"Somewhere in the American South, there is a town where something is very, very wrong. A place where malicious men may die, but malice ... never. When Carsten Stroud's previous novel, Niceville, was published, Elmore Leonard wrote: "I hope Mr. Stroud, having had so much fun writing Niceville, listening to his people give him terrific dialogue, is writing a sequel or another one like it." We give you The Homecoming. Kate and Nick Kavanaugh (lawyer and cop respectively) take in young Rainey Teague, whose parents have died under mysterious circumstances. Rainey is a handful. Well, actually, Rainey is turning out to be someone--or something--downright scary: a shape-shifting time-bending little boy who will have to resist being taken over by "Nothing." Will Kate and Nick be able to save him? Will the mirror they have kept up in the attic ultimately be their downfall? When more disappearances start to happen, where do they turn? No one can explain what is happening, but everyone knows that their sleepy, peaceful town, Niceville, is turning out to be anything but nice."-- Provided by publisher.

The first book in the series, Niceville, was "unputdownable". This one, not so much. What was novel and eerie in the first book is just repeated here and it unfolds so slowly. A bit more of the mystery is revealed and you wonder why anyone would live in this town!
