Well it's a good few years since I've read any of Stephen Laws' books (the last was "Chasm" when it came out - in 1998! Can't believe it!) so I was really chuffed to get a copy of this as it's been on my "wishlist" for years.

So what did I think? Well, I did enjoy it & the story was entertaining, if a little fanciful in parts but I was disappointed that the writers style seemed to have changed so much from how I remembered it. As I recall....& it's obviously well over 15 years since I read them..."Darkfall", "Somewhere South of Midnight" & "Daemonic", to name but 3, were supernatural/horror tales that you could really get your teeth into & this wasn't (despite featuring some very big teeth...ha ha)

While the idea of a big cat roaming the moors was perfectly plausible, for me it fits into the thriller genre rather than horror. I guess the way the cat was to some extent "invisible" was a nod toward the supernatural but that for me didn't seem credible.

*SPOILER*The events where Cath & Drew were held by fugitives during the storm were quite tense in parts, although they were very stereotypical criminals (the "boss", the violent thug & the obligatory thick one who just does as he's told) And was it just me or did the writing seem a bit dated? Not that it affected my enjoyment at all...

Overall a good read but not the type of tale I was expecting from this author.
