Out of the Night The strangers came under cover of darkness and camped high on the hill just west of town Then the deaths began horrible savage, beyond comprehension one every night for five nights When two young boys disappeared, the enraged townsfolk of Ravina swept up the cemetery hill, a dark vengeful mass knowing neither pity nor remorse only the terrible need to shed blood for blood In their wake, they left six grim shadows hanging from a gnarled oak treeA century later, the cemetery still stands atop the hill The mortuary is presided over by the Horrcove twins, wizened old men who rarely see the light of day And death has returned to Ravina, California A series of grotesque murders committed at night has the town in the grip of terror Only one man famed archeologist Martin Larchmont suspects the truth His convictions are looked upon as the ravings of a crazy old man, yet as the murders continue, only Larchmont can save the town He joins forces with Sheriff Henry Sutton, once a non believer, now driven by his own desire for revenge Together, they must fight against the consuming evil that threatens to engulf them all This book is a turn of the page, the story is interesting and fast paced, and some passages of the book made me think twice before turning off the lamp of the night It is good to find a good horror book since it is a difficult genre It only has a minor setback with respect to the dialogues that at some point felt flat or beaten Definitevely a must read if you enjoy horror I loved this author since I read Monastery, its tood bad he only wrote 4 books that i know of.

This was a great Book Love the way It keeps your interest straight through. Yet another supernatural evil in small town type story that I can t seem to get enough of, complete with your standard horror fiction stereotypes who must band together to defeat it My rating doesn t reflect the fact that I actually really enjoyed this for the most part, but unfortunately it all became just a bit too over the top andwelllet s just say silly Here s the basic setup A series of gruesome, inexplicable murders have been happening in the small California town of Ravina, mo Yet another supernatural evil in small town type story that I can t seem to get enough of, complete with your standard horror fiction stereotypes who must band together to defeat it My rating doesn t reflect the fact that I actually really enjoyed this for the most part, but unfortunately it all became just a bit too over the top andwelllet s just say silly Here s the basic setup A series of gruesome, inexplicable murders have been happening in the small California town of Ravina, mostly taking place in and around the local cemetery that s situated on top of a giant hill overlooking the town The old local archaeologist, Martin Larchmont, of course knows a thing or two about the town s forgotten, unsavory history of mysterious, seemingly supernaturally influenced deaths, and must convince his former student and the town sheriff that an ancient and powerful evil has returned They re both highly skeptical, but as the death toll and sightings of the animated dead rises, they soon have no choice but to believe, and try to combat the burgeoning threat.Pretty typical, but what initially elevates this slightly above most midlist mass markets of the era namely a relatively tight pace and a handful of genuinely creepy moments soon descends into pure ridiculousness by story s end I pretty much lost interest during the latter chapters, but the first 2 3 make up for it somewhat, despite the cardboard characters and standard issue plot It s actually a rather fun read if you re in the mood for some mindless, pulpy horror 3.0 Stars
