Publisher's Summary

Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...
A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.
Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying—maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...
AFRAID by Jack Kilborn
Are you afraid of the dark? You will be.

Run, catch, torture, repeat puhleeezz

Small town USA is infiltrated by a bunch of crazy sadistic soldiers looking for a particular person. They confront people pretty much one at a time looking for said person. Three main characters are the town's only hope (not really they basically just save themselves). Much like "Trapped" all the characters are confronted, some fall or something stops them from escaping and they're tortured, somehow manage to miraculously get away, run, fall or get stuck, tortured, run somewhere else blah blah blah. I did like this one better than Trapped and could at least finish it (couldn't with his Endurance). He does a really good job of describing the torture without being too "gross". I just wish he would come up with different "scenes" for lack of a better word. They're all the same. Run, trip fall or get stuck, be tortured, escape, run somewhere else and the whole thing starts over again. Uh, how about hide or run out of town or find weapons. Seems like a B rated straight to DVD story. The plot was unique in this one and the narrator did a descent job. Just all the running around haphazardly drives me crazy. If you're bored and don't have anything better to read give it a try.

He had to cut his own leg off, again

This is one of those books, where saying you like it, might make people wonder about you. This is not literature. This is not all that clever, although there are twists and turns and surprises. This has to be the goriest book I have ever read or listened to. This has torture that makes you cringe, lots of bloood. The evil characters are as evil as you get. Bernie's story is so disturbing I will never forget it.

You have now been warned as all the reviews mention this is gory. I have to say I loved it because it kept my attention, it made driving hundreds of miles fly by. Entertainment value was high for me and I was in the mood to be entertained.

I am following two people that gave reviews on this. One gave it five stars and one gave it one star. The one who gave it five stars reads lots of scary stuff. The one who gave it one star is big into outdoors and military books.

No, one guy does not cut off both his legs, but his dad cut off his leg and then he finds himself caught in a bear trap and he has to cut off his leg. I will admit that after about seven hours I was ready for people to quit cutting.

The part where a little boy is caught in a burning building with his elderly babysitter and his babysitter decides she is going to shoot him to save him from burning, was extremely well done. The school locker room massacre was good and etc.
