Bethany's Sin is a tiny, picturesque village in rural Pennsylvania. Its tree-lined streets, beautiful houses, and manicured exteriors offer - or appear to offer - both peace and a place of refuge. Evan Reid, a man haunted by his memories of the Vietnam War and by a history of viscerally disturbing dreams, comes to the village with his wife and daughter, hoping to make a fresh start after a series of discouraging setbacks. At first, all goes as planned.
Evan resumes his career as a freelance writer while his wife, Kay, begins teaching math at a local college. But there are things going on in Bethany's Sin that no one wants to talk about: unexplained disappearances, houses that stand strangely vacant, half glimpsed figures that appear to be female, the impossible sound of hoof beats in the night. At the center of it all stands a single imposing woman: Dr. Kathryn Drago, a scholar and community leader who holds the key to the mysteries that enshroud the town.

All New Meaning to Battle of the Sexes!
It was thrilling, terrifying and well written. I read the story in print years ago and was pleasantly surprised that it did not seem terribly dated. This was written more than 30 years ago so some of the themes you've seen before but this just might be where they were born. I highly recommend this especially for horror fans. Mr. McCammon's energy, imagination and writing skills teamed with Ray Porter's performance makes this a winner.
I would not dare to change a word of this gem, including the title.
