Review: MUDCAT by John Quick

MUDCAT is one superlative horror novel! Everything I look for in creature horror and more! The prologue blew me out of the water {intentional analogy!} with a scene of extreme horror I could never have imagined, then rocketed right on with one intensity after another!

In the small town of Ashford Fork, there is something unusual and dangerous lurking in the water. A severe rainstorm not only floods the town and takes out the bridges that connect Ashford to the outside world, it also releases the monster from the lake into the flooded streets.
