    1. Longhorn is a well written chiller.

The writing boasts Maree’s commanding grasp on co [...]

In fact, from this starting point, the story flys quickly from one calamity to another, with protagonist Jesse getting caught up in more than one bloody encounter. Not for the faint of heart, Longhorn is a chilling story [...]

    5. While going to observe a calving of one of his prize longhorns, Jesse meets his new veterinarian, come to give him news. On the way to the calving, they pass men in hazmat suits traipsing around in his wife's neighbor alfalfa fields. The vet enquires, but Jesse doesn't know much about his wife's business. Jesse and the doc reach the calving pens in time to witness the birth of a monstrous amalgam of calf and scorpion. Horrified, Jesse shoots the deformed calf, and the vet takes the body away to [...]
