Rating = 3.5 starsThis is a sort of Lovecraftian historical fiction, if you will. Or even if you won't. Romania, 1941. The Nazis encounter an ancient entity almost as evil as themselves. Only a Jewish scholar and his daughter and a mysterious red-haired man can save them. I liked this older work better than Wilson's Repairman Jack novels, which tend to be overlong and feel repetitive after you've read a few of them.
