Description

HORROR WAITS IN THE SHADOWS OF THE TREES . . . Huddled deep in the primeval Maine forest, the sleepy village of Foxblood Falls has a dark secret. Zacharias Corbitt, one of its founders, kidnapped young women he fancied and offered them up as blood sacrifices to the dread goddess the local Indians known as She-Who-Walks-in-Thunder – a malign entity known by an older and more terrible name in the fiendish Necronomicon of Abdul Alhazred. Caught in the act all through his up to date sacrifice, Corbitt used to be lynched and his body secretly buried. But he used to be a far-seeing man, and he had made plans for his eventual return – and revenge . . . Dr. Susan Clayton and Nurse Amanda Leigh Cole share a dark secret too – one which could destroy them. At the same time as vacationing in Foxblood Falls, they’re shocked when a new wave of kidnappings sweeps through the townsfolk. Incredibly, each clue of these disappearances points to Zacharias Corbitt – as does the mysterious skeleton they discover walled up in a secret room of Corbitt’s mansion; a skeleton with a stake driven through its ribs. As the bloody net of Corbitt’s long-planned vengeance sweeps them in, Susan and Amanda are threatened with the exposure of their secret. Yet that menace is swallowed up by Corbitt’s ghastly plans for them – and for the world . . . BONES is a novel of Lovecraftian horror – but told in a way Lovecraft never dreamed of! Even supposing set in 1927, it features several modern twists so that it will keep the reader guessing – until the terrible truth is after all unmasked . . .
