I always look forward to the latest release from this author, so much so that any new release of his shoots straight to the top of my TBR list. This latest release did the same, and certainly disappoint.One of the main factors for being such a fan is that he takes a familiar concept, but brings something new.

While reading the book I was struck by a possible new measure for horror books - would it still be a good read with the horror elements removed? And in this case it would. The tale of Scott Draper and his last chance mining operation is an interesting tale in itself. The camaraderie of the characters (with certain exceptions) provides an excellent basis. The characters are well realised with contrasting personalities fitting together to make a greater whole. Not all the team are as richly drawn, and a couple of the lesser characters could maybe had a bit more history.

The horror element is masterly woven throughout. I love horror that builds tension and atmosphere rather relying on cheap shocks, and the author delivers. There's a definite sense of menace around the mining camp, and the evolution of the story. I also liked the fact that the presence isn't revealed too early.The setting is different from his previous books, and the level of research shows from the details.

I enjoyed the pacing, and the quality of the writing is what I've come to expect. He has a real craft to his writing. The author stands as one of my favourite contemporary horror writers, a must read for any fans of the genre.

Scott Draper has had gold fever ever since his grandpa showed him a nugget. His obsession ruined his marriage and his relationship with his daughter. Now he’s got a chance to make a fortune on a site at Black Pine Creek, Alaska. The place itself is eerie. A good quantity of new mining equipment has been left at the site – even last season’s final run hasn’t been removed from the wash plant. What’s going on? Then, Draper finds a body – a suicide.

This is an atmospheric story which ramps up the tension as it progresses. Many of the gang have worked together before and trust one another’s judgement. Even the surprise member of the group (can’t say, spoiler!) is a hard worker and becomes a trusted colleague. One man, though, doesn’t click with them. We begin to see why. The characters are well drawn and believable and the root of the problem is greed and the things people will do to feed it. They all suffer nightmares in which their fears come back at them, magnified. It’s tense and scary and I spent the last ten percent of this book on the edge of my chair. Absolutely a corker and the author’s best yet.

Scott Draper is a gold miner. He hasn't mined for 2 years after an incident, but wants back in. The only site he can get is at Black Pine Creek. Why did the last prospectors disappear leaving millions of dollars of equipment? Was it just because they got bored, or did something else happen?

This is a departure from David Haynes' previous books. It's more of a thriller and less of a full on horror story. Yes, there's something in the woods, but for me this book was more about the story than the frights. In fact the "something in the woods" could have been a bear and the story would still be as good.

This is a story more about the characters. I felt drawn in from the start, even though it might have been a storyline topic I'd less likely pick up if it wasn't from an author I know and love reading.

I found the character of the woods to be as much a character as the human ones. The descriptions were very clear (unlike the view in the woods) and I could easily picture it in my mind's eye.

Another fantastic book from an author who should be more popular.

Good story but extremely long winded. In certain places i had to speed read to hurry it along
Also think the ending was very poor considering how long the actual book was. It just felt like the author had ran out of steam finally and couldn't think of a better way to end.
Overall a good character building story would recommend it to others
