I've been a fan of Jeff's DESPERADOES series and always like Tommy's art so it's no surprise this combination works so well. Three thumbs up!
The Slab Apr 2, 2004
The Slab is the freshest thing I've read in years. With a touch of the subtlety of F.Paul Wilson, some of the strangeness of Dean Koontz, Jeff Mariotte has captured the minds and actions of "real feel" people in a not so normal situation.
Staged in Salton Sea California, this book gives the reader the real feel of this desert isolation and it's quirky residents. Combining a mix of characters that includes a greedy real estate broker, a socially inept but morally strong sheriff, his corrupt deputy, and a cast of outcast characters that mix so well together that the reader feels right at home inside the heads of most of them. The book is a trip!
Written with a supernatural undertone, the pieces of this puzzle flow so well together that as I read, I was not at all disappointed with the prospect of this excellent suspense thriller ending with "more than human" powers being exerted. What starts as a thriller, ends with a supernatural event.
If you like F Paul Wilson you will love The Slab. I did!
horror and suspense in the CA desert Sep 28, 2003
The Slab gives Jeff Marriotte' Desperado and Angel, etc., fans a chance to see what he can do when writing prose in a universe of his own creation. There's a lot going on in this book -- some good, some evil, most weird and magical. A young woman is on the run from a group of twisted hunters. People living in the middle of nowhere are in danger of losing their homes, their lives, and maybe the rest of humanity along with them. The great artwork complements Marriotte's descriptives nicely.
