This is the last book in the trilogy. Children have disappeared, town riots and the FBI are on the job. Plenty of suspense and drama.
The narrator was great in all 3 books.The characters were well portrayed.

" Daniel Carter was murdered lat night"
Jake Urry's sinister narration could make the reading of a telephone directory sound like something by Lovecraft - and this is no telephone listing. The third in the series about Copper Tibet and the fine folks of Melington, the ongoing story is interspersed with FBI interview reports, which, by their very normalcy, further add to the otherworldliness of the rest of the text. So many folks seem to have disappeared following the riots in the town and the FBI need to question them. More children are missing, too. Alan Carter knows that only he can stop Tibet and his companion, the Lady in Red.
This is a story which creeps into one's head, prompting primal fears of darkness and hands emerging to grab ankles. The narration enhances the written word, leaving an unease even after the main book is concluded, a feeling increased with the excellent bonus chapters which follow.
So would I recommend this book to a friend? It could, just, be read as a stand alone but that would certainly lack the fine character building from the previous two volumes. Ideally, the whole series should be read in sequence. And any friend might not like me at the end if they are of an already nervous disposition. But for the brave, yes, recommended.
