Sheriff Louis Gilbert presides over the small town of Julian, high in the mountains and surrounded by apple orchards and forest. When he stumbles onto a murder unlike anything he has seen, Sheriff Gilbert spirals into a strange world that while new to him, has existed since before the very foundation of America - a world of horrific transformation and ancient demonic power.
Struggling to survive amongst horrendous dreams and odd newcomers to his quiet town, Sheriff Gilbert attempts desperately to slow his descent into madness. Is it possible to fight an enemy you do not know? Will he understand his enemy before it's too late? Once the enemy takes hold, will he want to fight at all?
Solid if not a little predictable. This is my second Ninness story and I now feel qualified to say he's a decent horror writer. Narration was excellent. Look forward to more of Mr. Ninness's stories.
Ninness has caught my attention as of late, and I have been "marathonning" through his collection. Of the four I have listened to up to this point, I'd have to say that this one is my favorite. If you like supernatural short stories, give this one a go. As a matter of fact, give any of his stories a listen. Not bad at all for the price.
