Overview

A triple-feature omnibus of three suspense thrillers - Purity, The Words, and The Attraction! Three full-length novellas all packed into one cool ebook -- three of award-winner Clegg's most frightening and fascinating novellas of suspense, chills, horror and...coming of age.

In Purity, the darkest force is love. From award-winning author Douglas Clegg comes a twisting, dark psychological thriller of dangerous obsession. "Purity is a gripping, shocking story of love, turning 18 and murder." -Doubleshot Reviews

"Douglas Clegg turns the screws dexterously in this sleek, multifaceted suspense story...in a vacation paradise saturated in alcohol, entitlement and hypocrisy..." - Publisher's Weekly.

"Clegg writes gut-wrenchingly beautiful horror, painful adolescence, abuse, sociopathic alienation, and coming home - are all at play here, as are characters who play each other and themselves...for keeps."- Chizine.

In The Words, two boys discover a secret world of monsters...

When teenager Mark befriends outsider Dash, he believes his new friend to be an outcast rebel.

But a dark mystery unfolds as Dash leads Mark into dangerous games and rituals involving stories of the occult and a strange drug that allows Dash to see into another world -- a world of absolute darkness and terror.

"Your flesh will remember the words even if your mind forgets."

The Attraction: "A terrifying quick punch of horror."

The Attraction is a drive-in movie-style horror chiller of roadside terror!

The signs along the desert highway read Come See the Mystery! But some mysteries should remain buried forever -- like the terrifying creature at the back of the Brakedown Palace Gas & Sundries Emporium.
