This is a good book. The end has a twist that I did not expect. There are definitely NO hollywood endings in a Bentley Little book. His books are easy to read, but are engaging and entertaining. I recommend this book. But do note that his content is "adult" at times, so this book is NOT for pre-teens or teens who aren't allowed to read books with violence, language, sexual content or occult-religious content.

I was disappointed with this book. I have enjoyed most of Bentley Little's books, but this one was just a little too "out there" - even for Bentley! Some of the scenes were disturbing to the point of being sick and just plain disgusting. It started out with typical Little suspense and horror and went downhill from there. Not a Bentley Little book I would recommend.

For those not familiar with Little's horror novels, a family of five visit a desert resort for some R & R. First, things feel/seem out of place, then strange history come to light. Horrible and grotesque events happen after that, then a huge bloody finale. For Bentley Little fans, this is reminiscent of The Association, but with a twist/unexpected ending.

In this very slow drawn out book, Little introduces us to his main characters, the Lowell Thurman family, mom, dad and three boys. Deciding they could afford the winter rates at the high end Reata Resort of Arizona, they pack the family off for a week of fun in the sun. Strange encounters and less then family atmosphere makes the Thurman's and other guest's question what is truly going on here.

The hotel has a strange mind mend on those staying there, they forget, they hallucinate, they become highly sexual, they become barbaric. But leave it to a 13 year old boy to find the answer and save the day.

By the end of this really horrible book I was repulsed. For a thriller it was even further out there than most. Too many barbaric scenes that had no point; and in turn made this book a joke. No need to read this author again.

I used to like Bentley Little but the last few I've tried to read I just don't get far with them and mostly because he is so filthy, language, sex, depraved, I like a good horror story but his books are just too sick and I'd hate to think of what some people can get in their minds after reading things his writes.

This book was very interesting. The whole book keeps you on the edge of your seat and is hard to put down

I liked the book, however the ending just kind of whimped out like Bentley just wanted to stop writing. It was a little dissappointing, however, I do not regret reading it. Kept me going for a few days! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick summer read.
