Publisher's Summary

Something sinister is at work in Hyde River, an isolated old mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Under the cover of darkness, it strikes without warning. The latest victim, nature photographer Cliff Benson, was brutally killed while camping in the mountains. When the sheriff closes the case, chalking it up to the work of a rogue bear, Cliff's brother Steve refuses to let the matter drop. Attractive auburn-haired Sheriff's Deputy Tracy Ellis isn't convinced either. And when another person turns up missing, she joins Steve in his search for the truth. But the harder Steve presses the townsfolk for information, the more they close the ranks, as if sworn to secrecy. Steve and Tracy are drawn closer to each other and to the town's terrible secret. What they discover is a predator more terrifying than anything they had imagined and a town in the grip of unspeakable evil.

The Oath

This is a fast moving novel and satisfies my love being a Christian and of history and mystery stories. I listened to it in one session whilst at my sewing machine.

Frank Peretti builds up the tension and his characters and I was swept along with the story. It comes to a spine chilling yet glorious end. I thought Joseph Campanella was brilliant as the narrator.

I shall be looking out for more Peretti audio books.
