Los Angeles, 2003 a funeral is taking place. Sarah Tweedy has died and only one mourner attends the service. This solitary mourner is her husband, Otis. Nothing strange in a husband attending the funeral of his wife-you would think. The only problem is Otis Tweedy died thirty-five years before.
In the follow up to Cappawhite, Gerald J. Tate has taken up where he left off. Thirty-five years have passed since Ottis and Sarah Tweedy travelled to Ireland to the little town of Cappawhite. Now, Sarah is dead and there is no one to control the vengeful spirit that was once her husband. He stalks the forest of Cappawhite and anyone who comes in contact with him does not live to tell the tale.
The people of Cappawhite need help and only an aging detective, an embittered American journalist and an obsessed fisherman seem to be able to offer any.
Tate does not leave any loose ends in his sequel to Cappawhite. If you wondered what happened to the priests child or Mick, the local drunk, all your questions will be answered in Cappawhite II. It is a horror story that relies as much on its characters to tell the tale as it does the chilling narrative. It has plenty of thrills that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing on ends and it also has new characters that you will want to get to know.
Very few sequels stand up to its predecessor but Tate has managed to not only measure up to Cappawhite, he has surpassed it. Cappawhite II is a thrilling tale where gods and monsters battle it out in the hope that good will triumph over evil.
