Publisher's Summary

When you eliminate the impossible, the only thing left is the truth.

Black Oak Security is a crack team of private investigators led by brilliant, enigmatic Ethan Proctor. He takes on cases that range from the normal to the unaccountably bizarre. Now one of his people, Sloan Delaney, has disappeared during a weekend getaway in the Cumberland Mountains. The last message he left - on Proctor's answering machine - was a tortured scream for help.

Soon Proctor is heading into the Kentucky wilderness, following in Sloan's footsteps to a secluded backwoods motel where a dreadful mystery is buried. But the truth behind Sloan's disappearance is only the beginning. For whatever is roaming the hills has left an entire town cowering in fear. Something unspeakable, and too close to home.

Decent story, not written for audio

Decent story, not the best I've read from Grant, but a fun, dark mystery. My biggest issue is that the writing style doesn't translate well to audio, and I was confused many times as the scene shifted or conversations progressed without tags. The narrator does nothing with pauses or changed voices to remedy this.

great story

I'm really like this book and I'm looking forward to book 2. Very good character development and kept me on the edge of my seat. At times it was a bit confusing but made pretty good sense in the end. I recommend it, kind of a good old-fashioned ghost story
