BLOG TOUR: Firefly Rain by Richard Dansky (Book Review 2010-63)

Product Description

When Jacob left home for a new life, he pretty much forgot all about Maryfield, North Carolina. But Maryfield never forgot him. Or forgave him. After a failed business venture in Boston, Jacob Logan comes back to the small Southern town of his childhood and takes up residence in the isolated house he grew up in. Here, the air is still. The nights are black. And his parents are buried close by. It should feel like home—but something is terribly wrong.
Jacob loses all his belongings in a highway accident. His car is stolen from his driveway, yet he never hears a sound. The townspeople seem guarded and suspicious. And Carl, the property caretaker with so many secrets, is unnervingly accommodating. Then there are the fireflies that light the night skies . . . and die as they come near Jacob’s home. If it weren’t for the creaking sounds after dark, or the feeling that he is being watched, Jacob would feel so alone. He shouldn’t worry. He’s not.
And whatever’s with him isn’t going to let him leave home ever again.

I have to say this is an overall good ghost story in the realm of Stephen King.  There were a few pages where I thought the writing didn't flow as well as it could, but the author soon got back on track and became very believable.  The ending has a nice twist that I didn't guess and that gets high points in my book.  I kept expecting the the theme from the Twilight Zone to be playing in the background.
