NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The #1 New York Times bestselling author of World War Z is back with "the Bigfoot thriller you didn't know you needed in your life, and one of the greatest horror novels I've ever read" (Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter and Recursion).

As the ash and chaos from Mount Rainier's eruption swirled and finally settled, the story of the Greenloop massacre has passed unnoticed, unexamined...until now. The journals of resident Kate Holland, recovered from the town's bloody wreckage, capture a tale too harrowing-and too earth-shattering in its implications-to be forgotten. In these pages, Max Brooks brings Kate's extraordinary account to light for the first time, faithfully reproducing her words alongside his own extensive investigations into the massacre and the legendary beasts behind it. Kate's is a tale of unexpected strength and resilience, of humanity's defiance in the face of a terrible predator's gaze, and, inevitably, of savagery and death.


Yet it is also far more than that.

Because if what Kate Holland saw in those days is real, then we must accept the impossible. We must accept that the creature known as Bigfoot walks among us-and that it is a beast of terrible strength and ferocity.

 

《紐約時報》暢銷書 - 寫過《末日之戰》的《紐約時報》暢銷作家以本書回歸文壇。“這部大腳怪驚悚小說是你以為生活中所不需要知道的事,它是我讀過最棒的恐怖小說之一”(布萊克•克勞奇--《人生複本》及《記憶的玩物》的作者)。
 
隨著雷尼爾山噴發的灰燼和混亂造成動盪不安,整個事件終於塵埃落定了,沒有人去關注或檢視格林盧普大屠殺一案……直到此刻。從小鎮的血腥殘局中找到的日記是由當地鎮民凱特•霍蘭德所寫,日記中記載了一個故事,它悲慘駭人的意義令人難忘。麥克斯•布魯克斯首次公布了凱特日記中驚人的紀載,他忠實地呈現了凱特的敘事以及他對大屠殺及其背後傳奇野獸的深入調查。凱特的故事講述了無法想像的力量和韌性,以及人類在可怕的掠食者虎視眈眈之下所做的反抗,以及最終無法避免的野蠻和死亡。
 
然而,它的意義遠不止此。
 
如果當時凱特•霍蘭德所見為實,那麼我們就必須接受這個匪夷所思的事實。我們必須接受被稱為大腳怪的生物就活在你我之間;它是一種具有神力及兇殘的野獸。

(譯者/文謙益)
