It’s not often that we make direct recommendations here at Dread Central, but when we find out that a protégé of the great Daniel Knauf (“Carnivale,” “Dracula”) is releasing a novel, we cannot help but sit up and listen.
Below you’ll find a Kindle link for a book called The Widow’s Game by Maddie Von Stark, and at just $2.99 for a large sampling of her upcoming novel, you really cannot go wrong. So go ahead. Add some spooky to your mobile device. It is the Halloween season after all!
The Widow’s Game is the first four chapters of Maddie Holliday Von Stark’s forthcoming debut novel of the same name. In it Maddie, a former FBI agent, her career ended by a protracted illness, seeks a peaceful new life in her small Wisconsin hometown as a teacher at a parochial high school. That peace is shattered by a series of bizarre murders which drag her down a deadly rabbit hole of witchcraft, deceit, child abuse, and a secret cabal of sexual sadists. Maddie soon finds herself in the killer’s cross-hairs. To survive, she must rely on her wits, courage, fortitude, and a little help from her invisible but all-too-present companion: a lethal, shark-toothed demon called Belial.
If you dig it, review it! From what we hear, Von Stark is one tough cookie. Let us know!
