Professor Dan Rineheart has built his career studying art.  He has a good job and a great family.  But can he unravel the twisted mystery behind an anonymous painting before it devours his mind?

Description

YOU’RE LIVING THE DREAM…

A beautiful house, a loving wife. Two kids, a dog, and a tenure track professorship teaching art at the local university. Your name is Daniel Rineheart. You’ve got it all.

…BUT ALL DREAMS MUST END.

For this autumn heralds the arrival of a mysterious painting. No name. No date. No signature or frame. A disturbing work of grotesque perfection: two children with cruel eyes, a window onto an endless field, and a dying tree on top of a hill.

A work of art… that changes with each viewing.

SO BEGINS THE NIGHTMARE…

…Where wretched children crawl from a canvas prison to stalk the quiet halls of this happy home.

…Where painted clocks tick-tock away in the dark hours before dawn, and a missing dog whimpers from between the walls.

…Where all answers lead to a dark artist and an impossible creation, a cursed canvas with a twisted past…

…AND A HORROR THAT WILL DEVOUR ALL.

Curl up, if you dare, with a dark novel readers are calling: “Beautifully written” — “A Must Read!” — “Stunning” — “The Scariest book EVER!”

FORSAKEN is an intelligent blend of ghost story, suburban supernatural thriller, haunted house, and mystery. Perfectly written for fans of early Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Peter Straub, it’s a terrifying tale of secrets and lies, of nightmares made flesh; where the scariest stories are the ones that coldly whisper into your ear until madness and death are a welcome rest.
