Ralph Willis offered his eighty-six years of accumulated general knowledge on all subjects. Tim Wendel gave some practical info about the world and TJ reminded me what fourth graders are like. My muscle class at the Hills helped on all manner of things. Susie Devening and Rebecca Bingham dredged up the worm ditty from the distant past. Amanda Walker gave unflagging Emily Dickinson consultation. The Trashy Paperback Writers-Fred Askew, Jodi Berls, Dinah Chenven, and Susan Wade-were there helping through the whole messy process.

Mary Willis Walker tells stories within stories in this fantastic novel. I purchased the books for my Kindle (20 years later!!) and discovered I enjoyed them as much as I did the first time!

That novel established Walker as an author with "the kind of clout that sets publishers' mouths watering" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). And now she has done it again, with an unforgettable tale ripped from the headlines and more terrifying than our worst nightmares. She can be heard on other BDD Audio presentations including "Under the Beetle's Cellar" and "The Red Scream," both by Mary Willis Walker, "Missing Pieces," and "A Small Dark Place.

Under the Beetle's Cellar could have been so run of the mill but with Mary Willis Walker behind the wheel (no pun intended) it was eerie

That novel established Walker as an author with "the kind of clout that sets publishers' mouths watering" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Under the Beetle's Cellar could have been so run of the mill but with Mary Willis Walker behind the wheel (no pun intended) it was eerie. She was really able to write from the mind set of someone in a cult. Walker writes of a fanatical cult leader so real that it could have been a story ripped from the headlines of any paper in the USA. Author:Walker, Mary Willis. Book Binding:Paperback.

The author and heroine of The Red  Scream return in a novel so terrifying, so  filled with squirming suspense, it's bound for the  bestseller lists. When Kirkus  Reviews greeted Mary Willis Walker's last book,  The Red Scream, with "welcome  to the big time," they weren't kidding. That  novel established Walker as an author with  "the kind of clout that sets publishers' mouths  watering" (The Philadelphia  Inquirer). And now she has done it again, with an  unforgettable tale ripped from the headlines and  more terrifying than our worst nightmares. Kidnapped  by a cult of religious fanatics, an Austin school  bus driver and eleven of his young charges have  been held underground at the group's highly  fortified compound for forty-six days. While a team of  federal negotiators begins to lose all hope of  rescuing the hostages, crime reporter Molly Cates sets  outto discover everything she can about the cult's  iron-willed leader, Samuel Mordecai. And as  the clock ticks inexorably, she takes the role of  Clarisse Starling opposite Mordecai's Hannibal Lecter,  engaging in a psychological confrontation as  harrowing as any in The Silence Of  The Lambs. Tough, terrifying, and relentlessly  heart-wrenching, this is a novel whose images no reader will  ever forget.From the Paperback edition.

Under the Beetle's Cellar was recommended to me as an example of one of the best suspense this person had ever read. At first, being a parent, I did not want to read about a school bus full of children and a bus driver being kidnapped -- 1) it's too horrific to contemplate much less spend time reading, 2) how could an author engage me with a Vietnam veteran bus driver being trapped with these children? But I kept reading to see what made Mary Willis Walker her "fav" suspense. And then I met Molly Cates, veteran crime reporter and a woman who at one time had interviewed Donnie Lee Grimes, aka Samuel Mordecai, adopted at birth and raised to be the twisted leader of a cult similar in scope to the Branch Davidians of Waco fame.

Mary Willis Walker tells stories within stories in this fantastic novel. She takes poetry from Emily Dickinson, passages from Kurt Vonnegut, and Revelations, and shows how these passages have influenced and in a real sense saved Mr. Demming during his captivity and warped Grimes's way of thinking to become who he is. Walker uses one of Dickinson's poems to play a covert part in the story -- to help Demming get a message to the FBI. As for Molly Cates investigative smarts -- brilliant! Loved the three dimensional way she was with her husband and daughter and when you finish the book, you can swear she's a real person. Wish Ms. Walker was still writing.

I purchased Ms. Walker's BOOKS (The Red Scream, Zero at the Bone and Under the
Beetle's Cellar) when published in the 1990's! Like so many readers', you read a good
book - pass it on to a friend - and it is never returned.....
I purchased the books for my Kindle (20 years later!!) and discovered I enjoyed them
as much as I did the first time! In fact, once again, I had to put Under the Beetle's Cellar
aside due to my eyes filling with tears.
Anyone reading this review - GO FOR IT!!!!!

I allowed someone to borrow my copy many years ago. Was thrilled to find a brand new sealed copy of the book! Very nice! Book is frightening, haunting, and thrilling.
Teonyo
Mary Willis Walker's trilogy is so well written, and even the parts about her ex-husband sizzled. Recommend this author.
Welahza
Great book!!!
Llbery
Excellent pacing, characterization and plot. Couldn't put it down! Though the subject could have been very dark and depressing, the author handled it in such a way that I just found it compelling!
Rocky Basilisk
One of the best books I've ever read. Amazing ending!
my wife loves it
