Waiting on Wednesday #16: Snowblind by Christopher Golden

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event,  hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I can't wait to get my hands on Snowblind by Christopher Golden. I just love a good ghost story. This one promises to be more than good. Probably will be "don't turn the lights off" good for a minimum and definitely "don't wander around in that blizzard" good. Snowblind is due out from St. Martin's Press January 21, 2014.

Stephen King: "It will bring a blizzard to your bones (and your heart) even in the middle of July.  Throw away all those old 'it was a dark and stormy night' novels; this one is the real deal."

From Goodreads: "In Christopher Golden’s first horror novel in more than a decade--a work reminiscent of early Stephen King--Snowblind updates the ghost story for the modern age.

The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards...but never one like this. Icy figures danced in the wind and gazed through children's windows with soul-chilling eyes. People wandered into the whiteout and were never seen again. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.

Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jake Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as---tonight---another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning's life has been forever scarred by the mysterious death of his wife, Cherie, and now he’s starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes. Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy . . . and the boy’s father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call . . . from a man who died twelve years ago.

As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last."

So, what book are you waiting on this week?
