Don't miss the thrilling novel from #1 New York Times bestselling award-winning author Robert McCammon, in a book that Publishers Weekly calls "both a mystery that will satisfy the most finicky aficionado and a boisterous travelogue."

Zephyr, Alabama, is an idyllic hometown for eleven-year-old Cory Mackenson--a place where monsters swim the river deep and friends are forever. Then, one cold spring morning, Cory and his father witness a car plunge into a lake--and a desperate rescue attempt brings his father face-to-face with a terrible vision of death that will haunt him forever.

As Cory struggles to understand his father's pain, his eyes are slowly opened to the forces of good and evil that are manifested in Zephyr. From an ancient, mystical woman who can hear the dead and bewitch the living, to a violent clan of moonshiners, Cory must confront the secrets that hide in the shadows of his hometown--for his father's sanity and his own life hang in the balance.

I truly hated to finish this book.
Definitely, a page turner.
From the days of innocence passed,
through the eyes of inquisitive young boys, a terrific read.
You'll thank me ;)

This is my absolute favorite book ever. I have read it nearly once a year. I laughed and I cried and it ended and I just wanted more.
