The Dead Boysby Royce Buckingham
Synopses & Reviews
In the desert town of Richland, Washington, there stands a giant sycamore tree. Horribly mutated by nuclear waste, it feeds on the life energy of boys that it snags with its living roots. And when Teddy Matthews moves to town, the tree trains its sights on its next victim.
From the start, Teddy knows something is very wrong with Richland-every kid he meets disappears before his eyes. A trip to the cemetery confirms that these boys are actually dead and trying to lure him to the tree. But that knowledge is no help when Teddy is swept into the tree's world, a dark version of Richland from which there is no escape . . .
In a desert town, a giant sycamore tree horribly mutated by nuclear waste feeds on the life energy of boys it snags in its living roots. And when Teddy Matthews moves to town, the tree sets its sights on its next victim.
