Synopses & Reviews
Jeffrey E. Barlough, acclaimed author of the weird and wonderful Dark Sleeper
, returns with a novel as charming-and chilling-as a good old-fashioned ghost story...
Strange things are afoot in the town of Shilston Upcot. A mysterious owl hovers in the sky. Mournful voices cry out for a lost child. Townsfolk are besieged by nightmares. And only one man, the reclusive squire Mark Trench, dares to investigate the strange omens to face the truth: The horror has returned.
An atmospheric tale of dark imaginings that belongs in most horror collections. (Library Journal)
Barlough combines the witty detail of Dickensian fiction with the insidious terror of Lovecraftian horror. (Library Journal)
