readers will enjoy this frightful horror thriller
In Northern Minnesota, Wyatt and Opal Larkin own and manage a small motel in trouble as the new Super 8 chain is just off the highway and being Christmas Eve in a remote part of the state, business is nonexistent. The two Larkin's always look back to two decades ago when two psychopaths entered a restaurant and started shooting. They wounded Wyatt and pregnant Opal.
Their nineteen year old son Adam runs out of gas. Slightly older Vera Coffey picks him up. She conceals from her passenger that she stole the Tartarus Stone compass to hell from Dr. Horus Whiteside. He sends his horrific horde the Pitch after her. At the motel, Vera joins the Larkin family in what probably will prove a one way ticket to hell for the foursome.
Fast paced with a frozen tundra atmosphere enhancing a sense of imminent doom, readers will enjoy this frightful horror thriller. Although readers will anticipate what next as the plot has few surprises, the suspenseful story line still grips the audience as High Noon with evil comes to a small motel in Northern Minnesota.

Be Afraid of The Dark
This is a pretty good thriller that grips you with tingly fingers. It covers some old ground, well trodden in many thrillers, but also unearths some new soil that leaves the reader with the smell and lingering taste of the darkness deep in your throat. You won't be able to sleep without that nightlight for a while after reading this book. If you're looking for a story filled with thrills and action, this should fit the bill. The book is written in a style that easily draws you into it's twisted off kilter world, taking you to a white Christmas you'll never want to dream about. After all the build up and anticipation, I did feel the denouement was a little weak. Otherwise, a well written and interesting chiller of a thriller.
