Publisher's Summary

An ancient sin. A long forgotten oath. A town with a deadly secret.

Something evil is at work in Hyde River, an isolated mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. 

Under the cover of darkness, a predator strikes without warning - taking life in the most chilling and savage fashion. 

The community of Hyde River watches in terror as residents suddenly vanish. Yet, the more locals are pressed for information, the more they close ranks, sworn to secrecy by their forefathers’ hidden sins. 

Only when Hyde River’s secrets are exposed is the true extent of the danger fully revealed. What the town discovers is something far more deadly than anything they’d imagined. Something that doesn’t just stalk its victims, but has the power to turn hearts black with decay as it slowly fills their souls with darkness.

one of Frank Peretti best

I think this is my favorite Story by Frank Peretti. I love how he describe sin as a ooze seeping out of us and as a dragon seeking to destroy us.

A great picture of our deceptive sin nature

Loved the story and the narrator. The story paints quite a picture of our son and how it affects others around us.

Still to this dayy favorite book of all time.

This book was read to me as a child and I had completely forgotten about it. Then just like that there it was and a sure enough after reading the synopsis I knew it was the book I remembered. Most things I loved as a child Im not so enthused about as an adult. However in this case I love it more now than I did then. I understand it more. I cannot stress enough the fact that this book should be made into a movie or TV series.

Excellent reading of a classic

Always loved this book since I was a kid, and this is an excellent rendition of it. the narrator's performance is great, he sounds like the setting of the book. his character voices do a great job of making the characters come alive as distinct individuals without sounding contrived.
The story itself is, of course, great. An excellent example of how Christian fiction can still be thrilling and entertaining and not fall into the trap of being corny or even overly preachy. highly recommend this to anyone.
