I really enjoyed this. The story was suspenseful and original. It wasn't the most realistic book, but then, many classic horror novels aren't. true, the premise was a bit silly, but the story overall was a good one.
Rural Northumberland and legendary beast of the moors.
Not since Hound of the Baskervilles , have the Moors been used as a setting for an unusual predator.
Something is stalking the Northumberland moors. No one is sure exactly what it is, but something is slaughtering sheep and other livestock. There have been sightings of a big cat.....
Not Laws usual M.O. with horror? Outstanding read though. He continues to be one of my favorites!
Stephen Laws never disappoints with his stories. A ferocious animal on the loose stalking it's prey. Is this the devil?
Quick reading. Good story. Ending OK. I liked it.
Well, this was a rather silly book, but still entertaining. The picture on the cover attracted me because it is so similar to the panther from "Garfield in the Rough." I found the characters to be likable, but the plot on the whole was rather average. I would have liked more explanation about these Big Cats of the Moors. I think it would have rounded the story out a bit more and made it more enjoyable. One small thing that did put me off to the wrong start with this book was a really surprising editing mistake- "you're" means you are... "your" indicates possession. Kind of a shocking mistake to see in not only a published book, but so early into a book as well. Usually the first 50 pages are edited with a fine-tooth comb so as to not put people off... Still, it was a pretty fun book and certainly a fast read. I do not, however, see myself going to any trouble to find any of this author's other books.
Very good read that keeps your interest up all through the book!
