What a brilliant ride through hell and beyond. From start to finish I was in the Everglades, fighting for my life. The description of people and places was so vivid, I could smell the rotting vegetation, and the people.
Jeff Hays is a brilliant narrator, the way he portrays the people's voices is fantastic. I had to keep reminding myself it was just one person, and not a cast of players.
I am going camping in the wilderness for a week, starting tomorrow. I really wish I had kept this audio until I got back. I am going to be jumping at every cracked twig, and every screech of a wild animal.
Mr Menapace, I think you are a brilliant author, but I will not be reading or listening to any of your books until I am back home safely. I can't wait.

From the second I started this I was hooked! From it's creepy swamp setting to it's psychotic characters, this is a must read. I devoured this and listened to it in a day, I just couldn't take out my ear phones!!
I'm not going to say anything about the plot because it's easily spoiled but I will say that it was so fast paced and intense. From the very first page you are swept up into a thrilling and sinister book and one you won't want to end.
The characters were fantastic. Its really hard to talk about them because this is the type of book where you are better off knowing nothing about it! Suffice it to say that this author can create some twisted people!! Lol.
I'm having a tough time trying to write an in depth review because, as I said, you are better off knowing nothing because you will enjoy it more. Everything about this was amazing and there was literally nothing I didn't like. It's a tense and twisted read but one you will love. I am definitely checking out more by this author because if this is anything to go by then I'm sold!
Jeff Hays was fan-freakin-tastic!! His voices and tones were perfect. He was chilling as the Uncle and gave me shivers!! He portrayed that family amazingly and really brought to life the terror the other people had. Go check out his work, you won't be disappointed!!

I recieved this book as a gift and didn't really know what to expect. I am so glad I listened. It has fast become one of my favourite audio books and is the best I've listened to since 'The Martian'.
The story is gripping and compelling, I didn't want to stop listening. But the real star is the narrator Jeff Hays, whose work I've never heard before. His character voices are incredible, and his timing perfect. Clearly alot of work has gone into the production of this book, and it shows. I will definitely seek out more books by both this author, and reader.
