This book is very strange and disturbing, not one for the faint of heart. In the first part of the book, the suspense builds. Kenny and Lucky's characters are reunited after many years, and then their past together is explored. Lucky is a very interesting character, the son of the local Reverend, but with a highly manipulative personality. At first I didn't know if Lucky was just overly charismatic and a bit of a sociopath, or if something else was going on. The transitions between the past backstory and the present happening were a little choppy for me, I think it would have been better just to keep a chronological time line. At about the halfway point, when we return to the present, things start getting gory and perverse fairly quickly. Lucky's talents increase exponentially when he returns to Elton Township and he creates mayhem. I did like the overall idea of the story, but it could use some better execution. I think it would have been interesting to delve deeper into the history of the force on Grove Island as a horror aspect rather than relying on suspense and shock value.
