Those Across the River

Those Across the River - Christopher Buehlman Haunted by memories of the Great War, failed academic Frank Nichols and his wife have arrived in the sleepy Georgia town of Whitbrow, where Frank hopes to write a history of his family’s old estate—the Savoyard Plantation—and the horrors that occurred there. At first their new life seems to be everything they wanted. But under the façade of summer socials and small-town charm, there is an unspoken dread that the townsfolk have lived with for generations. A presence that demands sacrifice.

It comes from the shadowy woods across the river, where the ruins of the Savoyard Plantation still stand. Where a long-smouldering debt of blood has never been forgotten.

American Southern Gothic at its best, as one reviewer said, if Tennessee Williams wrote literary horror....

A slow burning tale that will stay with you for days by a phenomenal writer.
