Synopsis: This is a signed limited edition hardback of only 400 copies They are out there, waiting in the shadows even in the highest places. The predators who stalk the weakest, most vulnerable members of society. A burned out tabloid reporter and a bestselling true crime writer are about to stumble upon a dark conspiracy.... and a man who thought he believed in nothing discovers how high a price he will pay to save the innocent...the damned...the Shackled.
Review: Ray Garton, author of such acclaimed supernatural horror novels as Live Girls and Crucifax, proves himself here to be accomplished at the suspense-thriller genre as well. The story is that pre-teen and teenage children are being abducted and subjected to horrifying "training" in order to turn them into brainwashed sexual slaves. The heroes whose quest is to uncover this operation are charming, interesting characters: a preacher in search of his kidnapped son, a tabloid reporter who's been assigned to cover the story, a true-crime writer who gets pulled unwillingly into the action, and a wheelchair-bound researcher with a computer-geek sidekick. The book is well structured, well paced, with some deliciously excruciating scenes involving spiders and snakes. This reviewer's only (mild) complaint is that all the heroes are men. An interview with Ray Garton can be read at Amazon.com.
