Overview

Previously published by Pinnacle Books.

The residents of a small town learn that the secret to immortality is murder.

Welcome to Anderson. It's quiet here and that's how we like it. Except....

Madge Duffy sliced her husband's throat last week. Thought she'd killed him, but then he strolled right out of the morgue without a scratch.

The new preacher's calling it a "miracle," but I don't know. It isn't right.

I think there might be other people coming back, too.

Deputy Haws has got a bullet hole in his one good shirt, and he won't talk about how it got there.

Then there's that gang of kids that hangs around the reservoir. Not one of them can look you in the eye without breaking into a cold sweat. They're keeping a secret, and it's got them all on edge.

Something's going on in this town of ours, something that makes your skin crawl and your teeth grind in the night. I don't know what it is, but I know this:

It scares me.

NOTE: Contains profanity, violence, no explicit sex.

ALSO by Jan Strnad: ONE LAST TIME. Love, revenge, reconciliation, murder... everything is possible when the dead return to visit the living "one last time."

Editorial Reviews

This is a superbly written horror story. I wonder why its author is not as successful as King and Koontz. In my opinion, he is just as good of a writer, if not better. I'm a huge fan of Peter Straub's "Ghost Story," which is the best novel involving ghosts I have ever read. While trying to find another great ghost story, I came across this novel. I had doubts I would like it but have been very, very pleasantly surprised.
