Blurb:
“Mrs. Snider,” Duane asked. “Do you know anything about Black Pond?”

“There isn’t some monster drowning children. It’s a dangerous, polluted pond,” she said.

But there is a monster that lurks silently in the water, watching and waiting; hungry for its next meal. Duane has seen THE BEAST OF BLACK POND, and the beast has his scent. The beast hunts him from the pond, to the lake by the dam, even to his own swimming pool. Duane will need all his wits, and the help of his friends if he wants to avoid being pulled under to a watery grave.

 My Review:

**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

I liked the concept. It was an interesting and quick read. However, I will be honest, for a horror, I didn't really get the spine-chilling feeling I usually expect from the genre. While the monster was interesting in its abilities, I needed tension, terror and fear. I wanted to feel immersed in the world.
