Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A "gripping and terrifying story...and one not to be missed" (Robert McCammon) from the acclaimed author of The Troop and The Deep !<br> <br> A trio of mismatched mercenaries--Micah Shughrue, Minerva Atwater, and Ebenzer Elkins, colloquially known as "the Englishman"--is hired by young Ellen Bellhaven for a deceptively simple task: check in on her nephew, who may have been taken against his will to a remote New Mexico backwoods settlement called Little Heaven, where a clandestine religious cult holds sway. But shortly after they arrive, things begin to turn ominous. There are stirrings in the woods and over the treetops--and above all else, the brooding shape of a monolith known as the Black Rock casts its terrible pall. Paranoia and distrust soon grip the settlement. Escape routes are gradually cut off as events spiral toward madness. Hell--or the closest thing to it--invades Little Heaven. All present here are now forced to take a stand and fight back, but whatever has cast its dark eye on Little Heaven is marshaling its power--and it wants them all...<br> <br> "A slow boil of unrelenting terror and inescapable consequences. Nick Cutter ups his game every time. Beautifully written--menace drips from every page." --Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author<br> <br> "A sprawling epic that can stand alongside the best of '80s King, Barker, and McCammon. Fun, nasty, smart, and scary, and in all the right places." --Paul Tremblay, acclaimed author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock
