Overview

In Random, Illinois, not much has changed in the last century. Things there move more slowly than they do in the city. At times, history seems to be moving in reverse. That’s how it seems; some folks would say that’s how it is.

For Jason, Frank, Ronnie and Lizzy, there are bits and pieces of the past that won’t go away. Not in the daylight world, and not in their dreams. They shared a secret, a bond of silence and guilt. They shared the memory of an old woman’s dry, crackling voice, the heat and sizzling terror of flames beyond their control, and the mesmerizing image of a handful of bones.

Roll Them Bones is a story of closure. It is a twisting, twining mystery that refuses to make sense, bringing four children who’d grown apart in adulthood back for one last chapter. Halloween Past – Halloween present – and who’s to say which is more real?

Her eyes Haunt them.

Her voice follows them through their nightmares.

The flames lick up from below with the slow promise of destruction.

"For an evil heart, no deed atones, to know the future? Roll them bones..."

Big Ronnie demands his three childhood associates, who became his friends after the incident bonded them, Jason, Frank, and Lizzy return home to Random, Illinois to complete what they started years ago. They thought that had destroyed the horror, but as Ronnie has informed them, they failed to finish the job. This Halloween they must achieve what they did not do when they were preadolescents.------ Though years have passed, the incident when they were twelve years old still haunts each of them. Thus the trio race home to Ronnie¿s summoning. It has wrecked one¿s marriage and permeates every word of the horror novelist amongst them. Now the quartet knows they must confront it again, but each is wary as they know they ROLL THE BONES for the second time, but this time luck may not be with them and if not they will roll death.------ Readers will wonder from the start what did the foursome confront as kids and will meet shortly as adults. The tension builds up until the altercation, but then picks up even more suspense until the final watery climax. David Niall Wilson cleverly keeps the audience off balance for a while wondering if this is a psychological thriller or supernatural chiller until the author brings the readers and the quartet into the beginnings of the confrontation. ROLL THEM BONES is a magnificent tale about for some you can¿t go home while others may have physically left but never mentally departed.---- Harriet Klausner
