Snowblind from the Author: Christopher Golden. In Christopher Golden's first horror novel in more than a decade---a work reminiscent of early Stephen King---Snowblind updates the ghost story for the modern age. The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards . . . but never one like this. Icy figures danced in the wind and gazed through children's windows with soul-chilling eyes. People wandered into the whiteout and were never seen again. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same. Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jake Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as---tonight---another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning's life has been forever scarred by the mysterious death of his wife, Cherie, and now he's starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes. Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy . . . and the boy's father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call . . . from a man who died twelve years ago. As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last. Spellbinding in scope and rooted deeply in classic storytelling, Christopher Golden has written a chilling masterpiece that is the best work of his career and a standout supernatural thriller. With richly textured characters, scarred and haunted by the ghosts of those they loved most, Snowblind is rooted deeply in classic storytelling. Christopher Golden has written a chilling masterpiece that is both his breakout book and a standout supernatural thriller.

Ari is dragged straight into the heart of a community where he can trust no one, and secrets and lies are a way of life.

Snow Blind from the Author: Lori Armstrong. The PI business is sluggish during the frigid winter months. When a young woman hires Wells/Collins Investigations to poke around at her grandfather’s assisted living facility, we expect a routine case. But my partner Kevin and I immediately spot major problems at the complex with lax security, unqualified healthcare personnel and a shady senior citizen volunteer agency. Meanwhile, a blizzard traps me at the Collins ranch alone with my father, leaving me no escape from the biting cold and my bitter memories. After I return from snowbound hell, I learn that our client’s grandfather wandered off during the blizzard. Questions arise about who inherits the dead man’s sizeable estate, and Kevin and I fear we’ve been snowed. As if that’s not enough to make my blood boil, a missing ranch hand’s body is unearthed on my dad’s land, forcing me to examine my family loyalty. And when Tony Martinez’s power struggles within the Hombres’ organization places us both in mortal danger, I question whether I’ve been blinded to the cold hard truths in my life by love or by hate. As I plow through secrets and lies, my discovery chills me to the bone and I realize someone wants to put the past—and me—on ice permanently.

Snowblind from the Author: Daniel Arnold. In this powerful debut story collection, veteran travel writer and adventurer Dan Arnold brings to life the men and women whose lives are defined by the call of the mountain. From varied backgrounds with diverse perspectives, the characters that populate Snowblind don’t feel quite whole until they’ve summited some of the world’s most dangerous peaks—an obsession that most of us just can’t fathom. A young climber walks a hotel hallway passing rooms filled with things but no people—rucksacks, jackets, sleeping bags, crampons and ice screws strewn across the beds and floors. Later he will explain to his fellow climbers what it’s like to disconnect his harness and leave his fallen partner to die alone in a blizzard. A woman climber, isolated and alone in the mountains, calculates the risks of walking back to civilization after her pilot doesn’t arrive for their scheduled pickup. It’s the seemingly quiet moments like these in Arnold’s stories that create such satisfying tension. Snowblind is a dose of old world adventure writing made modern for a new generation fascinated by the mystique of climbing. For both serious climbers and those who may never use a pair of crampons, the thrill of these stories, complete with triumphs and tragedies, makes for an incredible vicarious experience.

Snow Blind from the Author: Douglas Kalajian. "The defender had become a defendant, facing a long prison term. He came as close to utter ruin as any human can. So did his wife. This is also her story, and the story of many others like her. [This book] follows them through an over-whelming challenge to their lives and marriage. It isn't just about recovery from addiction; it's about the recovery of the human spirit. The proof of Howard's redemption would lie in what he could do for others. As long as he held on to that purpose, he had nothing to fear from cocaine - and as [this book] shows, Howard was determined to hold on with all his might"--Page 4 of cover.
