Hi, Alison Buck here.
I’d like to introduce my second published work: ABIDING EVIL – a horror thriller with a strong supernatural edge, featuring ‘a truly terrifying evil presence.’
>> Here is the outline of the story:
A sleeping menace is roused deep in the darkness of the forest. For decades it grows, biding its time, reaching out to tug at the ordinary lives of those living beyond the shadow of the trees.
Their children begin to disappear.
Unaware and unsuspecting of the danger, a group of families, friends for many years, journey to a newly re-opened hotel. It stands alone in a clearing a mile or more within the forest boundary.
For some this will be their last reunion.
>> And here, the opening paragraphs:
Wind whistled through the shack’s bleached and broken clapboard walls, chilling to the bone. The lamp’s hissing flame, the only source of light, flared and guttered behind its dirty glass, an erratic dance of shadows leaping across the darkened walls.
All in black, sharp face pale in the weak light, a crouching insect of a man sat hunched over a table. With a low grunt of pleasure he leant back and smiled, lifting a small object up into the light. He turned it over and over with his long, bony fingers, silently admiring his own workmanship. It was ready.
Now the game could begin again.
The doll of roughly carved pinewood stared blankly at him, its eyes, scratched hollows, gouged across the grain. The wood felt warm in his icy fingers and, as he turned it over, he heard its voice whispering to him,
“Come and catch me. I’m waiting.”
The man gasped with pleasure. His black eyes glittered and his thin face creased into a grotesque grimace of greedy anticipation.
