"On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote gold mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins; and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so that they can learn what happened. With them is a psychic, and a paranormal photographer-as the town is rumored to be haunted. A party that tried to explore the town years ago was never heard from again. What this crew is about to discover is that twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they are not alone, and the past is very much alive."-- Provided by publisher.

I wasn't sure exactly what kind of book this was going to be based on the basic summary--would there be monsters, aliens, ghosts, divine intervention? I was thoroughly impressed with the twists and turns, the jumps between 1893 and 2009, and never knowing exactly who was a good guy and who was a villain. I loved the suspense and the story, but know that the Publisher's Weekly reviewer's phrase "Rambo-style melee" is spot-on for describing the gory violence throughout this book.

A good Crouch novel. Scary to think of this happening. My only problem was the quick jumping between 1890's and 2009

I enjoyed this book not least because of the creep factor involved! Deliciously scary, and a really fun read.

A dark dark book. Pessimistic, and without hope. Cruel, fatalistic with no way to alter ones destiny. One has to accept his fate. In the end, it's more than the "Gold" than changes people, it's the belief of people that changes them. This book is a hard read. After a while, you just want to let go and fall into the maelstrom of man's powerlessness for good, and his ever present evil madness.
