Publisher's Summary

Spirited from the dark jungles of Africa to a place in the american desert...

The evil soul of a witch doctor lives on in the body of Simon, the great jungle beast who leads his human followers - the Panther People - in their orgies of lust and blood. Now the innocent Martin family, George, Peg, and their beautiful daughter, Jenny, on vacation, will stumble upon this gruesome cult, trapped in a desert nightmare of terror and death - waiting. In the quiet wasteland, the sound of their own pulses will be all they can hear. 

But somewhere in the dark night, outside their lonely hotel room, there is something breathing. For once Simon has your scent - he will not stop until he tastes your warm, fresh blood....

Classic

I love 70s and 80s horror and this is a good example
If you enjoy old school horror with lots of gore sex and deranged family’s this is for you
Mike did a great job narrating and the voice effect was a nice touch

Weird and Totally Amazing

I've been a hot second since I've been so sucked into a book as I was with this one. 'Black Cat' starts out weird and only gets weirder from there. I absolutely loved how the (possible) paranormal happenings were interweaved with what I clearly recognized as our reality. The way Russo uses primitive lore and connects it to a group of average Americans was very satisfying. Mike Reaves delivers a fabulous performance. I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone who enjoys bizarre, action filled stories.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Black Cat

I tried several times but could not get through this book.It was just too much gore for me,and I can take a lot usually. Mike Reaves seemed to be a fine narrator. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

80's Horror B Movie greatness!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is definitely an homage to the old B horror movies and I loved every minute of it! There is tons of gore, gratuitous sex, messed up people... EVERYTHING you'd expect from a horror movie in the 80's. The narrator does a good job bringing the story to life. All in all, if you like this sort of thing (and are an adult), I would highly recommend this audio book. If not, I'd recommend avoiding it.

This audio was excellent! I can remember vaguely reading this story a long time ago, but any great details were lost from my mind. This story is thrilling, and suspenseful and keeps you enthralled. There are very graphic scenes of sex and violence, so it may not be for everybody.

The narrator is very very good. I very much enjoyed his telling of this classic suspenseful tale. He painted a very vivid picture in my mind with each character.

I give this story five of five stars for great story and great story telling!

Panther Voodoo

I thought the first part of the book a little boring with panther voodoo until they hit the desert. It is about George Martin, his wife Peg, and daughter Jenny who come in contact of the panther clan as well Tom when it got good. There are guts, gore and strong sexual situations in the book and wonder how Jessica got the panther (voodoo) skill. The ending left me wonder if another book was done concerning Jen and with Simon surviving but apparent not as originally written in 1980s. Favorite character was Tom. Overall did enjoy listening.

From Africa to the USA the Black Cat Brings Horror

A horror tale of many threads that eventually meet to create a terror filled conclusion. The black cat is real and yet has great mystical presence. The writer wonderfully weaves his story to lure us to a brilliant action and horror packed conclusion. The narration enhances the enjoyment of a master story teller on top form.
