Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing this evil stays dead for long.

A college freshman finds herself stranded in Arizona with no place to stay and nowhere to run.

Cabin fever closes in on an isolated park ranger, as two sinister beauties lurk in the desert outside his door.

A California divorcée is starting a promising new life. But her young son knows better — because he's seen what's creeping outside the window.

A cross-country traveler is on a journey of self-discovery. But one tourist trap holds its own dreadful surprises...

Four strangers with one thing in common: a mysterious train choking the sky with black smoke, charging trackless across the American night...and carrying an unstoppable evil, raised from the bowels of history, that will bring their worst fears to life.

Review:

"In the new book by Bram Stoker Award-winner Little (Dispatch), strangers across the U.S. are each pursued by different supernatural forces as they fall into the path of a ghost train rumbling into the present day from a dark chapter in American history. Switching among characters — college freshman Angela Ramos in Flagstaff, Ariz.; divorced park ranger Henry Cote in Canyonlands National Park, Utah; Jolene, fleeing her husband to Bear Flats, Calif., with eight-year-old Skyler in tow; and Dennis Chen, on his first cross-country road trip — Little turns the screws bit by bit, bringing his unfortunate charges face to face with multiple terrors, including haunted houses, mummified zombies, a pair of succubi and a room full of jarred human body parts. The novel draws from historical record and modern-day hot-button topics, bringing to bear immigration issues from the time of the Transcontinental Railroad to the present. Readers might tire of the revolving door structure — characters switch off on a per-chapter basis — before the stories converge in northern Utah, and might find the multiple strands a bit overstuffed and under-scary; still, this novel offers Steven King-size epic horror for those with the patience for it." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"[Little] is on par with such greats as Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Peter Straub." Midwest Book Review
