The Devil's Peak is a must read for anyone who read Michael Wallace's Devil's Deep. I enjoyed being reunited with Wes & Becca, and going on yet another one of their thrilling adventures. The twists and turns in this book is what made it a page turner for me. I look forward reading anything by this author.

Thought I had done a review of The Devil’s Deep, but I don’t see it. So it was the first of a trilogy dealing with patients in nursing homes that are in a vegetative state and thought to be brain dead but are not. They can only communicate with eye movement or blinks if only someone would notice them trying.

The second book is The Devil’s Peak and picks the lead characters of the first book who have formed a group that actively tries to locate PVS patients who may be trapped in their heads and tr

Follow up to "The Devil's Deep." He did a great job at creating a new story based on the same theme (locked in syndrome) as the first book, but I think there were some parts that fell flat. For example, I kept expecting the characters mentioned in the first paragraph or their actions to have some sort of significance in the story, but they were merely mentioned towards the end and didn't really have anything to do with the plot.

I do give it kudos for the crazy girlfriend, though. She was incred

I am giving this book four stars rather than three, due to the subject content. The Devil's Peak refers to a mountain for skiers, where Walter Fitzroy meets with a beating and ends up mute, with multiple injuries, in a nearby rehabilatative hospital, where he is terrorized by the psychopath, Darlene. How can he escape her ministrations, and let people know that his mind is okay? It would seem to me to make an interesting screenplay.

The Devil's Peak, the second book in this series, was just as gripping, original, and 5-star-worthy as the first book. I'm totally in love with the theme of this series and Wallace's ability to consistently deliver such a powerful and suspenseful plot. Recommending the whole series to anyone who likes a good, thrilling mystery story!!

This is my fourth Michael Wallace book and I can honestly say that I love his books. They have a nice pace and at times you'll sit there scratching your head wondering who the heck did it. He's an indie author so his books are very reasonable and you couldn't go wrong picking one up and diving right in.

The Devil's Peak was my least favorite of the series. There is an added focus in this book: the psychotic mind. Not only did feature a man locked in his own mind, but it also veered into the mind of the mentally ill. In a way, it reminded me of Misery (Stephen King) mixed with One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

A little difficult to get in to

The first third was back ground and I think could have been accomplished quicker and shorter. The ending then seemed like the author was tired of it and summarized it in a few pages.

This was a good read. It sounded good on Book Bub so I thought I'd try it. The suspense is good, and keeps the reader on edge as it moves quickly along. I was wondering how it was all going to fit together, but it had a satisfying ending.

I really like Michael's books. This one was another winner. Already started book 3. Ordered more books from his web site as well. Michael Wallace is a very versatile author. I've read his Righteous Series as well. All of them were good.

The second novel in this series by Michael Wallace. Good, solid writing and interesting enough to keep me coming back for more. This book was a bit darker and had its share of nail biting/creepy characters and plot twists. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Good book but after reading two other of his "the devil's..." Series, I feel it's a little redundant.

This is the second in series about locked in syndrome. I like the characters Becca and Wes a lot bug I think the first book in this series was a better story. I still enjoyed the book, though.

Same main characters as The Devil's Deep, although the focus was more on Becca. A few more improbable incidents, but overall still a satisfying story.
