Good classic Saul storytelling, with all the gore and nastiness you would expect. Not for the weak of stomach.

Something sinister awaits the Spellmans. Something so hideous it seems not earthly, but spawned in hell. For here, long ago, amid placid rolling fields, a shadowymenace once stalked the innocent. Dormant, it waits-waits for summer's heat to shimmer over the valley in a suffocating wave;waits for the arrival of its perfect victim...
And now, with the dizzying descent of a nightmare, Karen's homecoming will be a confrontation with evil, as she struggles to protect her vulnerable daughters from a menace that seems to rise from the earth itself-a malign, preternatural force that must satisfy its gruesome thirst for its unsuspecting prey...
