River (Cemetery Dance Novella Series #13)
by Rick Hautala
About the Book:
The lucky number thirteenth entry in Cemetery Dance's novella series — a brand new novella written exclusively for the series by Rick Hautala!
After the death of his wife, Ben Skillings is a man on the edge. Haunted by grief and unable to sleep, he spends most of his nights sitting on a park bench on the river's edge. But there are things that happen late at night in the town of Northbrook, Maine... Things that come out of the river after dark... Things that no living person should see. And when Ben sees them — even if he can't be sure whether or not they're real — they're certainly real enough to come after him. They're real enough to want to make him become one of them and join them as they prowl the night.
