The Slab - Jeff Mariotte

A novel set in an area called The Salton Sea - and the people that live there cheap in trailers on the Slab - polluted and nasty as it may be.

Even nastier, a monster lurks in the deep, and as the carefully woven strands of the different people in the strand come together they realise that their oddball occasional psychic gifts are the key to stopping it.

One of them being a local sheriff and arrayed against him nasty developers and goons, the military, his own deputy and others.

This was better than I thought it would be, certainly.

3.5 out of 5
