Abel Latham is the scourge of Griswold, a deathly quiet town populated by the undead. Abel stalks the hapless victims who stumble onto his unholy ground before torturing them to death. The police rarely notice who's missing until two brothers disappear and the only clues are the boys' abandoned trucks and blood. Lots of blood.
Though shaken by the gruesome details of Abel's depraved life and dreadful crimes, Shane knows his new job is to end Latham's reign of terror and his vengeance for blood. As Shane hunts his ghostly mark, he prays he won't be the next grisly artifact found in Griswold Forest!

Enjoyed it very much! No struggle to get through. A great sequel to the others in the series! Can be done as a standalone but I would recommend them in order. Great sequel with the ending for more. Keeping it spooky!

Here's me thinking that The Lighthouse was Shane's toughest job yet, but it's nothing compared to this!! Shane and his girlfriend decide to take a break by visiting an old New England town. They have heard the gossip, "The legend of Abel Latham" but decide to go see anyway. What starts out as a hike, soon becomes a matter of life and death!
This has to be the absolute baddest ghost I've read so far!! Abel Latham enjoys torturing his victims and even keeps part of them in his "lair". He let's his victims go in the woods and then huts them down. When Shane comes to Griswald, he is confronted with the ghost of a boy and his dog. They explain who Abel is and that there is no escape. The town is not only home to Abel, but also to his many, many victims.
Ron Ripley has never failed to deliver anything other than an incredibly scary and addicting read. This one is a lot bloodier, a lot messier, a lot scarier and a lot sadder than the previous two. Shane has to deal with an egotistical and insane ghostly serial killer, but also his two "best friends". I really thought that Shane wasn't going to come out on top this time, and truth be told, he doesn't, but I'm not going to say in what way because it's a spoiler ;)
In all, this was such a scary read. It gave me plenty of chills and spooked me a lot. The plot was well done and well written and I devoured the book. I loved how the author made a reference to his other series too, (which I really need to catch up on because it seems like something major happened in it!!) . Anyway, a suspenseful, creepy, fast paced and exciting read, this series is a must read!! I can't wait to see what this author comes up with next.
Again, Thom Bowers brings this book to life. He really brings the atmosphere and spookiness alive and knows how to tell the story properly. I highly recommend you check him out.
