The Judas Inheritance

by James Collins

An ancient curse? Desperation in the economic crisis? What is causing the suicides of so many adults and children on this small Greek island? When Chris Trelawney arrives on the island to take away his late father’s belongings, he finds that he has been left little more than a mystery. Was his father mad at the time of his death, or did he actually believe that he had awakened a powerful evil? An ancient evil that now stalks the islanders, growing stronger by the day. A curse that will cause the death of everyone around Chris unless he allows himself to believe that such things exist. But when he discovers the truth, Chris realises that death is the easy option.

The Judas Inheritance was inspired by the ruins of a village on the Greek island of Symi in the Dodecanese. The story is complete fiction, but I was captivated by the mysterious dates, numbers, and names that appear on many of these hauntingly strange buildings that seem to conjure up a curiosity about the lives of the people who once might have lived there. While the story is set on an imaginary island, visitors to Symi will recognise a number of features which I have borrowed.

In 2013 a motion picture adaptation of The Judas Inheritance, called The Judas Curse, was filmed in Greece. It is important to stress that film adaptations, of necessity, are often markedly different from the books on which they are based. This is the novel version of the original story before it was adapted for film.

The Sixkiller

by Marty Giacone

The town of East Fork has a murder problem.

Throughout its past, decades go by where such a crime hardly seems possible in this peaceful community. Then it happens again and, like each time before, six people have died. Behind the massacres are familiar stories of troubled lives. Betrayals such as lying or cheating grow into murderous rampages when someone, somehow, finds out the truth. In the aftermath, the same unanswered question remains. How were the secrets uncovered? Some suspect something sinister. Others seem certain. For good reason, few talk.

Jake Turner has lived his entire life in East Fork and life has never been better. At twenty-seven he’s found success, love and contentment in a place he never thought those things could exist. But when his mother dies her long-held secrets come alive with rumors of a murder and whispers of money hidden away. Some will do anything to expose the truth. Others are desperate to keep it hidden. This truth, it seems, is worth dying for.

Once again darkness descends on East Fork. Someone seeks the deadly shortcut to knowing it all, stirring up old Indian magic and its ancient protector, a vengeful spirit with a signature body count. For Jake and those around him, trust disintegrates and relationships crumble. Secrets – and survival – are on the line.

Because, in this town, when this happens, six people will die.

The Wolf Witch (The Keys Trilogy Book 1)

by Anna Roberts

Unfinished family business and a promise of paradise bring Katrina survivor Blue Beaufort to the Florida Keys, but what she finds there is beyond anything she could have imagined. At first glance her new home is nothing more than a small town in a tourist trap, unremarkable save for some unruly neighborhood dogs and a strangely high incidence of red-green colorblindness.

But then there’s the way the local boys tilt their heads when the wind a certain way, like they can smell trouble on the breeze, and while practical-minded diving instructor Gabe doesn’t seem the type to cling to superstition, he still won’t take the boat out when the moon is full.

And then there’s Gloria, a wilful seventysomething eccentric who for years has been den mother to packs of lost boys like Gabe, Joe and black sheep Charlie, but now presents them with the delicate problem of what to do with your elders when they start showing signs of dementia. Doubly difficult when Gloria – who even when healthy used to talk to people who weren’t there – shows signs of a miraculous recovery and drives all the way to Miami in her bedroom slippers.

When Blue steps in to help out, she thinks she’s going to be cleaning house and serving Jell-O and pills to an old lady, but Gloria’s house is not like other houses. The light fitting keeps swinging, and old records keep skipping, and Gloria’s miracle cure seems to have woken something in the house, a whispering entity that seeps into Blue’s dreams and starts showing her things she’d rather not see.

Like that cage in the basement.

As Blue wades deeper into the strange world of the wolf witch and her boys, she soon comes to realise that what happens at the full moon is actually the least of everyone’s worries.

The Wolf Witch is the first book in the Keys Trilogy.
