(From the publisher):
THE TOTEM plunges you into an all-to-real visceral terror made all the more terrifying because it is timely. When police chief Nathan Slaughter settles in the tiny mountain community of Potter's Field, Wyoming, his most fervent prayer is that he has left behind him forever the nightmare he barely survived as a policeman during a blizzardy night in Detroit. But nothing has prepared him for the greater sanity-threatening nightmare he is about to confront. Beginning with the discovery of mutilated cattle on outlying ranches, Slaughter is drawn deeper and deeper into a vortex of terror as the inexplicable attacks and mutilations quickly multiply, trapping the entire town in a frenzy of violence. As Slaughter and the medical examiner race against time to expose the horrifying secret behind the increasingly savage and uncontrollable attacks, they also struggle to overcome their deepest fears.
