"Horror in the tradition of Bentley Little"
Residents of McKeesport are shaken by the four apparent
suicides and one obvious gruesome murder that haunt this
summer. Chief Detective Steve Wycoff and his staff
diligently work to uncover the truth, but are worried that
someone more sinister is behind the rash of deaths.
However, except for the homicide no evidence to prove the
theory seems to exist.
While death stalks the western Pennsylvania town, local
David Cavannah suffers horrendous nightmares. An essence
calling itself Dust seems to occupy his dreams and that
being wants to escape the electrons of David's brain in
order to enter the physical realm. Dust must be invited
into one's dreams, but only a lunatic would ask a cretin
like that to intrude the mind and soul. Now that David's
father-in-law is dead, no one alive knows how to stop Dust,
leaving it up to a possessed David and a beleaguered Steve
NIGHT TERRORS is as frightening a novel as those of
King or Little. The story line performs like a classic
horror tale, building up the suspense and fear factor of
the audience so caught up in the plot that Drew Williams
has entered the mind of the reader. The heroes seem
genuine and the malevolent villain appears real, not just a
bogeyman, leaving horror fans with a few sleepless nights.
