Publisher's Summary

Paul Gallo saw the report on the news: a mass murderer leading police to his victims' graves in remote Dread's Hand, Alaska.
It's not even a town; more like the bad memory of a town. The same bit of wilderness where his twin brother went missing a year ago. As the bodies are exhumed, Paul travels to Alaska to get closure and put his grief to rest.
But the mystery is only beginning. What Paul finds are superstitious locals who talk of the devil stealing souls, and a line of wooden crosses to keep what's in the woods from coming out. He finds no closure because no one can explain exactly what happened to Danny.
And the more he searches for answers, the more he finds himself becoming part of the mystery...

"An elegant, twisted, gripping slow-burn of a novel that burrows under the skin and nestles deep.” (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick)

Best part of the book was a mini background story

There was a story near the end that was creepier than the rest of the book. I wanted more of that story than what I got in the book. The writer is good and I will look for more of their work based solely on the mini background story near the end. I wished I got a better pay-off than what we got. The narrator was amazing although I was hesitant at first, Charles Constant proved me wrong.

Excellent! Atmospheric and creepy.

"They're all dead now. I killed them."

An excellent work of dark fiction from Mr. Malfi. You can feel the chill of this one in your bones. Atmospheric and creepy.
