"A complex and chilling tale of friends, family and the often murderous secrets that hide in the dark. Ronald Malfi takes you for a terrifying visit to December Park."
— Robert McCammon
by Ronald Malfi
About the Book:
In the fall of 1993, the quiet suburb of Harting Farms is shocked when children begin to vanish, and one is found dead near December Park—a great, sweeping expanse that is sunken below the streets and surrounded on three sides by vast woodlands—a place children believe is haunted.
Newspapers call the abductor the Piper because he has come to lead children away, while kids whisper darker names for him in the school halls. Angelo Mazzone and his friends discover a link to the dead girl and take up the search for the killer, vowing to stop the Piper's reign of terror.
Their teenage pledge becomes a journey of self-discovery and an odyssey into the darkness of their own hometown...

Ronald Malfi is the IPPY award–winning and Bram Stoker–nominated author of twelve novels including Snow, Cradle Lake, The Narrows, The Ascent, Shamrock Alley, Floating Staircase, and several others. Malfi's dark fiction is stylized by "lyrical prose and [a] sensitive approach," according Publishers Weekly, and he is most recognized for his haunting, literary style and memorable characters. He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1977, and has since relocated to Maryland, where he lives along the Chesapeake Bay with his wife and daughter. It's a safe bet that he is currently at work on his next novel.
