Then a pretty young backpacker is picked up for a ride and disappears. When her remains are found in a ritual display of body parts, they wonder if the same killer is back, trying to raise an ancient being from the darkness.
Part cop thriller and horror, it was held together by the wise voice of Katie, who is undergoing a lot of background turmoil, the death of her young son and a husband whose world is falling apart. Still she keeps going - although she does make a few dubious decisions throughout the story, she comes across as a good complicated character.
I gave it a 5/5 because even though at times I was totally grossed out by the story, I was keen to dive into the book anytime I could. 5/5
