There are no words for it. Ecstasy is laughably inadequate, as are rapture, euphoria, bliss.... Ugly, harsh syllables that come nowhere near capturing the merest fraction of what he feels. The experience is primal and transcendent, like birth, like death. Hoping to regain a sense of normal family life, Scott Raymond follows his estranged wife and son to Ash Creek, Ohio under the pretense of writing a new book about a missing six-year-old girl. There, he encounters a young woman who shares the missing girl's name. She leads Scott into a world of psychotropic spiders, shark-toothed teenagers and the expression of nearly every dark desire. Fear and fascination lay equal claim as the fantasies of this realm bleed into Scott's daily life before the nightmare that bloodied his childhood will reach out to ensnare his own son. "[Tim Waggoner] plumbs the Barkered darkness with a visceral intensity that will leave you puking and grinning. The plot is compelling, intricately weaving into itself like a mobius noose, drawing the reader inwards hard against the fisted break-knot" -- Cemetery Dance "A well-written, fast-paced, horrifically gory novel...incredibly unique." --The Horror Channelshow more
