Chasing the Dead
A NoveleBook - 2006
"You have a very lovely little girl", breathed the voice on the phone. And just like that, Susan Young is drawn into a living nightmare. A stranger has kidnapped her daughter, Veda. But he doesn't want her money, only her suffering--and he will kill Veda if Sue doesn't follow his every command. With detailed instructions, the faceless abductor leads Sue into a blinding snowstorm on the longest night of the year, to a place she has not traveled to since childhood. The voice on the other end of the line somehow knows Sue's deepest, most chilling secret--an ominous incident from her past, buried long ago ... Across the loneliest back roads of Massachusetts, in the black expanse of a New England winter, Sue is forced to confront her most awful fears as she is met at each step by ever increasing horrors created by a monster who is surely something less than human. In the hope of saving her daughter from a kidnapper whose origin seems darker than anything she could ever have imagined, Sue will discover just how much trauma and fright the human body is capable of absorbing.
