Book Description

An isolated village, remote and vulnerable.
A series of brutal murders.
And a vengeful spirit born of tragedy, reawakened after a centuries-old massacre.
Three distinctly different people must come together, racing against time and their own personal demons in a desperate attempt to stop an unstoppable killer and save their town.

Welcome to Paskagankee, Maine. You may not survive the visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! February 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the story of a small town rocked by the most unimaginable horror. Mike McMahon has left his job as a Policeman in Revere, Massachusetts after a tragedy knocked him for six. He takes up the position as Police Chief in Paskagankee, Maine hoping to get his life back on track. In his first few days as Chief the town is rocked by two horrific murders. Along with rookie cop, Sharon Dupont and ridiculed Professor Kenneth Dye, they must come together to solve the mystery and save the town from a vengeful entity bent on revenge.

I started this with a feeling of great excitement and expectation as I have read this authors work before and have come to enjoy his way of storytelling. I was not disappointed.From a fairly quiet beginning everything suddenly exploded and I was taken on the mother of all rides. The pace was fast and and unrelenting and the storytelling slick and to the point. The story mixed thriller with outright horror and some scenes were quite graphic. Mike McMahon shines as the slightly battered chief going from one nightmare seemingly into another. I loved the way the author seemed to take me in one direction at the beginning only to throw a curveball about half way through that I never saw coming. The authors use of Native American legends was also a good point of interest.

I totally recommend this and I cannot wait until the next one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspend Reality March 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up the book about a small town--and suddenly I was transported there. I was scared and afraid to walk out into the dark alone. What was it that was terrorizing this small town? Could the odd professor really have the answer? This novel suspends reality for a time and takes you on a journey where the spiritual has become real--where the world is not as it seems.

Jump in for a thrill ride. And hang on. Another winner for Allan Leverone!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Rather Be At The Beach: Reviews May 21, 2012
By Vicki
Format:Kindle Edition
I love scary, and this book was scary to the extreme. It had me afraid to open the door to let the dog out at 2:00 am. I was looking over my shoulder while I was reading and even when I closed the book and watched tv.

If you like scary, read this book! I can't wait for the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shades of Stephen King May 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It has been a while since I have read what I consider a true horror story, and this is definitely one of them. It gave me the feelings that I had as a teenager reading some of my first Stephen King novels - whether it was the setting in Maine or the aspect of the story that was such horror that it was beyond impossible. I truly enjoyed it and devoured it in one day.

Mike McMahon has taken over as chief of police, and partners with rookie cop Sharon Dupont. He had chosen her to learn the ropes of this small town because since she was the newest on the force that she would be more willing to show him the ropes without any hassle. He didn't expect to be attracted to her as well.

After a couple of gruesome murders, they are contacted by a college professor who has spent his life researching Native American tribes and customs and he thinks that there is an old Indian curse that has been reawakened in Paskagankee. With no other leads to follow, they take a chance on him.

If you are a fan of horror stories, definitely add this one to your reading list. Even though we live in a suburban neighborhood, and not a heavily forested area like Northern Maine, it had me looking over my shoulder at our outside doors with every creak that I heard!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't rubber stamp every book with five stars, but this is a great read. A police thriller with paranormal overtones, what's not to like? I have just started Revenant - what a great title - do ya get I like series? And Native Americans are part of my heritage. Win, win.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paskagankee is one scary little town August 21, 2012
By Pixie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first book by Allan Leverone, I knew I would love it when in the beginning pages he mentions The Yankees and New Jersey.. HOWEVER this book takes place in Paskagankee Maine a normally quiet small town .. Our Heroes "Mike McMahon" (who takes the job as Police Chief after a HORRIFIC shooting accident at his last police job where a child is killed)rookie cop, "Sharon Dupont" (who has quite a past in our sleepy town but got herself together and became a cop) and our most unlikely hero Professor Kenneth Dye (who has been totally outcast in the academic world as a major nut case in his research and book on The Indian Tribe that is the crux of this story).. These three people come together to fight an entity that has come back after hundreds of years to seek revenge for a crime committed against her and her infant child and we all know how incredibly angry we Moms can get if you hurt our child, Its Murder,The Paranormal, Budding Romance and how far you would go out of your realm of beliefs to solve a murder and protect "Your Town" Amazingly written and you can be sure I will be reading more of Allan's books.. so well done.. I didn't want to put it down and then when I saw the story will continue I actually "Whooped" out loud tehehe I give this Book 5 shivers.. LOVED it!!
