Description

A telephone ringing in the dead of night signals the beginning of a journey into fear as MaryAnne Carpenter hears the shocking news: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned and dependent on her. Even as MaryAnne rushes to embrace her young charge the disturbing questions mount. Was it a tragic mishap that took their lives - or murder? As winter closes in on the majestic ranch where the young family lives, the darkness and danger of nature and the unimaginable evil around them seem to work in tandem. An insatiable and brutal killer is closer than they could ever have imagined.

Professional reviews

"What is the truth about recently orphaned Joey Wilkenson's strange behavior and the increasing number of gruesomely butchered bodies turning up in Sugarloaf, Idaho? The listener who appreciates a leisurely developed work of psychological terror will be rewarded by John Saul's methodical tightening of the thumbscrew. David Regal's serious reading captures the somber mood needed for a work that is less menacing in print. Regal's vocal changes are very good for this mixture of ages and sexes, and one of his characters is unintentionally hilarious. Technically, the recording level is superior, and the cover of the cassette case is much more enticing than the book jacket. E.E.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
