Abstract:

On a quiet Thursday evening in a small valley in the West, a sheriff discovers the body of a young hitchhiker, apparently the victim of a hit-and-run driver. Later that evening, the coroner who was to perform a routine autopsy is discovered dead of a heart attack. And the corpse of the young hitchhiker is missing. From this low-keyed beginning, The Totem slowly escalates into a nightmare vision of visceral terror built upon themes familiar to readers of David Morrell--guilt and retribution for past violence.
