There’s something horrifically dark and biblical about the murders, occurring house by house and involving first-born sons. Only the Sheltons dare remain in the village of Zebulon, Virginia, on the night of Passover, with only the county’s small sheriff’s department to protect them from a baffling evil stirred up by the holocaust of another era. Proceeded by a re-emergence of the biblical plagues that beset Egypt, a tormented and pain-wracked ghost storms the bloodied windows and doors of the Shelton’s huge home with Death Angel fury. Characters fall, one by one, scarecrows from the fields become automatons whose fingers spout flame. Cats die and re-animate.

The Sheltons have resources: intelligence, a dedicated sheriff, a grandmother’s wisdom and revelations about the supernatural, but can the family learn to work together by nightfall? Passover is a beautifully written modern novel in real time, covering the day and early evening. It is not only a supernatural thriller; it is also a domestic drama, a study of fear, and a love story featuring an eldest son and a young ghost that will charm. Authors Frances Williams and Robert P. Arthur convince us that valor and logic can only bring us so far, and faith can bring us home.
