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!

I haven't felt as if I've had a favorite author since John Steinbeck. Allen Leverone is now right at the top of my list of preferred writers. After reading this book, I can't wait to read the rest in the series as well as the rest of Mr. Leverone's tomes. I literally could not put the book down until I had finished it. Fortunately I am retired and can stay up until 4:00 in the morning to do so!

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Read2Review January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is set in a small town in northern Maine. The brand new police chief finds himself in-over-his-head very quickly when a series of attacks rocks the community. At first, a dog is attacked by what seems like a wild animal, then a man suddenly disappears while shoveling his driveway, leaving behind nothing but large amounts of blood. It soon becomes clear that the attacks are not from any animal but, rather impossibly, a human. The new sheriff~along with a young woman on his police force and a ridiculed and discredited professor from a neighboring town~embark on a dangerous and interesting mission to hunt down this "person" and stop him/her before any more murders can take place.

My interest was kept during the entire book. I was able to predict the "person" that killing people, but that didn't take away from the story for me. Honestly, I had to keep reminding myself that this wasn't Stephen King. Maybe it was the Maine setting, but Allan Leverone had a very good writing style that almost bled mystery and danger. I am sure I will be reading more from him!

I gave this book 4 stars!

Mike McMahon left his job as a Policeman in Revere, Massachusetts and took up the position as Police Chief in Paskagankee, Maine hoping to get his life back on track. He figured in a small town where there wasn't much going on he could do just that. With his partner rookie cop Sharon Dupont. They must battle an ancient evil with the help of Professor Kenneth Dye; who has become a recluse due to being labeled a fraud.A great horror story in a small backwood town that is sure to get your attention!
