SCAVENGER by David Morrell

This is a captivating novel. It made me want to do research! Time capsules play a prominent role in the book. Morrell did extensive research and much of what you read about time capsules in this book is true. The main character, Frank Balenger, may be familiar to readers from Morrell's last novel, "Creepers." He is a physically and mentally damaged hero who finds himself and the woman he loves trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death. The brilliant self-proclaimed omniscient Game Master has an obsession for unearthing the past, and constructs a deadly game to uncover a 100 year old time capsule.

Morrell weaves video gaming, history, murder, and mystery into a tale that grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let go until the last page! I really enjoyed the novel.

David Morrell is a very talented writer and one of the nicest I've had opportunity to work with and meet. Can't wait to see what he does next!
