Warning! This is an adult thriller for a mature audience.
Outstanding!!! ~ Review by Comet
This usually isn't my "go to" genre, but I was intrigued by the cover art and teaser. Squeal is a exciting, intelligent, thriller that had twists and turns the whole way that kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that touches on all senses and delivers pleasant surprises around every corner.
Released June 18, 2014, Squeal by new author, Enoch St. John, is a wilderness/backwoods-type horror book that fans of dark fiction—especially fans of Lord of the Flies, Deliverance, and Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None—will love.
An allegorical tale packed with symbolism and bursting with violent, intensely visual brutal scenes, this book is not for the faint of heart.
Short synopsis: Seven dangerous juvenile delinquents get taken into the Hoh Rainforest on a wilderness therapy treatment program. But instead of redemption, the group finds a murderous beast intent on taking them out, one by one.
Longer synopsis: Jake Huntsman created WISH—Wilderness Intervention for Solutions & Healing—in order to rehabilitate the broken and the misguided, to reshape young lives before they are hardened and ruined. Deep in the Hoh Rainforest, his wards are forced to reevaluate the world around them, and the values they embody.
Since the program’s inception, Jake has had to deal with troubled teens of all sorts: kleptomaniacs, alcoholics, addicted gamers. Jake’s latest group of troubled teens includes an arsonist, an armed robber, a belligerent bully, and a boy who drove a fellow classmate to suicide.
But Jake discovers he has more than just wayward kids to deal with as the WISH trip to redemption gets interrupted by a monstrous force: a rabid, feral hog, bred to be destroyed, intent on devouring the skeletal team of leaders and seven deadly teens, one by one.
It is also available in print.
