Publisher's Summary

The Woman is the powerful story of the last survivor of a feral tribe of cannibals who have been terrorizing the East Coast - from Maine into Canada - for years now. Badly wounded in a battle with police, a woman takes refuge in a cave overlooking the sea. Christopher Cleek is a slick, amoral - and unstable - country lawyer who, out hunting one day, sees her bathing in a stream. Fascinated, he follows her to her cave.

Cleek has many dark secrets and to these he'll add another. He will capture her, lock in his fruit cellar, in order to tame her, civilize her. To this end, he'll enlist his long-suffering wife Belle, his teenage son, Brian, and daughter, Peg, and even his little girl, Darlin', to aid him. So the question soon becomes: who is more savage? The hunter or the game?

Sex! Violence! Incest! S&M! Abuse! Sexploitation!

This is a unique and deeply disturbing book about the consequences of messing with mother nature and all of her wonderful children. There's a very important lesson to be learned from this insightful book.

It's like the movie "Falling Down" set deep in the forest, with a female protagonist who uses her other attributes to achieve her goal of getting back at a world that's beaten her down.

Although disturbing, I enjoyed it greatly and was happier for having read it.

Horror, Jack Ketchum Style

Like most good Horror stories, this gets creepier as it goes along for a finale, with several cool twists. It is book three in a series, but it is not necessary to have read the other two books. It is interesting to see who the bad guys are and who the good guys are. The book does involve rape, torture and incest. It was entertaining throughout and appealed to my sophomoric intellect. If your a Jack Ketchum fan, you need to add this to your collection.

Great and Brutal Story

I will say I watched the movie long before I knew there was a book. The movie was raw and the book is even more so. I felt they were very close so I wasn't as excited to hear almost the same dialogue, but I still really enjoyed listening to the source material for the movie. If you haven't seen the movie do yourself a favor and watch it after you listen to the book. Was hoping that the book would be longer but glad it wasn't as I couldn't stop listening once I started, even knowing how it ends I was hooked and had to make it through in one sitting. This book is brutally dark, graphic, twisted and totally an awesome listen. Those familiar with Ketchum's work will know exactly what you are instore for, those who are not just be warned about the graphic nature of this book. Either way, sit back, listen, and enjoy. Chet Williamson, as always, did a great job with the narration. I loved his character voices and the overall ambiance he adds to the story. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

A perfect story.

A great mix of violence and sexuality without going overboard on either. Daddy isn't well!

She is woman, hear her roar!

Another Jack Ketchum Lucky McKee masterpiece in horror! Revealing anything about the plot would spoil it for the reader. Just know that it is not for the faint of heart. Chet Williamson’s narration chillingly brings to life each of the characters. I will definitely be looking for other books narrated by him.

Modern Horror Classic Superbly Narrated

One of my absolute favourite modern horror novels brilliantly brought to life by the excellent Chet Williamson. The storyline is relatively straightforward to start with, but builds to an intense and surprising climax. Chet Williamson expertly switches between characters but truly excels with the sinister main character, Christopher Cleek. This is an audiobook I'll definitely revisit.
