Frank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of David Morrell's acclaimed Creepers, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death. To save himself and the woman he loves, he must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obsession for unearthing the past. But sometimes the past is buried for a reason.

Scavenger is a brilliant, frightening hunter-hunted tale that layers modern technology over the dusty artifacts of earlier times. The result is a surreal palimpsest, one that contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the game’s clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger.

Listener Opinions

    " Not very good. Crapper than the Creepers book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 2/18/2014

    " HB -- it starts with confusion but the author unravels an adventure -- good reading so far. It is a scavenger hunt, fast and an adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pamela | 2/18/2014

    " {audio version} This just didn't do much for me. It felt rushed in the beginning - like, "let me throw some people at you and jump right into the plot without giving you a chance to get to know the characters." It didn't build up at all - it seemed like I was just thrown in the middle of it. Additionally, I've always said that a narrator can make or break a book for me...and this guy was not my favorite to listen to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Copley | 1/3/2014

    " This book is excellent. It grabs you from the very beginning and never lets you down until the very end. Even though the main characters are from "Creepers," it is not necessary to read Creepers before reading Scavernger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 12/31/2013

    " Ahh, sequelitis... Not nearly as good as Creepers. The scavenger hunt aspects were interesting, but the split narrative took away from the story I think. I really am not a fan of the lets tell a little of this story, and then skip back to telling the other story style. The ending was extremely lame, although the climax was pretty cool. The Sepulchre of Worldly Desires was just plain creepy. The narrator of the book on cd wasn't very good, so that may have effected my feelings and rating. Probably would have been better had I read the book instead of listened to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kel | 12/31/2013

    " More predictable than "Creepers" but still very entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 12/16/2013

    " I liked the usage of geocaching in the book. It was a decent book and stands up to what is coming on the market right now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 10/24/2013

    " Another excellent, fast-paced, gripping novel by David Morrell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kw | 10/20/2013

    " Sort of creepy and quite a stretch in some ways, but an enjoyable read, nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 9/14/2013

    " Trey and I are starting this audio book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Traci Haley | 8/14/2013

    " Like its predecessor, Creepers, David Morrell's Scavenger ALMOST hits the mark and becomes a great horror novel... but not quite. I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Troianeca | 6/8/2013

    " thrilling and the scenes are really detailed and superior "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 5/24/2013

    " A fast moving story, easy reading. I have read some of his earlier novels and enjoyed them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/30/2013

    " Listened to on CD. Enjoyable; interesting concept involving time capsules and live gaming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dgk72 | 1/19/2013

    " nice follow-up to 'Creepers" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 12/14/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 2/9/2012

    " This was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Definitely worth reading! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey Lucassen | 11/21/2011

    " I like this book a lot its kinda ugh but lord does it leave you wanting to know what happens i had a hard time puttin it down when i had to do somethin lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 10/14/2011

    " Excellent; two survivors from the Creepers book are tricked into participating in a life-and-death "game" tied to time capsules and modern technology "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skele | 8/29/2011

    " It was plain OK. The story went dragging too much, atleast for my liking "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stu | 8/7/2011

    " Interesting book. I enjoyed it, but the reservoir had Water Moccasin's in it which would be impossible. They are a southern species and couldn't survive in the location of the reservoir. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 6/12/2011

    " pretty good book, fast-paced, good action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aphee | 5/2/2011

    " I think this book have a quite complicated story as the english level for world teenagers is high..
    But, it's still, can cut your nerves~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 3/27/2011

    " A fast moving story, easy reading. I have read some of his earlier novels and enjoyed them. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily | 2/27/2011

    " I knew going into it that it wasn't going to be great but I still had to try. Again, clever enough concept, just nothing amazing. A litte too far out there as far as a realistic situation goes and he tried to through some "philosophy" in there that was a bit of a stretch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 2/26/2011

    " Loved this book. It has influenced my life so much as I now partake in geocaching as a hobby & love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill1971 | 12/31/2010

    " I really liked the game aspect of it. Sort of like Saw where the characters have to complete missions and tasks. The time capsule part of it was very interesting as well. I will have to check out Creepers since this is the sequel to it. Although not reading the first book didn't leave me confused. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Johann | 11/22/2010

    " Definitely not one of his best. There are a few gaping plot-holes.[return]The time capsule discussions are fascinating, especially since there is one not 2Km from my home. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 10/2/2010

    " Good writing marred by a plot that reads too much like a script for a "thriller" movie that I've already seen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 9/26/2010

    " Enjoyable read. The excitement kept me wanting to read more. "
