Publisher Description

A brutal killer lurks near Hyde River in the Pacific Northwest. When wildlife biologist Steve Benson is called in to investigate the latest murder, he discovers that the victim is his brother. But why are the terrorized townspeople silent—and unwilling to help?

Something evil is at work in Hyde River, an isolated mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Under the cover of darkness, a predator strikes without warning—taking life in the most chilling and savage fashion.

The community of Hyde River watches in terror as residents suddenly vanish. Yet, the more locals are pressed for information, the more they close ranks, sworn to secrecy by their forefathers’ hidden sins.

Only when Hyde River’s secrets are exposed is the true extent of the danger fully revealed. What the town discovers is something far more deadly than anything they’d imagined. Something that doesn’t just stalk its victims—it has the power to turn hearts black with decay as it slowly fills their souls with darkness.

    " This is my favorite Frank Peretti book. It is full of suspense and was such a page turner that I read it in like two days.Peretti painted such a clear picture of events, people and other important elements of the story. That I can almost hear the creature walking through the woods. Great story. "

    " I have read this book at least 3 or 4 times. Even though I know the ending, it's still fun to go through all the discovery again. It is a bit frightening so if you scare easily, this probably isn't a book that you should read. This is definitely a favorite of mine from Peretti's work. "

    " I read this book as a teenager and thought it was great back then, but now (I remember the story fairly well, still) I see it as a toned down horror story written by a Christian author. For me, once was enough. "

    " Oo! One of the first books I ever read! It is a wonderful book, I recommend it to any and all. However there are some parts that truly do not need to be occupying this piece of literature, but besides that this book is wonderful. "

    " Interesting book. A little slow at times, but in the end it made me think about how sin can eat away at us until we self-destruct. And I liked the dragon as the embodiment of sin. I would recommend this book. "
