Something sinister is at work in Hyde River, an isolated old mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Under the cover of darkness, it strikes without warning. The latest victim, nature photographer Cliff Benson, was brutally killed while camping in the mountains. When the sheriff closes the case, chalking it up to the work of a rogue bear, Cliff's brother Steve refuses to let the matter drop.

Attractive auburn-haired Sheriff's Deputy Tracy Ellis isn't convinced either. And when another person turns up missing, she joins Steve in his search for the truth. But the harder Steve presses the townsfolk for information, the more they close the ranks, as if sworn to secrecy.

Steve and Tracy are drawn closer to each other and to the town's terrible secret. What they discover is a predator more terrifying than anything they had imagined and a town in the grip of unspeakable evil. Download and start listening now!

    " Institutionalized religion gone wrong - again it's not religion that will save you from the fires of hell, but your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ "

    " The Oath is a christian fictional novel written by Frank E. Peretti. The Oath centers around a wild life bioligist who searches for the cause of his brother's death, whom was found in the forest with half his body missing, In and around a town called Hyde River. The main character at first believes that a grizzly is responsible for his brother's grizzzly death, but soon he comes to find the likely hood of a Grizzly being the killer less and less likely. He try's to find the answers in a town unwilling to give up it's dark secrets. It soon becomes obvious that Hyde River's inhabitant are afraid of something more than just a grizzly bear. This book has a very dark theme, the theme being that sin is a pet that will bite it's master and will grow to uncontrollabe proportions when tried to be kept secret. This book is a bit hard to get into. But once you have gotten into it you'll find it's a real page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/3/2014

    " long-winded, and slow moving in the middle. moves a bit more quickly in the beginning and end. If you can get through the unnecessary dry parts, you'll be in the home stretch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S.n. Blackmon | 1/25/2014

    " I would nominate it for the best piece of Christian fiction ever written. It is exactly what Christian fiction should be. It's extremely well written. It is appealing to both believers and non believers. It is a phenomenal witness tool. You can't put it down. And it's won souls to Christ, and shown people the true nature and consequences of their decisions. The best. "
