Great plot! I'd like to see Grey Porter & Elena Sturm together again.

McBride, author, builds his story a bit longer than I'd like & then dad blame it he doesn't answer the important questions : what species is the killer? How will the creature find family with her family gone? Very often McBride leaves the principal characters, you are avidly following, flat. No what now? If their ideals have changed what will they do now? I'll say one thing you can't just pick up one of his books, thinking you will just read a few pages before bed. His books are addicting darn it! I kid you not I feel their tendrils wrapping around my mind & I console myself mumbling five more minutes just five more minutes! The author manages to hit my uncomfortable zone in settings time & again, crawling through mud, feces of the homeless, urine, in the dead of winter YUK! I love how thorough his research is & the plots are never limp & lifeless. I'd love a sequel get Porter & Sturm on a job again. Looking for value for your buck you've found it with this author.
