Cane River made me fear my own back yard. --Kyra Schon, Night of the Living Dead
Cane River will make your blood run cold as author Scott A. Johnson gives us yet another reason to be afraid of the dark. Page-turning terror! --Steve--Uncle Creepy--Barton, DreadCentral.com
The story was creepy and unsettling and left me completely cold. Seriously, ice water in my veins kind of cold. It gave me the shivers, which isn't easy to do! I'm a big fan of ghost stories, and this is a stellar example. Rooted in American soil, but definitely containing an element of the more disturbing Asian ghost tales. The image of Madison will, without a doubt, continue to haunt anyone who reads it long after they've put down the book. She was both sympathetic and horrifying at the same time. Beautiful, haunting and ultimately terrifying. It's a ghost story no horror fan will want to miss. --Morgan Ploutz, Reviewer, The Horror Channel

Soon, several local boys turn up missing including the son of Bill's new girlfriend. Bill, and other townspeople have been seeing the apparition of a terrifying little girl, staring at them with a wicked smile on her face. What does this little girl have to do with Bill and his family? Johnson's story is delicately paced and he leaves you guessing until the very end as to the spirit's true intentions. The scares are subtle but build in intensity as the story progresses. Well crafted example of a true American ghost story!
