Dark Matters By Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

October 11th -19th

In an isolated house at the edge of a cornfield, in the mountains of Virginia, something almost beyond belief is happening to the Cleary family. When Bridget Cleary goes missing, in the dead of the night, her husband Michael and son, Jeremy, scramble to help Sheriff Richard Egan find her. Then, as suddenly as she vanished, Bridget reappears, talking about strange visitations and otherworldly beings. Is she lying? Or are supernatural forces at work? Dark Matters is a suspense thriller about the secrets that hold families together and the terrible truths we sometimes choose to ignore in the people we love.
