Book Description


See all titles by Frank Peretti.

In this long-awaited novel, Peretti (This Present Darkness; The Oath) tells the story of a young woman who disappears in the Idaho wilderness and the ensuing search for her. Policeman Reed Shelton and his wife, Rebecca ("Beck"), are on a no-frills wilderness hike when a strange being attacks them, and they are separated. Bloodied and shaken, Reed crawls back for help, thinking Beck is probably dead. But she's been kidnapped by a band of creatures that may embody what the people of back country Idaho tell their tall tales about. Or there may be another explanation: renegade researchers have been fiddling with DNA and have altered creatures into "monster" form. The monsters have escaped.

The author's prose is clear and crisp, with only a few lapses into Lovecraftian hyperbole: his description of the novel's almost mythical setting is rich and detailed without being overwritten and his characterization of the woman, Beck, and the very unusual creatures she encounters is compelling. Peretti successfully incorporates several contemporary detective drama/suspense thriller tropes; one of his main characters, for example, is a crime scene investigator, and welcome doses of forensic evidence and DNA analysis are thrown into the mix.
