On an isolated ridge in the Kentucky woods stands a homemade lighthouse, hundreds of miles from any substantial body of water. Local reporter Roy Darmus has always found it an amusing oddity--until he is selected as the recipient of a suicide note from its builder. Roy soon has a storytelling assignment more daunting than anything he''s seen before.
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?

Praise

"[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." - Marilyn Stasio 06/05/2011

"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." - David Pitt 05/15/2011
