History is dust, he reminded himself. No matter how thoroughly you wipe it away, it always returns to settle. Past and present were coming together. That which had passed, that which should have been dead. The ...

Overview

Lee Thomas burst onto the literary scene with his Bram Stoker Award-winning first novel, Stained. Now, the promise of that remarkable debut has come to fruition with this compulsively readable tale of past sin and present-day redemption.

History is dust, he reminded himself. No matter how thoroughly you wipe it away, it always returns to settle. Past and present were coming together. That which had passed, that which should have been dead. The dust had returned. Welcome back . . . to Wonderland.

Ken Nicholson never saw himself returning to New Orleans, but the attack on his college-age son has drawn him. Not just to his home and to his family, but to the mistakes of his own tortured life. Divorced and now fully admitting to his homosexuality, Ken must now confront an evil he thought was long buried. A killer has taken his son and has threatened to take even more: his ex-wife, his former lover, and the very notion of his past. Years ago, the mysterious owner of a club named Wonderland claimed Ken as his own, only to die in violent fashion. Today, a killer knows far too much about that tragic night at Wonderland, leaving Ken desperate for answers, desperate to stay alive.

With its unsettling sense of menace, The Dust of Wonderland will seduce you with its Southern charms as it frightens you to your core.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Stoker-winner Thomas (Stained) delivers an intermittently eloquent supernatural tale reminiscent of Peter Straub's Ghost Story. Kenneth Nicholson returns to New Orleans when a late-night call from his ex-wife breaks the tragic news that their son, Bobby, is in a coma, after being bludgeoned by an unknown assailant. As he waits for encouraging medical news, Nicholson gets visions that suggest the possible return of an old evil that was responsible for several gory deaths at a gay lounge popularly referred to as Wonderland. The operator of that club, Nicholson's lover Travis Brugier, was believed dead, but Nicholson begins to wonder if his spirit has resurfaced, possibly in the form of Bobby's attractive girlfriend, Vicki Bach. Thomas's writing is somewhat erratic but often quite good, offering further promise that Thomas could emerge as a leading voice of modern horror. (Aug.)

    The Dust of Wonder Land

    Ken returns to New Orleans when his ex-wife calls him about his son's attack. Coming back to New Orleans returns memories of Travis and their haunting time together at Wonderland. Ken is divorced and holds no illusions of being in a relationship. But, he is soon faced with his ex, David, and the choice between him or his family.
    Lee Thomas writes a horrifying tale from beginning to end. I loved this book! It got me from page one and I didn't want to put it down! This is a really, really great read!
