Review:

Praise for David Chandler [who also writes as David Wellington]:`Wellington is a vivid storyteller, whether describing gruesome attacks, expressing the subtle attraction between man and woman, or chronicling the life of a troubled teen.' - Associated Press`Terrific; a literate, smartly constructed page-turner. . . Wellington again proves himself as one of the very best authors of contemporary horror fiction.' - Bookgasm.com`The taut narrative never slackens, providing thrilling entertainment for readers who like their horror raw and bloody.' - Publishers Weekly
