What do an old hand-cranked phonograph, an old record from the 1930s, and an ancient evil, all have do with what is happening in Harbor Island, Maine? That is what faces Sheriff Mark Blaine. Mark is a former Philadelphia police officer, who had to leave the force do to crawling into the bottle after a hard shooting. He then goes to Harbor Island to become their sheriff. This is what this book has. To tell you any more, would be giving you spoilers.
This is the first book of Al Lamanda’s that I have read, and it will not be the last. I was completely engrossed, even though the first part of the book was kind of slow reading, and there were a couple of technical errors, but, as you can see, it did not detract me away from the story that much.
I will definitely not be disappointed if you bought this book. It is only $.99 in digital form, and you are certainly getting more than your money’s worth for it.
