I realy liked this book. it was very well written, the characters are like people i see in my home town every day, ha ha. the ending was very different from the usual bad guy gets his and everybody lives happily ever after stuff. I haven't seen the movie but i have a feeling i'll like the book better. i look foward to reading more from Jack Ketchum.

Did not like this book at all! If you want to read about drugs, being drunk, having sex with everyone, and filthy dirty language then this is the one. It first starts out with a murder but then it just gets so far off track and the story goes on and on about the killer about what a disgusting depraved lunatic he is, I didn't find any of the characters worth even thinking about they all are so stupid, it isn't much of a cop story and that takes away from the story alot, so if you want to read about a drugged, drunk lunatic then get this one.

I am a big big movie buff and I don't think there was ever a movie made like this--the only way would be if it is a 'b' grade movie that never made the big screen and is sitting on a shelf somewhere or being played on Encore.

Another good horror story by Jack Ketchum. I enjoyed the book a great deal, however it wasn't as exciting as I had expected it to be.

Another great Jack Ketchum suspense thriller. And as always, Ketchum throws in some unusual and awesome twists that the reader wouldn't expect from any other author...especially at the end of the book! This book is fast paced, graphic at times, keeps the reader on the edge, and doesn't disappoint.

Love Jack Ketchum and as Stephen King said, "He [Ketchum] is, quite simply, one of the best in the business."

It was the summer of 1965. Ray, Tim and Jennifer were just three teenage friends hanging out in the campgrounds, drinking a little. But Tim and Jennifer didn't know what their friend Ray had in mind. And if they'd known they wouldn't have thought he was serious. Then they saw what he did to the two firls at the neighboring campsite - and knew he was dead serious.
Four years later, the Sixties were drawing to a close. No one ever charged Ray with the murders in the campgrounds, but there was one cop determined to make him pay. Ray figured he was in the clear. Tim and Jennifer thought the worst was behind them, that the horrors were all in the past. They were wrong. The worst was yet to come.
