Book Description


Tor: NY 1993 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

A fox in a leg-hold trap may gnaw off its own foot to escape...rats in a too-small cage will devour the weakest members of the pack to ensure survival of the strongest...a group of humans, trapped like animals will sacrifice anything - or anyone - to gain their freedom.... Imagine Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None: a small group of people trapped in an isolated place, disappearing one by one, prey to all the stresses and strains of being hunted. Add Charles Grant's proven skill with suspense and his ability to fathom and display the inner workings of the human heart and mind. The result is Raven, a gripping, fast-paced thriller that begins in a familiar classic American setting - a roadside motel and restaurant - and drives, without pause to an unexpected and startling conclusion. A late-winter blizzard has closed the road beside Maclaren's Food and Lodging. The staff of three - Neil Maclaren, former cop turned motel-keeper Julia Sanders, as capable handling trouble as she is mixing drinks Willie Ennin, whose fondness for knives makes him a superb cook - prepare to entertain their few customers through a long winter night, unaware that they are being watched. The customers are a motley crew. Three locals: Nester Brandt, the towns greying curmudgeon and a pair of star-crossed lovers, Ken Havvick and Trish Avery. Three strangers: Hugh Davies, fast-rising star of all-night talk-radio and Ceil and Mandy, two women he claims are his sisters. They all have secrets, secrets which have attracted the watcher. Nester Brandt is the first to die, gunned down outside the restaurant by a silent man in a long black coat, a man whose pitiless gaze is as fixed and glittering as a raven's. Nester's death is only the beginning as this gathering of strangers becomes first prey, then hunters. They have learned too much about each other in a single snow-filled night. Like rats caught in a trap...
