In Thomas Cater’s new supernatural thriller, “Scary Creek” (published by Archway Publishing), photojournalist Charlie Case returns home from the bloody battlefield of news reporting to find an even bloodier old mansion determined to trap wayward souls – unless Charlie can set them free.

Charlie Case buys an abandoned coal baron’s mansion in Appalachia. He is surprised when he discovers that the ghosts of the baron and his blind daughter, Elinore, currently occupy the house along with a variety of evil, screaming things.

A bloodthirsty wall within the house drinks the blood of its victims to sustain its power, and Charlie does not plan on joining the menagerie of tortured spirits inside the mansion. To cease the horror of the place, he must return Elinore’s missing child and find a way for the spirits to escape. Only then will they find eternal peace; only then will Charlie discover what’s his.

Cater hopes that, from his book, readers gain “a glimpse of a separate reality, another way of looking at the world and yourself and others, a little knowledge, a laugh or two, and a line or a word a reader enjoys and thinks about in (their) spare time.”
