I seldom read horror/fantasy or whatever you call this genre and now I know why. This book, which started out pretty well, lost me about five chapters in and I started to think that it was just rather silly. Bad things happen in a small town and are linked to a noxious gas that escaped from a laboratory and to the "dragon", an evil entity from the past. The police are of the worst stereotype, and the story is full of characters that range from wife beaters to old, washed up writers to a child with telekinetic powers to blah, blah, blah. I know that Straub has a large fan base but this was not my cup of tea at all.
