I had requested this audiobook because I am familiar with the author, and have enjoyed his books in the past. I personally don't think this one qualifies as a "Horror" novel, it is more like a scary mystery! This book will not scare you - unless you are about 6 or 7, what it does impart is sense of urgency to find out who is who, who is good, and who is bad.

The setting (Florida everglades /swamp) helps convey a sense of forboding as you know there are alligators, crocodiles, snakes, and other creepy/crawly things. I think that in another author's hands this book would not have been as enjoyable, so "Hats off to Saul"

I recommend this book to "mystery/thriller" fans for the fact that it holds your attention, there is a lot of suspence, with a gripping plotline.

It's a good way to pass a 3 hour commute (exactly what I needed for 1 day)
