He had fled from the terrors of his past, finding refuge in the quietness of the island. And for a time he lived in peace. Until the sightings began, visions of horror seeping into his mind like poisonous tendrils, violent acts that were hideously macabre, the thoughts becoming intense. He witnessed the grotesque acts of another thing, a thing that glorified in murder and mutilation, a monster that soon became aware of the observer within its own mind. And relished contact. A creature that would eventually come to the island to seek him out.

James Herbert is a bestselling horror writer whose titles include The Dark, Domain, Haunted, The Jonah, Lair, The Rats, The Secret of Crickley Hall, and Sepulchre.From Library Journal :
Psychic Jon Childes, a teacher of computer science at a private girls' school in the Channel Islands, has unwillingly linked minds telepathically with a particularly vicious murderer, whose crimes have a strange connection with the phases of the moon. While police are suspicious of Childes, they seek his assistance as his nightmare visions grow stronger and the killer chooses his daughter as intended victim. Herbert, previously published in this country in paperback, makes his hardcover debut with a tense, chilling, and satisfying blend of human and supernatural horror. An expert stylist, he is equally adept with personal relationships and gruesome goings-on. Definitely not for the squeamish, but recommended for all horror fans and popular fiction collections.
