Peel back our comfortable outer layer and we are all the same: raw and vulnerable.
Idyllic Askergan County is battered by an ice storm that downs a local power line and puts residents on the verge of freezing. Following the death of their father, three brothers drag their families to the outskirts of the rural Northeastern County despite the storm.
Isolated and afraid, the Lawrences’ holiday quickly turns hostile, and their buried secrets slowly surface: addiction, remorse, depression.
Soon, the County is blanketed in darkness, and the Sheriff and his two deputies find themselves desperately trying to keep the entire town from collapsing.
Struggling to survive, Oxford, Jared, and Cody Lawrence, along with the local police department, descend on a place lost in the storm–one that houses a brooding evil unearthed by the blizzard and threatens to not only destroy the Lawrences, but to devour all of Askergan County whole.
In his gripping thriller about family, desperation, and pure evil, Logan is unrelenting in guiding the reader into the depths of depravity–and the consequences of impossible decisions.
