David Morrell's CREEPERS was a publishing event in 2005, a powerful, edgy, dark thriller by a master of the genre. SCAVENGER, Morrell's latest novel, takes us on a roller-coaster ride as Frank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of CREEPERS, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death as he leads a high-tech scavenger hunt for a decades-old time capsule. To save himself, and the woman he loves, Balenger must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obession for unearthing the past. But sometimes the past is buried for a reason. As modern technology is layered over the dusty artifacts of earlier times, the result if a surreal manuscript, one which contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the game's clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger. Morrell's trademark action sequences are embedded with fascinating historical clues that make SCAVENGER a true page-turner and a mesmerizing literary experience.
