Widow’s Peak by Richard Chizmar & Billy Chizmar.

Richard Chizmar is one of the best horror writers around.  Many readers would agree with this reviewer. This time around Richard and his son Billy Chizmar have joined forces to give us the tale of  Widow’s Point, a lighthouse in Harper’s Cove that has been plagued with death since it’s construction in 1838, where three workers were killed, with one of them falling to his death from a catwalk. Since that time, about a dozen people have met their deaths from suicide, accidents, murder (an entire family is killed) and many people have just disappeared. Author Thomas Livingston who has written thirteen books on the supernatural is seeking a story for his next book. He agrees to spend the weekend along locked inside this tower of death with no contact with the outside world. The inhabitants of the lighthouse have other plans for this intruder.  Richard and Billy Chizmar let you know that something bad is about to happen and it’s that suspense that keeps the reader glued to the story. I should know. I read this book in one sitting. My only mistake was to read it all alone one night. I should have known better, but I just couldn’t put it down. I had to know what the ghosts had in mind for this greedy author. Soon the video camera that Livingston is using to document his ordeal starts to malfunction, only capturing audio at times. I won’t go into other gruesome details, but the Chizmar s sure do! They write in detail what happens to this man who is not wanted in the lighthouse. If you enjoy reading haunting tales, then pickup a copy of this book to read. My only advice? Read it during the day and definitely not alone at night!

I was given a copy of this book to read  in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading other material by this father and son duo. It seems that talent does run in that family!
