Daniel Lawless is a bachelor detective who prefers shoes over people. What he once thought of as a gift to help him escape the constant torment of school bullies becomes a nightmare when he starts seeing visions of dead bodies, and the visions are real. Along with a local cop, the beautiful and young Sandra Jensen, they set out to try to stop an unstoppable monster from eating it’s way through the population of Modesto, California.

Everett Powers, you have written a masterpiece of thrilling horror! I immediately fell in love with Daniel Lawless (although a detective named Lawless made me roll my eyes, I’m used to it now). I knew I was going to love this book because of the last line in the second chapter:

“Modesto needed a Dirty Harry, a man of action who carried a big gun he wasn’t afraid to use, but what they got instead was Daniel Lawless, a man who carried a small gun he preferred not to use, a man who liked shoes.”

Everything about this story has made me very excited to continue on and I spent most of the weekend sneaking a few pages in whenever possible. Wow, just wow. Blown away.

On one hand I am sad that I’ve finished one of the best books I have read for a while, on the other hand if there had been much more action I may have had a heart attack! Somewhere I read that writers should avoid having too intense of action for too long. Everett pushed the envelope on this one. When it seemed too much was happening, day break would hit and everything slowed down again (Daylight is the monster's only weakness).

I loved this story, I loved the characters, I loved the monster, I loved the storyline. -- D. Ryan Leask, Author of “Counting Down The Storm”

A great read. Powers pulls you in with the first page, weaving a tale of terror that will grab you like a pit bull. I found it hard to stop reading. His characters are believable and he does a great job of showing the terror they feel.

Powers pulled off a great combination of horror and Sci-Fi with this book. I don’t know if that is what he was going for, but I do know that I loved this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves this genre, and even those that don't. -- Ken Hoss, Author of “Storm Rising”
