Hyde's got a knack for writing suspenseful tales and Jericho Falls is suspense on a grand scale, involving a township under threat, somewhat akin to the structure of Stephen King tale. There's evidence of Hyde's research behind this macabre tale of a deadly biological agent unleashed upon the sleepy town of Jericho Falls and this aids the suspension of disbelief. The characters are well rounded and entertaining and although the story meanders a little at times it's a decent and overlooked thriller. ( )
