From the cover: “Readers of the three tales in this book will find themselves irresistibly compelled to lock all their doors and windows before turning out the light. The Cell is the diary of a werewolf — or a madman — a day-by-day description of his “illness” as it gains control and turns him into a brutal killer. A different sort of killer stalks the moors of Dartmoor in The Hunter, defying the efforts of the police to track him down. In The Dead End a manlike creature of mysterious origin roams the barren hills of Tierra del Fuego trying to satisfy his lust for blood.
The sure craftsmanship of these tales proves that David Case is a natural storyteller, completely at home in the genre developed by Poe, Jules Verne, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”
