"With the same kind of homespun affabilityreminiscent of the early work of Stephen King or Dan Simmons, T.J. Tranchellcrafts a compelling story of love and loss," said Thom Carnell, publisher ofthe goth culture magazine Carpe Noctem and author of "No Flesh Shall beSpared." "Full of spot-on descriptives, 'Cry Down Dark' was a fun read and atantalizing first look at a promising new writer."
From the Back Cover
Peter Toombs never stopped loving Diana Ward. Not after they broke up; not after she married someone else; not after she died. Peter never got over how he failed Diana when she needed him most when they were in college. Even as he became a successful TV writer, his failure haunted him more than the monsters he created to scare others.
His obsession prompts him to lease Diana's childhood home in the small Utah town of Bern. He's convinced that if he lives there, she will come back for him. When he sleeps, he dreams of ghosts: Diana's, the ghost he believes should be in the house, and the ghost of someone he never met. The townsfolk, however, don't like having a stranger in Bern. They have secrets they don't want Peter to learn. Secrets about Diana and her death. Secrets about Peter and the ghosts that follow him.
Joined by his friend Connor and Diana's widower Aaron, Peter must survive Bern and discover the truth behind Diana's fate. Learning the truth could exorcise the ghosts from Peter's life or it could break his heart and bring him face to face with his worst fears.
