The Dancer in the Dark: A Novel by Thomas E. Fuller and Brad Strickland

Welcome to sultry Blankenship, Georgia, where archaeologist Benedict Peterson is excavating the mysterious Malatowa Mounds, much against the wishes of locals Jubal Elder and John MacIntosh. When eerie events unfold, Peterson asks his uncle Cletus Tremaine, of the Archaeology Department of Miskatonic University, to come south to consult. What they find is an ancient horror that will cost people their sanity, their security, their lives...and maybe even their souls.

Starts out slow but steadily builds momentum. I was completely absorbed by the end. It was really good, with several gruesome scenes reminding me of The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey.

Loved it. It is a kind of Lovecraft Mythos book, but it has its own style and its own pacing. The characters come to life, and the story gains momentum as it goes along until you just can't stop reading. What is puzzling at first becomes disturbing and then horrifying. You really care what happens to these people, and you will remember the story long after finishing it.
