    The sleepy resort town of Montauk is terrorized by strange beasts and it s up to Gray Dalton and the rest of the Montauk PD to get to the bottom of things But have they bitten offthan they can chew TheHunter Shea books I read, theconvinced I am that we would have been best buds when we were twelve The Montauk Monster takes the cryptid of the same name and sets it on a gory rampage through Montauk and neighboring towns.In some ways, this feels like a dry run of Shea s The Jers The sleepy resort town of Montauk is terrorized by strange beasts and it s up to Gray Dalton and the rest of the Montauk PD to get to the bottom of things But have they bitten offthan they can chew TheHunter Shea books I read, theconvinced I am that we would have been best buds when we were twelve The Montauk Monster takes the cryptid of the same name and sets it on a gory rampage through Montauk and neighboring towns.In some ways, this feels like a dry run of Shea s The Jersey Devil There are multiple monsters terrorizing a small town and only a small group of people are prepared for what comes next As in the Jersey Devil, Shea introduces character after character, only to have them mauled by the Montauk Monsters or succumb to the horrifying disease they carry.Tying the creature s origin to nearby Plum Island was a master stroke The chimeric, disease bearing creatures hit the beaches of Montauk and no one is safe They take down cops, stoners, reality stars, and a lot of other people before things are finally settled By the time things are over, DARPA, FEMA, the CDC, and other acronyms get involved and the ending is far from happy.Throw in some witty reparte and end of the world sex, and that s pretty much it The main characters, Dalton and Meredith, are pretty much stock thriller characters aside from the age difference and Meredith s bum leg When I say this feels like a dry run of Jersey Devil, I mean it It hits all the same beats and isn t quite as polished as JD.At the end of the day, this creature feature by Hunter Shea was pretty damn entertaining but not as good as his later works Three out of five stars

    Wow this book was a fun creature feature bloody romp Setting Montauk, New YorkPolice officer, Gray Dalton gets a call that bodies have been found on one of the beaches in the county When Officer Dalton gets there and sees the remains of the bodies, he wonders what has invaded his domain In the meantime, in other parts of the county, people are having problems with what they think are wild dogs that are causing a nuisance in the neighborhoods When neighbors go outside of their homes to Wow this book was a fun creature feature bloody romp Setting Montauk, New YorkPolice officer, Gray Dalton gets a call that bodies have been found on one of the beaches in the county When Officer Dalton gets there and sees the remains of the bodies, he wonders what has invaded his domain In the meantime, in other parts of the county, people are having problems with what they think are wild dogs that are causing a nuisance in the neighborhoods When neighbors go outside of their homes to investigate, the wild dogs are anything but friendly as they go into attack mode As people start getting scratched or hurt from the attacks they don t think nothing of it so they don t go to the doctor which turns out to be a deadly mistake When Officer Dalton hears about the wild dogs and he finds out they have been attacking people he puts two and two together as he begins to wonder if the dogs are responsible for the corpses on the beach As he gathers his police force together to go in search of these animals, he finds out quickly that these dogs are not normal as they are beyond his imagination Officer Dalton along with his officers find out that there is a government research facility not too far from Montauk called Plum Island and the dog creatures are coming from the island When Officer Dalton and one of his police officers, Meredith goes to check out the island, he is not a happy camper when he finds out what they have created there As the bodies start piling up, Dalton and Meredith race against time to see if they can stop the creatures from causing anydestruction and death When word gets out that the creatures have invaded the county, everyone descends on the community including the CDC as not only are the creatures attacking people as they are also spreading a deadly disease I was hooked from the first chapter as bodies and gore started flying TheI got into the book thebodies started turning up There is quite a bit to take in at first as there are lots of characters in this book, but don t get attached to anyone as they might end up dead Everyone is expendable in this book as no one is a favorite here If you are even a bit squeamish when it comes to gore and body parts, then you might not want to read this book as there is lots of graphic detail of the gore which abounds in this book But for you readers that like extreme blood and gore mixed with lots of graphic descriptions then by all means pick up this book as you will not be disappointed It is a wonder my kindle wasn t bleeding as the whole book is a blood soaked gory mess Author, Hunter Shea, really took this book for a gory romp as I think it is one of the bloodiest books I have read by him Giving it five gory stars for one horrific ride into terror

    THE MONTAUK MONSTER, by Hunter Shea, could easily be classified as one of his popularcreature features , yet this novel has muchto it than the vicious monsters, themselves Officer Gray Dalton s usually quiet shift is suddenly shattered by an anonymous call of what might be a body on one of the beaches While they were used to getting an occasional drowned body or, floater washing up on one of the shores, the the scenes of gore and carnage that Dalton comes upon is anything but routi THE MONTAUK MONSTER, by Hunter Shea, could easily be classified as one of his popularcreature features , yet this novel has muchto it than the vicious monsters, themselves Officer Gray Dalton s usually quiet shift is suddenly shattered by an anonymous call of what might be a body on one of the beaches While they were used to getting an occasional drowned body or, floater washing up on one of the shores, the the scenes of gore and carnage that Dalton comes upon is anything but routine.Keeping things quiet in a vacation town is virtually impossible, but what follows in the wake of this discovery is instead, a flurry of large, vicious animal sightings and attacks What the hell was people s obsession with death and dismembermentIn my opinion, the strongest part of this novel layin the implications and just howpossibleShea makes this entire scenario seem On the very nearby Plum Island, a government controlled research facility, a lack of communication is becoming noticed by a select few While nobody really seems to know the current purpose of the island, it had a history dating back to Nazi times It s the way of any large governmental entitya perfect place to do all kinds of things on the wrong side of ethics As usual, the characterization in this novel is top notch In addition to officer Dalton, many other individuals come into play here, and Shea takes the time to show us each character in great detail The fear and terror that suddenly descends upon these people is something that the reader can virtually feel just by reading their reactions The gory and violent scenes are made so muchbelievable by the fact that our own scientific research has become so advanced in recent years, meaning that the ideas presented here are no longer unthinkablewe have the technology now to make these nightmares come true While the monsters create plenty of bloodshed, single minded destruction, and ferocity to keep horror fans glued to the pages, the ideas and hypotheses on just what the scientists were working on in the government facility add an entirely new level of terror and suspicion Perhaps the greatest fear that we can feel is is that of what we don t fully understand The unknown factor is somehow worse than a threat no matter how large that we can picture and know the details of Without this knowledge, paranoia runs rampant turning our mentality into a shoot first, ask questions later modeWhat the hell were they messing with Something they shouldn t have Shea takes the paranoia now present in this town where they are being kept completely in the dark by those that knew first hand exactly what the threat is and convincingly weaves his tale of a crisis that few will ever know the truth of from an animal that was never meant to be This story left me with the unshakable feeling that it was not so much about what to fear the most, but rather, whoHighly recommended Review on Horror After Dark

    An entertaining monsters on the loose story that, despite some location name dropping, fails to establish a strong sense of place I am a Long Islander, and just didn t feel the vibe Also, in a subgenre that is plagued by cliches, this story manages to hit all of them Shea is a good writer, and one worth watching, but this was just too paint by the numbers to really wow a longtime horror fan.

    Excellent creature feature novel focusing on a famous cryptid.Weird looking creatures are washing up on shore Pets are disappearing, and human beings are being ripped apartAfter which they melt.The police and animal control try to figure out what s happening The military arrives, and doesn t make anything any better The monsters are in force and nothing can stop them.Great stuff, with lots of tension.
