While I love thick books I was a little concerned when I pulled this one off the shelf but it immediately grabbed and held my attention to the very last page. McCammon writes a compelling novel about fear and crowd mentality, mortality, the interplay of distinct personalities and love without becoming mawkish or boring. His protagonists are fully realized making me wonder what they're doing even after the book is done while secondary characters have enough personality quirks to make them interesting as well; I felt I got to know this community while reading about it. The plot moves right along with well planned twists, red herrings and period authenticity. A very good read.
Like Sherlock Holmes? Like historical fiction? Matthew Corbett investigates murders and supernatural occurrences in 1699 America. The sequels--especially Mr. Slaughter are even better.
