Welcome to Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Miles from everything, with one road in and out, this peaceful town has never needed a full-time police force. Until now... A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven's only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom. And each will have this harrowing thought: Maybe death hasn t come to their town by accident... An absolute must read for anyone who loves the adrenaline rush of a shocking story told with style, speed, and savage grace. JONATHAN MABERRY, Bram Stoker Award- winning author One of the most intense, relentless books I ve ever read. This one takes no prisoners. Marcus Sakey, author of Good People.
