Publisher's Summary

The Woman is the powerful story of the last survivor of a feral tribe of cannibals who have been terrorizing the East Coast - from Maine into Canada - for years now. Badly wounded in a battle with police, a woman takes refuge in a cave overlooking the sea. Christopher Cleek is a slick, amoral - and unstable - country lawyer who, out hunting one day, sees her bathing in a stream. Fascinated, he follows her to her cave.
Cleek has many dark secrets and to these he'll add another. He will capture her, lock in his fruit cellar, in order to tame her, civilize her. To this end, he'll enlist his long-suffering wife Belle, his teenage son, Brian, and daughter, Peg, and even his little girl, Darlin', to aid him. So the question soon becomes: who is more savage? The hunter or the game?

Horror, Jack Ketchum Style

Like most good Horror stories, this gets creepier as it goes along for a finale, with several cool twists. It is book three in a series, but it is not necessary to have read the other two books. It is interesting to see who the bad guys are and who the good guys are. The book does involve rape, torture and incest. It was entertaining throughout and appealed to my sophomoric intellect. If your a Jack Ketchum fan, you need to add this to your collection.

Sex! Violence! Incest! S&M! Abuse! Sexploitation!

This is a unique and deeply disturbing book about the consequences of messing with mother nature and all of her wonderful children. There's a very important lesson to be learned from this insightful book.

It's like the movie "Falling Down" set deep in the forest, with a female protagonist who uses her other attributes to achieve her goal of getting back at a world that's beaten her down.

Although disturbing, I enjoyed it greatly and was happier for having read it.
