Publisher's Summary

A haunting tale of a missing girl that could only have come from the mind of Bram Stoker Award-winning author Bentley Little.  

The festival was intended as a getaway from UCLA for Gary, his girlfriend, Joan, and their friends. But soon after they arrive, Joan vanishes. Calls to her parents’ home yield only dead air. Her school records are gone. And there’s no evidence that Joan, or even her roommate, ever existed. Most disturbing of all is what they do find.   

Among Joan’s belongings is a prayer written on a small scroll. It’s a safeguard — and a warning — from something called The Outsiders. For Gary and his friends, it’s the only clue. Now, if they want to find out exactly what happened to Joan, they must follow it. But they may not like what they find....

didn't like narrator

narrator's inflection was so distracting. pitch was raised at the end of every sentence making everything blend together. Bentley Little's stories are always creepy and suspenseful but there wasn't one moment of that in this performance for me. Voice characterization was good - just wish the rest of it was as well.

He’s done better.

This is probably the worse Bentley Little book I’ve ever heard, which is disappointing because I’ve got a huge collection of them. It was boring, disjointed, and bland has hell. No weird stuff if you like his surreal horror just a watered down “The Hills Have Eyes”.


Don’t waste your time. Get ANY of his other books.

Not his best!

If I had read this title first I may not have ever read another of his books. This is the fourth of his books I have listened to band loved the first three! I thought the story line way to unbelievable and way to many inconsistencies. Great narration but I had a very heard time even getting any interest and was completely disinterested before I was at the half way point. Predictable ending but again to unrealistic for a non supernatural storyline. Just disappointed! almost didn't even decide to finish it.

Great story but the narration was distrust

I enjoyed this book, great story. However, the narrator’s lilting voice that made statements sound like questions was very distracting.

This rocks!

this was a good book, good plot good storyline, great action. the narrator did a great job. on a side note the Jews were slaves for 430 years in Egypt not 2000, just saying.
