Publisher: [New York] : Hydra, 2017.
Series: Dark Screams
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : Fiction : English
Summary:
The old dude's ticker: Richard Drogan has been spooked ever since he came back from Nam, but he's no head case, dig? He just knows the old dude needs to die.

The rich are different: Even though she made her name revealing the private lives of the rich and famous, Sara Peck has no idea how deep their secrets really go . . . or the price they'll pay to get what they desire.

The manicure: A trip to the nail salon is supposed to be relaxing. But as the demons of the past creep closer with every clip, even the most serene day of pampering can become a nightmare.

The comforting voice: It's a little strange how baby Lydia can only be soothed by her grandfather's unnatural voice, ravaged by throat cancer. The weirdest part? What he's saying is more disturbing than how he says it.

The situations: There are certain lessons children must learn, rules they must follow, scars they must bear. No lesson is more important than this: Never question Daddy. Or else.

The corpse queen: Grave robbers Kierney and Clow keep one step ahead of the law as they ply their ghoulish trade, but there's no outrunning a far more frightening enemy that hungers for the dead.  Read more...

Abstract:

The old dude's ticker: Richard Drogan has been spooked ever since he came back from Nam, but he's no head case, dig? He just knows the old dude needs to die.

The rich are different: Even though she made her name revealing the private lives of the rich and famous, Sara Peck has no idea how deep their secrets really go . . . or the price they'll pay to get what they desire.

The manicure: A trip to the nail salon is supposed to be relaxing. But as the demons of the past creep closer with every clip, even the most serene day of pampering can become a nightmare.

The comforting voice: It's a little strange how baby Lydia can only be soothed by her grandfather's unnatural voice, ravaged by throat cancer. The weirdest part? What he's saying is more disturbing than how he says it.

The situations: There are certain lessons children must learn, rules they must follow, scars they must bear. No lesson is more important than this: Never question Daddy. Or else.

The corpse queen: Grave robbers Kierney and Clow keep one step ahead of the law as they ply their ghoulish trade, but there's no outrunning a far more frightening enemy that hungers for the dead.
