You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.

A dead girl walks the streets.

She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret – one that would just kill to get out.

The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as “Dexter” meets “The Grudge”, based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.

Christy is a superhero who spends her days saving the lives of those who live in her small town and her nights with a book in her hands. Okay, a superhero may be a bit of a stretch, she's just a nurse who loves to read.

    Creeeeepy! Can't wait to read it, things like The Grudge and The Ring and Bloody Mary scare the crap out of me, haha. Give me gored and blood and serial killers, sure. Give me something psychological and noooooooooo.
