Comment: If you undertake this book be prepared to
withdraw from friends and family for several days. I am not a
huge horror fan and in my opinion this does not constitute a
horror novel despite being categorized thus. It is in my opinion
one of the most engrossing tomes I have ever encountered. Never
again will you view the term "use someone" in the same
vein after reading this book. If you look closely you will see
a dedication to Wolf Blitzer in the front of the book.
