Overview

From Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of Afterlife, Purity, The Words, Dark of the Eye and many others, comes a novel of unimaginable terror and heart-pounding suspense and supernatural horror. What secrets lie within the ancient place known as the Goat Dance?

"Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."
-- Dean Koontz

In winter, in the mountains, a darkness envelopes a town...a house on the edge of a lake holds the key to its horrifying secret.

A Haunted Lake . . .

Seven-year-old Teddy Amory should have died that winter's day on Clear Lake, when she fell through the ice while skating with her older brother, Jake. But something got inside her that day . . . something terrifying . . .

"Douglas Clegg knows exactly what scares us, and he knows just how to twist those fears into hair-raising chills..." - Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series.

A Haunted Town . . .

Nightmarish forces lurk in the mountains of Virginia, and a shadowy darkness has begun to spread like a shroud over the living.

Those long-dead return in nightmares, but does someone – or something -- control these horrifying visions from within the mysterious halls of the Marlowe-Houston House on the edge of Clear Lake?

Now a young man named Coffey returns to Pontefract, Virginia, to find the woman he lost – and a town must face its terrifying past as a possessed child threatens to unleash an unspeakable horror . . .

"Goat Dance is a dark, mesmerizing delight!" – Robert McCammon, author of The Queen of Bedlam and Swan Song.

A terrifying chiller of a horror novel from a master of gothic thrillers.

This novel was plenty gruesome but drawn out a little too long. More time was spent on trying to describe gross details than actually developing the story.

slow confused start. I didn't get past the first few chapters.

There's something to be said for 80's horror novels. Had some massive giggles over the mentioning of workout videos and the Walkman. The plot is one you've seen before but still has some really good moments.
