"Todd Bowden is an apt pupil. Good grades, good family, a paper route. But he is about to meet a different kind of teacher: Mr. Dussander. Todd knows all about Dussander's darl past. The torture. The death. The decades-old manhunt Dussander has escaped to this day. Yet Todd doesn't want to turn him in. Todd wants to know more. Much more. He is about to learn the real meaning of power--and the seductive lure of evil."--Publisher's description.

Outstanding narration on this audiobook complements a truly disturbing tale or intergenerational evil.
It's funny but I think the author's best writing comes when he doesn't resort to supernatural or fantastical elements and makes his stories about plausible human relationships and situations (also see "Gingerbread Man"). The ending, alas, was a bit of a let down as well as being pretty telegraphed from about disc 3, but what a great ride to get there.

A very good listening - but it was stephen king what else is there to say that it was great.
