Travis Coble didn’t kill and eat his family. At least that’s what a jury decided twenty years ago. But like Lizzie Borden, Travis Coble was branded guilty by an angry public and consigned to a life of suspicious whispers and sidelong stares. Now, Professor Dick Myers wants to clear Travis’s name once and for all. An interview with the reclusive mountain man would not only bring Myers fame—it could save his job.
But Myers will find more than a good story in Coble’s isolated shack in the Smoky Mountains. He will find the truth about what happened twenty years ago…and the true meaning of horror. (Goodreads)
This was a super short story, but an extremely well written old school horror. I really enjoyed this story, while short, the author was still able to make his characters interesting and even added depth to them. Some of the most refreshing usage of vocabulary that I have seen in a long time. Excellent super creepy horror story, with an ending that you might think you see coming, but with a surprising twist.
I highly recommend this for adult horror fans. I have already added more books by this author to my to-read list!
