The Lambert Family is heading to Crescent Lake, a rural cabin community in western Pennsylvania, for an idyllic weekend getaway. Some fishing, some barbecue, some games...
The Fannelli brothers are heading to Crescent Lake too. Some stalking, some kidnapping, some murder, definitely some games...though not necessarily the type of games the Lamberts had in mind.
But it doesn't matter. The Lamberts are going to play whether they like it or not.
An innocent family with the intent to pass a relaxing weekend away from the city, go to stay in a cabin by Crescent Lake. Little did they know that they have chosen 'hell' for their vacation. Even before they arrive at their destination, strange things start to happen.
They encounter and fall prey to the sick minds of two psychopath brothers who happen to live in that area with their sick mother. These brothers live with the notion that they came to this world with the sole purpose of torturing and tormenting people for their own amusement. Encounters with these brothers turn from strange and odd at the beginning to horrific in no time.
This is a very creepy novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Try not to read it before you go to sleep as you may get nightmares...When I was reading it at night I had to check that I have locked all doors and windows...just in case.
If you like to read good dark, disturbing novels full of suspense then read Jeff Menapace's novels. You won't regret it and like me you will want more from this author, in fact I will now start reading the sequel to this novel 'Vengeful Games'.
