The Ruins

Back in the heat of summer (yes, the term "heat" is used ironically, given the milquetoast warmth we had this summer) I recommended a new thriller by Scott Smith as one of my St. Albert Gazette Great Reading picks. After reading it I see why Stephen King liked it: it's horrifying! A delightfully scary read for Halloween.

Here's the blurb from August:

The Ruins
By Scott Smith

Stephen King calls this scary thriller “the book of the summer”, noting that “it does for Mexican vacations what Jaws did for New England beaches in 1975." Four American tourists in Cancun, Mexico decide to leave the beach and go to the jungle in search of a German friend’s brother. They really, really should have stayed on the beach.
