Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
On a cold October night, five people gather in a run-down motel on the Jersey shore and begin preparations to break into the Paragon Hotel. Built in the glory days of Asbury Park by a reclusive millionaire, the magnificent structure - which foreshadowed the beauties of art deco architecture - is now boarded up and marked for demolition.The five people are creepers, the slang term for urban explorers: city archeologists with a passion for investigating abandoned buildings and their dying secrets. On this evening, they are joined by a reporter who wants to profile them - anonymously, as this is highly illegal activity - for a New York Times article.Frank Balenger, a sandy-haired, broad-shouldered reporter with a decided air of mystery about him, isnt looking for just a story, however. And after the group enters the rat-infested tunnel leading to the hotel, it becomes clear that he will get much more than he bargained for. Danger, terror, and death await the creepers in a place ravaged by time and redolent of evil.

Still, if you haven't read a ton and you want something that's out of a B movie to amuse you on that airplane trip you're taking, then consider this.
Best work by David Morrell is "Brotherhood of the Rose" and if you want something that keeps the mind as well as the senses going - for beyond that airplane ride - I'd go with that.
I first read "Creepers" shortly after it was published and just recently read it again. I can see how readers who enjoy Morrell's spy novels and executive-protection novels might find "Creepers" silly. But taken on its own terms, it's an excellent thrill-a-minute roller-coaster ride. Morrell's other novels (I've read about a half-dozen others) have a tendency to start strong and then sag around the beginning of the third act. "Creepers" does not have this problem -- after a quick set-up, it charges along at full steam, right to the end.
What makes this a four rather than three star read is the evocative description of the setting and the very interesting premise and plot. As a native Philadelphian, the Jersey shore is my second home, and while South Jersey remains a bustling series of resort towns, the abandonment and decay of the legendary Asbury Park is an intriguing setting. An old, fantastically ornate hotel has endless possibilities, some of which are not fully exploited, but others are.
I do not as a rule read fiction, but I am fascinated by adventures I will never undertake due to my health, such as investigating old buildings and hiking the Appalachian trail. This book was mentioned in an issue of Weird N.J. and I had to read it simply because the subject was so similar to many of their articles on urban explorations (usually with permission!).
I finished it in one day because I had to know how it all turned out, and I was a little frustrated by some unanswered questions about the antagonist, but it was an enjoyable read. I will be reading the sequel because the main character is interesting, although the reviews of Scavenger are not as good as this the reviews of this book.
Character development is pretty good, the tone and mood is set right away.
My brother read this first and recommended it. Very glad I read it.
While not discouraging me from ever ghost hunting, I definitely picked up a few pointers on what to do/what not to do and equipment needed.
Bravo Mr. Morrell!
