Publisher's Summary

Some family secrets should go to the grave. In the tiny town of Milnor, North Dakota, Adam struggles to bring some measure of normalcy to his life, after a tragic event left him confined to a wheelchair, 21 years earlier. 

His sister, Ada, fills his days with psychological torment and disappears for days at a time. Is it sibling rivalry, or something more sinister? A psychiatrist, in his relentless search for the truth, gets caught up in the unexpected. Splinter will keep you guessing right to the end!

Splinter will get under your skin

What made the experience of listening to splinter the most enjoyable?

It is a good old fashioned creep-you-out kind of story. I think it's perfect for an audiobook.

What other book might you compare splinter to and why?

It sorry of has the vibe of Psycho

What does JK Carpenter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice is compelling. It has that mysterious tone and delivery. I found myself listening to it while closing my eyes. I loved it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

For me it was the encounter with Dr. Bader and Dr. Vann in the small cafe. You just knew that something ill-fated was going to follow.

Any additional comments?

This short story is really, really good. The characters are believeable and it's keeps you guessing throughout. The narration is great!
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and recommend this book to anyone who loves a creepy tale.
