Lock the doors, too. Friend of the blog J.A. Konrath has a new book on the way.
Writing under the pseudonym Jack Kilborn, Konrath has delivered a book that's unlike any of his previous novels. A straight horror/thriller novel, "Afraid" provides non-stop suspense without the usual laughs found in the "Jack Daniels" series. While humor is an integral part of the "Jack Daniels" books, it would be largely out of place in a book like "Afraid", and I didn't miss it.
The book is set in Safe Haven, Wisconsin, population 907. The only law enforcement is an aging sheriff who's closing in on retirement and no other full time police force. Unfortunately, trouble is coming to town.
A small group of Red-Ops soldiers (psychopathic murderers trained as military Special Forces) have landed in Safe Haven. Their training has programmed them to terrorize, isolate, annihilate. Now they're heading into town. A small group of civilians must come together to survive the hell that is sweeping through town.
"Afraid" is relentless and terrifying. If you're a fan of the previous Konrath books, you'll love "Afraid". If you haven't tried Konrath yet, you'll love "Afraid". See a theme, here?
