Publisher's Summary

A once-respected college professor and novelist, Dale Stewart has sabotaged his career and his marriage - and now darkness is closing in on him. In the last hours of Halloween, he has returned to the dying town of Elm Haven, his boyhood home, where he hopes to find peace in isolation. But moving into a long-deserted farmhouse on the far outskirts of town - the one-time residence of a strange and brilliant friend who lost his young life in a grisly "accident" back in the terrible summer of 1960 - is only the latest in his long succession of recent mistakes. Because Dale is not alone here. He has been followed to this house of shadows by private demons who are now twisting his reality into horrifying new forms. And a thick, blanketing early snow is starting to fall.

Sequel to "Summer of Night" - Read it First!

As noted above this was the sequel, and I would recommend you read/listen to it first as there are a lot of references to it here.

This book was like discovering an old photo album and re-uniting with friends you hadn't seen since childhood. Reliving the incidents of the kids' summer was great and reminded me of old school holidays when you were pretty much left to yourself all day.

Dale has grown up now and returns to the house of one of his friends to write about that summer. We are re-introduced to background characters who now play pivotal roles in the town and Dale is never quite sure who to trust. Enjoy it, I did!

Good low key follow-up to Summer of Night.

Interesting, if not particularly scary story, well paced with an excellent perfomance by Bronson Pinchot.
