I've had this in my TBR for some time now. I have a large number of Laymon novels that I have yet to read... I seem to be hoarding them since there won't be anymore. Time to stop, read, enjoy, and set free!

Cover blurb:

Nothing much happens in Donnerville. At least not to the young librarian, Jane Kerry. Then one day Jane finds an envelope containing a fifty-dollar bill and a note instructing her to "Look homeward, angel." Jane pulls a copy of the Thomas Wolfe novel of that title off the shelf and finds a second envelope. This one contains a hundred-dollar bill and another clue. Like the first, it's signed "MOG (Master Of Games)." The game has begun...

But this is no ordinary game. As it goes on, it requires more and more of Jane's strength and ingenuity. It pushes her into actions that she knows are crazy, immoral or criminal--and it becomes continually more dangerous. More than once, Jane has to fight for her life. But she soon learns she can't quit this game. MOG won't let her. She'll have to play to the bitter end.

Awesome story! Yet again, Laymon proved himself the master with this book! The first two thirds of the book, though, had me wondering why everything was so mellow, not his usual style. His awesome gift for words kept me reading though.... then things took a turn for the worst, and I knew I was back in Laymonland! Jane rocks! MOG is so pleasantly twisted.

Going to give this book to gillianne to read and do with as she pleases.
