Publisher's Summary

The town of Stillwater has a very unwelcome resident.

The town of Stillwater has been dying - the long and painful death of a town ravaged by floods and haunted by the ghosts of all who had lived there. Yet this most recent flood has brought something with it - a creature that nests among the good folks of Stillwater...and feeds off them. The children who haven't disappeared whisper the same word - "vampire". But they're wrong. What has come to Stillwater is something much more horrific.

Pretty good, but not great

The Narrows is another well written story of horror and suspense from Ron Malfi. The Narrows reads like a horror movie script, right down to throw away characters who only serve as sacrificial fodder for our mystery monster lurking in the shadows of darkness. While the characters are not as interesting as the ensemble of other Malfi books like December Park. The small town of Stillwater itself is presented almost as a character in its own right. Overall a pretty good read, that's not overly long and pretty straight forward. While not the same caliber story as December Park or The Night Parade, The Narrows is a dark ride engaging enough to make you want to see it through till it's climax. If you like horror story's set in small unassuming towns, with mysterious creatures and characters saddled with emotional baggage and past trauma, this book might be just what the doctor ordered.

Great story I hope it continues!

I was once told that the sign of a great story is when you are sad to see it end and boy is this one of them. Bravo for creating a monster that is both unique and describing it with such detail you could practically smell it’s breath.

Great horror book!

I’ve listened to 2 of Ronald Malfi’s books and they were both great. Very scary... reminded me of Stephen King’s book Salem’s Lot, but also different. Completely different kind of monster. I find that using children in horror books is always unsettling... but in a good way. It was the scariest book I’ve listened to in a long time. I recommend and I’m
buying more of his books!!!
