4.0 out of 5 stars I'M GOING HOME..., 9 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Disappearance (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a creepy little book, which relies more on suspense and the author's ability to make the banal seem horrific. The author eschews resorting to his usual bag of tricks and relies simply on pretty straightforward storytelling. The result is an absorbing story that is hardly the stuff of nightmares.

The focus is on a group of UCLA College students who decide to let loose and attend a festival in a fairly rural area. Shortly after they arrive, Joan, one of their numbers, disappears. When they return to UCLA and make their report to the police, they discover that UCLA has no record of Joan ever having enrolled at the university. Moreover, her roommate has also disappeared, as have Joan's parents.

Then, a clue, warning about Outsiders, surfaces, and strange looking folk dressed in peculiar, homemade clothing begin being sighted on campus, and when they do, trouble lies ahead. Yet, Joan's distraught boyfriend is determined to follow any clue, no matter where it may lead and no matter what evil lies ahead.

Although die hard fans of the author may be surprised at the lack of in-your-face horror in this book, most will still enjoy the story that the author skillfully weaves.
