accepted by the local town folk. The thing began to happen. Strange things...horrible, unspeakable things...in the dead of night. The sighting of wolfish beasts congregating around an open grave in the town cemetery.

has to be the best werewolf story, hands down, I've read/heard. I was picturing it as a long movie or a miniseries in HBO or SHOWTIME. someone should produce it as such and pitch it to the cable companies and get this made!

One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a bundle of rags floating in the Blackwater River. It is the bloated body of Father Heaney. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the marks of garrotting wire. Worse still, he has been castrated. When a second priest is found murdered, his body bruised and beaten and the same savage wound hidden beneath his soutane, Detective Inspector Katie Maguire finds evidence of a sinister cover-up at St Joseph's Orphanage.

Masterton is the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time). he's been my favorite (or at least one of) writer in the horror genre, even though this story has no supernatural element in it like his other stories. I whole heartedly recommend it to anybody.

at first, as I was reading, I was thinking, ''why did I buy this book'', but later on as I was getting near the end, I was starting to enjoy it. started caring about the remaining characters, and it had a satisfying ending. yes, the story was outrageous, but, if you keep reading, it should win you over. I'd recommend it to only the lovers of fantasy and horror, though.

at first, I was disappointed that this was a non supernatural story by graham because I chose this story because I recognize the character of Katie Maguire from White Bones, a horror novel by Graham, but as I was getting into the story I was pleasantly surprise how I was swept up and intrigue by this crime drama series. would recommend to anyone. 5 stars! Masterton remains one of my all time favorite fiction authors.

This statement was true when H. P. Lovecraft first wrote it at the beginning of the twentieth century, and it remains true at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The only thing that has changed is what is unknown. With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint. But this light creates its own shadows. The Best Horror of the Year, edited by Ellen Datlow, chronicles these shifting shadows.

I like the narrator. He suit the stories. The last story could have been a Movie. Very sweeping in it's scope. I've read Hodge's work before.
