Review: RETREAT by J. F. GONZALEZ

The last novel completed by author J. F. Gonzalez, RETREAT has just been posthumously published. I leaped to get it and am immensely gratified. It's a wonderful horror-suspense-mystery story, full of superbly drawn characters, a tautly-defined plot, some really despicable (and frightening) individuals--and plot elements that are amazing. It's also rife with class distinctions: further proof that "the Marie Antoinette Syndrome" didn't die with her. I think if Countess Erzbet [Elizabeth] Bathory, the "Blood Countess," could return to life in the 21st century, she would be a happy, active, member of the upper tier at Bent Creek Country Club & Resort. If you've ever pondered whether the 1 Percent are really like the rest of us--read on.
