A Fourth of July celebration opens a portal to an old horror that has haunted an African-American family in the Pacific Northwest since the late nineteenth century. This author's work is compared to Stephen King's. Whether the character is a French-accented Creole, a semiliterate white sheriff, an articulate African-American woman, or her teenaged son, who tries to hide his private school accent with hip-hop slang, Robin Miles never misses a beat. The creepiest aspect of the whole work is the fact that Miles gives the characters familiar voices--they sound just like us. Do not listen to this one in the dark!
