Publisher's Summary

Bethany's Sin is a tiny, picturesque village in rural Pennsylvania. Its tree-lined streets, beautiful houses, and manicured exteriors offer - or appear to offer - both peace and a place of refuge. Evan Reid, a man haunted by his memories of the Vietnam War and by a history of viscerally disturbing dreams, comes to the village with his wife and daughter, hoping to make a fresh start after a series of discouraging setbacks. At first, all goes as planned.
Evan resumes his career as a freelance writer while his wife, Kay, begins teaching math at a local college. But there are things going on in Bethany's Sin that no one wants to talk about: unexplained disappearances, houses that stand strangely vacant, half glimpsed figures that appear to be female, the impossible sound of hoof beats in the night. At the center of it all stands a single imposing woman: Dr. Kathryn Drago, a scholar and community leader who holds the key to the mysteries that enshroud the town.

I am following a person who gave this five stars. I will have to disagree slightly. It was probably very good 30 years ago, but compared to today it is a little slow and a little talky. I liked it and listen to the whole thing. It is different and I stayed with it to find out what was going on. This involves a sort of werewolf, amazon clan? It is a scary town for men to live in.
One of the main characters, Kay, is not very empathic to her veteran husband. I did not care for her at all.

A little less talk, more building of suspense, less evil eye crap, and this would have made five stars.

Ray Porter is one of the coolest narrators out there.

What did you like best about this story?

It was thrilling, terrifying and well written. I read the story in print years ago and was pleasantly surprised that it did not seem terribly dated. This was written more than 30 years ago so some of the themes you've seen before but this just might be where they were born. I highly recommend this especially for horror fans. Mr. McCammon's energy, imagination and writing skills teamed with Ray Porter's performance makes this a winner.

If you could rename Bethany's Sin, what would you call it?

I would not dare to change a word of this gem, including the title.
