This book started out as a very good story and it just got stranger and stranger. While I did enjoy the book, I could have wished that the writer had kept the story a little less bizarre.
I found this story to be very scary.
It all started out in the jungle with a "thing" killing soldiers, almost like the movie Predator with Arnold. Great atmosphere descriptions, and of the horrors. Then... BAM... we wind up in a city setting and it becomes a crime drama. A reviewer says this novel is like the works of Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston. Wrong. I wish the next reader best of luck trying to read this book all the way through.
This author's debut novel is exciting if a bit long winded! Ok Ok he could have cut it down a hundred pages or more but its all good. He starts off with WWII landing thst is excellent on the shores of Pacific Island. There they get attacked by the japanese, and something else!! What follows is a tale about something evil that is brought back from the island and may cause world wide chaos if not put down!! The author flashes back and forth from 1943 to present day Boston where detectives are investigating a series of strange and grisly murders. A really good and different story!!
