By Piers Anthony

While a fleshless corpse is located on a Florida property, a reclusive caretaker, an investigative reporter, a police officer, and a girl notice creature whose sufferers die in a frenzied nation of sexual ecstasy is preying on human beings.

Uploader's Note
This is indisputably Anthony's so much debatable paintings -- a few learn it as allegory, and others learn it as evidence that Anthony is both a pedophile or endorses pedophilia.

Still others simply give some thought to it a badly written, amateurish try out at writing horror. And judging by means of the Amazon experiences, it's the e-book probably to make long-time Anthony enthusiasts swear off his books altogether.

I vaguely remember having checked this out of a library again while it first got here out, yet don't have any actual recollection of the plot or content material, yet i know that it's completely not like Anthony's ordinary light-hearted fare. obtain at your individual risk.
