    #netgalley #GlimpseJonathan Maberry has a creepy, twisty novel that will keep you on your toes. Rain is a woman, who is cracking mentally.

    Wow. I am a long time fan of Jonathan Mayberry. This was a different sort of book from what I am used to from him. It was a mind bender and the mystery in this story kept me guessing until the very end. I very much enjoyed this! Had a little bit of urban fantasy in the mix. It was an on the edge of your seat, flipping the pages type of book. 4.5#stmattinspress

    NetGalley provided ARC.This may be the creepiest story I have read in a long time. Jonathan Maberry has created a world of shadows and pain. But he has also created a world of hope. One simple word to drive away the chaos. Just, whatever you do, don't say his name.

    I ama fan of Maberry’s Joe Ledger series so I was super excited that Netgalley gave me a chance to read this. Overall it was good. Pretty Tripp’s, but these types of books are good when all I’m reading lately is crime novels. Reminded me a lot of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I would have preferred more character development but the plot was good enough to keep me going.
