A sleeping menace is roused deep in the darkness of the forest. For decades it grows, biding its time, reaching out to tug at the ordinary lives of those living beyond the shadow of the trees.
Their children begin to disappear.
Unaware and unsuspecting of the danger, a group of families, friends for many years, journey to a newly re-opened hotel. It stands alone in a clearing a mile or more within the forest boundary.
For some this will be their last reunion.
"Alison Buck's writing gives us a fresh perspective on horror. She combines timeless themes of good and evil with a very contemporary concern for genuinely believable characers. Abiding Evil is a sinister tale informed by psychological insight, wit and a style of writing that breathes life into the protagonists. This is a dark story that can make your blood run cold and yet also touch your heart. It is a chilling book which will appeal as much to fans of psychological drama as it will to lovers of traditional horror."
Although, as a rule, she concerns herself with apparently quite normal, everyday characters, populating what appear to be quite normal and everyday surroundings, the events and dangers they encounter soon draw them away from the commonplace and lead them inexorably towards often frightening and sometimes bloody outcomes.
Alison's can be very dark, unsettling tales.
