From Publishers Weekly
The approaching millennium looms large in Monteleone's latest, which reprises the theme of ordinary people endowed with miraculous powers that hallmarked his Bram Stoker Award-winning novel, Blood of the Lamb (1992). After surviving a plane crash in the Florida Everglades, Maryland senator and Republican presidential hopeful Thomas Flanagan finds himself able to raise the newly dead by a laying-on of hands.

Before he can turn his powers to greater good, however, he is exploited by power brokers in Washington and investigated by the Vatican Secret Service, whose Special Commission on Miracles is wary...

From Publishers Weekly
The imminence of biblical apocalypse sustains this ambitious but overstuffed sequel to Monteleone's millennial thriller, Blood of the Lamb (1992). In that novel, Father Peter Carenza, who was cloned from a bloodstain on the Shroud of Turin, first showed his dark side, using his awesome supernatural gifts to self-serving ends and raising fears among Vatican higher-ups that imperfect human efforts to engineer the Second Coming had produced the anti-Christ instead. As the newly appointed pope, Carenza has now begun to overturn the foundations of the Catholic religion, revoking clerical vows of celibacy so that he can marry Marion Windsor, an increasingly reluctant lover whom he accidentally kills in anger but then resurrects. Carenza's outrages coincide with the secret resurgence of the Knights of Malta, miracles...

From Publishers Weekly
Robert Ludlumesque political intrigue with a religious twist is on offer in this newest thriller from Monteleone (The Reckoning; The Blood of the Lamb). At the heart of the story is a sliver of stained glass depicting the eyes of the Madonna, which is believed to possess supernatural powers. The artifact has long been safe in the benevolent hands of the Vatican and its secret society of defenders, the Elder Knights of Malta, but as the novel kicks off, the shard is stolen by the Guild, a shadowy international cabal. Shortly after the theft, American computer whiz Kate Harrison is framed for the double murder of her husband and sister. She goes on the lam with private investigator Matt Etchison, whose Navy SEAL background proves handy when assassins start showing up periodically and spraying hot lead in their...

From Publishers Weekly
Initiated in 1990 to "expand the envelope" of horror writing, the Borderlands anthologies have yielded an abundance of quirky and eccentric tales from writers who pushed "beyond the usual metaphors" by which contemporary horror and dark fantasy are usually defined. This fifth volume-the first in a decade-features a healthy quotient of offbeat efforts that resist simple categorization. Stephen King's "Stationary Bike," for example, is a deft blend of paranoid fantasy and social satire about a successful weight watcher pursued by hypostatized versions of his metabolism who resent being put out of work. In "Father Bob and Bobby," Whitley Streiber maps the mind of his priest protagonist, whose thoughts are an unsettling mix of Christian imagery and pederastic fantasy. David Schow, in "The Thing Too Hideous to...

From Publishers Weekly
The 27 reprints in Monteleone's story collection span the last 22 years and are as much a chronicle of the course horror fiction has taken in that time as they are of the author's career. Several are solid dark fantasies that strive for a subtle sense of unease rooted in the troubled emotions of their characters. In the best of them, "Rehearsals," a Twilight Zone–type memory tale, a man watches his childhood replay itself as a painful stage drama he's desperate to rewrite. "Love Letters" is a skillfully underplayed blend of supernatural horror and psychological suspense, written as an exchange of letters in which one correspondent reveals an increasingly inhuman sensibility. Monteleone (Eyes of the Virgin, etc.) has used virtually every classic horror trope, from vampires in "Triptych di Amore," in which a...

From Booklist
Stories selected from throughout Monteleone's 30-year career demonstrate his impressive versatility. Although "Dancer in the Darkness" deals with flamenco in a manner that is not at all humorous, "Just in the Niche of Time" is at least semihumorous. Monteleone's homage to Rod Serling, "Mister Magister," appears in its original, short-story form and adapted as a one-act play. "The Curandeiro" is based on the phenomenon of a Brazilian healer of the 1980s; "Taking the Night Train" is a screed against Times Square in its most corrupt and sleazy days; and "The Prisoner's Tale" is set against the backdrop of the Battle of Soleferino (1859). Monteleone achieves such variety simply by exploring a multitude of intellectual highways and byways, which his colleague John De Chancie vividly portrays in the general introduction. As...
