THE NOISE by JAMES PATTERSON AND J.D.BARKER

The Noise

IF YOU HEAR IT IT’S TOO LATE!

Close to Mount Hood a group of people are living off -grid and doing just fine. They are self-sufficient and doing well.

Until the day that sixteen-year-old Tennant is checking rabbit traps in the woods with her eight-year-old sister Sophie and they feel a powerful and strange vibration coming out of the forest. Like a tornado. When their father suddenly appears and tosses them into the nearest cellar. But the sound doesn’t stop. It’s horrible and Sophie is bleeding from her ears and rocking back and forth.

And then the army comes in and takes them to the nearest base. Sophie is uncontrollable and seems possessed, mumbling a name over and over. Her temperature is way above normal and she is super strong.

Patterson and Barker writing together is genius. They both know how to crank up the tension and keep you turning the page long after you should be asleep! And of course ,there are lots of puzzles to figure out and theories to test and plenty of people getting killed in the goriest of ways.

Always a pleasure!
