Publisher's Summary

For many children, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and laughter. But for 10-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother. 

Three decades later, loss returns - her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to the place where she first knew pain - to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake. It’s there that Kris and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief. 

But a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown - and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return.

An 8 hour build up that fails to deliver

I really enjoyed “kill creek”, but this was nothing close. It seemed like the introduction to the characters and their situation took 8 long and drawn out hours, and made me wonder if anything was ever going to happen in this book. There were a few times that I thought the story might go in an interesting direction, but sadly, this failed to happen. Save the credit, I’m sure there is something better that would be exponentially more satisfying l.

Good story once it got going.

it took a really long time to get there... how much mundane mother/daughter time do you need?!

Exceptional!

What an exceptional writer and C. Campbell did a wonderful job as usual. Thank you, best "horror" I've read/listened to in a very long time! I look forward to more of your books

Another ghost story...

Didn’t realize this was going to be a ghost story. I strongly dislike supernatural and ghost stories. I forced myself to finish it as I paid for it.
