John Searles will happily scare you with his tale in this, his third book.
It will haunt you and delight and keep you turning page after page as he brings you deeper and deeper into the world of Sylvia Mason.
As snow falls in February on one wintry evening, she hears the phone ring.
The sound doesn't surprise her; lately there seem to be lots of calls coming to the house. Nothing out of the ordinary, since her parents hardly keep normal hours in what they glibly describe as assisting "haunted souls."
But there is something out of the ordinary in this call. She can feel it.
Taking the call, her parents prepare for another spectral undertaking at the ancient church at the outer limits of the town. This time something
is out of the ordinary--her parents disappear. Vanish.
Searles conjures the macabre machinations of Stephen King and even some of peculiar oddness of John Irving. He drags you in with the first pages and doesn't let you go until the final chapter. Keep the lights on for this one.
