"[A] freshly imagined and elegantly constructed variation on the dead-of-night ghost story....[R]eaders are swept along by Koryta's narrative voice, which is surprisingly soft and low and poetically insinuating, considering the horrors he's relating."
"Koryta, who's been a newspaper reporter and a private investigator, gets deep inside the minds of his protagonists, and the story is intriguing and frequently spooky."
From the Publisher
Annotation When small-town Kentucky Sheriff Kevin Kimble and local newspaper reporter Roy Darmus receive correspondences from Wyatt French, the keeper of an oddly land-locked lighthouse who just committed suicide, the two men find themselves enveloped in a supernatural mystery that connects myriad past crimes and tragedies. Meanwhile on the adjacent property, Audrey Clark reports that the wild animals in her large-cat sanctuary have been acting unusually skittish. Has some kind of evil been released? And what keys to stopping the oncoming storm of violence does the lighthouse contain?
