Voices slam through the corridor of his wounded mind. The words of his dead sister cry out. His parents' taunts fill the silent room where he sits and waits - waits for the murderous rage, filling him with strength, driving him to kill, to touch the cold flesh, taste the warm blood - to feel alive again.... A witness has seen him, but his killing only turns her on and now she wants to protect him. His wife suspects him, but the private detective she hired cannot stop him. Joe MacAree fears nothing - except that he may no longer be human.

Most of us have suffered some abuse or neglect in our formative years. We can escape the resulting low self-esteem and feelings of shame through drugs, alcohol, and/or dysfunctional love connections. Or we can try to find meaning through more positive channels: art, religion, sports, service to others, etc. Carol's restless spirit and attempt to escape her past inspired her to travel to San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district on a motorcycle in 1966. Eventually, she would journey from North Carolina to the Yukon Territories, from Nova Scotia to Victoria, BC.

Devil’s Backbone dirt road weaves through tall East Texas trees. The eerie Claymore mansion sits silently along the path. Thirteen-year-old Kevin Bishop and friends plan to spend their summer swimming, playing baseball, and erecting a massive fort in the nearby woods. Their daily journey requires a bike ride down that road and by that mansion - the site of a gruesome unsolved murder near the turn-of-the-century. They stumble upon evidence to solve the mystery as unforeseen adversaries make this a summer they’ll ever forget.

I totally enjoyed this trip to the past.I was the same age as these kids doing similar things in 1979,so it was very relatable. Town kids find something buried in the woods when they dig to build a fort.They start looking into it and a haunted house and things get mighty sticky! Eddie Frierson was a fine narrator for this book.

Imagine being knocked over by a strange old man on a cold London morning. The man delivers a garbled message about the queen. Moments later he falls under the wheels of a train. The media calls it suicide, but you know better - something doesn't quite add up. That was the start of the day for John Daniel, a foreign professional working in the city of London.
