Publisher's Summary

In the town of Broad Run, West Virginia...

Vance Archer and Marybeth Wilkins, a pair of adventurous seventh-graders, have discovered an exciting activity called geocaching - a kind of scavenger hunt using GPS technology - that leads them after hidden treasures in the woods around their community. However, on one of their outings, they encounter a frightening, half-seen creature with glowing red eyes watching them from the shadows. 

Soon, Vance begins to receive mysterious messages on his phone from a caller named Indrid Cold. He learns this name is associated with the legendary Mothman, a strange, unearthly being that is said to appear when some terrible event is about to occur. 

Believing that they - as well as their friends and loved ones - may soon face mortal danger, Vance and Marybeth try to solve the increasingly strange clues before disaster strikes.

Each Ameri-Scares novel is based on or inspired by an historical event, folktale, legend, or myth unique to that particular state.

3 of my favorite things!

A mystery, a monster, geocaching. Three of my passions. Was excited to find a book that combined all three and it did not disappoint. Even better, it's written so that if you know nothing about geocaching or the Mothman you can still read it because it provides all the background you need even before the story begins. I highly recommend it!

Excellent adventure

I enjoyed this telling of the Mothman legend immensely. The pieces of the story are meticulously laid out in a subplot that is interesting and relevant. I have enjoyed several titles by this author. His imagination of the surreal and supernatural are quite inventive and entertaining. I’m searching for more.
