Northwoods by Bill Schweigart

Northwoods by [Schweigart, Bill]

Some borders should never be crossed. From the author of The Beast of Barcroft comes a waking nightmare of a horror novel that’s sure to thrill readers of Stephen King and Bentley Little.
Ex–Delta Force Davis Holland, now an agent for the Customs and Border Protection, has seen it all. But nothing in his experience has prepared him for what he and the local sheriff find one freezing night in the Minnesota woods.
Investigating reports of an illegal border crossing, the two men stumble across a blood-drenched scene of mass murder, barely escaping with their lives . . . and a single clue to the mayhem: a small wooden chest placed at the heart of the massacre. Something deadly has entered Holland’s territory, crossing the border from nightmare into reality.
When news of the atrocity reaches wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severance, he sends a three-person team north to investigate. Not long ago, the members of that team—Ben McKelvie, Lindsay Clark, and Alex Standingcloud—were nearly killed by a vengeful shapeshifter. Now they are walking wounded, haunted by gruesome memories that make normal life impossible. But there is nothing normal about the horror that awaits in the Northwoods.

*I received this in exchange for an honest review*
Wow, I loved The Beast of Barcroft and was excited to see the characters return in Northwoods. I was a little annoyed at first, with the scenes flipping back and forth but as it all came around together, I got it. I enjoyed the story and would love to know if they plan to do another one! The book is an interesting premise that I have yet to see. It reminds me of a Stephen King or Dean Koontz novel where the tale is twisting until the end. You feel mind blown when the story wraps up and you figure out what's really going on. I like that it flows and keeps going, without slowing down. Family dynamics and the relationships between the characters turn this suspenseful story into something that any reader can enjoy. Paranormal, suspense and mystery readers will all find something in this book to like.
