Recently widowered and grieving Gavin flees New York City for the uiet of the country His new home on Lake Caldasac has surprisingly few visitors and the author soon learns why a suspiciously high number of people have gone missing in the small town The deaths have all been rule. Gavin Corlie is a famous horror writer who loses his wife in a traffic accident and spends his days in a drunken stupor considering suicide Eventually realising he has to change his life he buys a house in New Mannheim on the banks of Lake Caldasac where he retreats to the country to lick his wounds Once there he meets Finn Horn a young handicapped boy who enjoys fishing on the lake and the lovely Dr Laurel Their lives intersect and together Gavin and Finn begin to hunt the creature which nearly killed Finn out on the lake For there is a reason that nobody fishes on Lake Caldasac and why it has than the usual number of boating accidents and unexplained deaths and that is the monster that lurks in the waterThis novel reminded me of a 1970 s disaster movie but in the nicest way On one level it is a basic story about Gavin and Finn both damaged in some way and their hunt for the creature that will continue to kill unless it is caught Yet it also has great characters and a heartwarming message about friendship and acceptance as well as the second monster of the storyline the psychotic Sheriff Pope who haunts the pages of the novel with a malevolence and violence which makes him almost as scary as the creature in the water I think this book could easily become a pretty average tv movie which personally I would avoid I can say with certainty that the novel is much better than anything a scriptwriter could make of it I really enjoyed this it was the first book I have tried by this author but I am sure it will not be the last I read by him
