The residents of Boatmore are dropping off, one by one, in what at first appears to be unrelated, gruesome deaths. The island itself seems cursed in light of the dreadful tragedy that befalls Liam and Ally Price. Liam and his partner Martin are paramedics, training a new recruit, but no amount of experience could have prepared them for the damage done on the victims they are called upon to save. When the coroner notes, “I have seen many strange and dark things…but not on this island. Not in a place like this. Something about this feels personal,” his words are prophetic. Someone is stalking the teenagers of Boatmore; he wears a knitted hood, and “what he does to those boys, there has to be a reason behind it, a message.” Who the culprit is, and whether his wrath can be contained isn’t revealed until the very least breath of The Goners.
With his first book in The Boatmore Burcher series, L. Stephenson marks the revival of the slasher genre. The Goners twists and turns with breakneck speed and doesn’t slow down until its very last page. Fans of Wes Craven will be Screaming for the next installment.
