"At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it has remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests... When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween in one of the world's most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won't be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek."--Cover flap.

Scott Thomas’s debut horror novel “Kill Creek” reminded me of Peter Straub’s masterwork “Ghost Story,” not the least for its ambition. The plot is simple. Four horror writers, who really should know better, spend the night in a notorious haunted house as a publicity stunt. In the process, they awaken Something Horrible that is not about to let the authors simply walk away. It’s not a spoiler to say the book’s supernatural forces are real, malevolent, and about as subtle as a heavy metal object smashing into a human skull, something that happens repeatedly in these pages. Mainstream horror fans will thrill to Thomas’s cinematic touches and vivid descriptions while eagerly awaiting his next effort.
