US Marshal Virgil Bone finds himself amongst the Isle’s isolated community – a community that shares a horrific past that still taints their daily life. Mistrusted and clearly unwelcome from the onset, Bone struggles to do his job, which was supposed to be the simple collection of a fugitive’s dead body. Now he’s stranded, surrounded by secrets and a rising death toll. If only he wasn’t met with aggression, then maybe he could help save lives.
Fifteen tales where Halloween costumes prove to be more than what they appear, where leviathans lurk beneath the ice, where murderous impulses overtake the unsuspecting, and where human beings are the very monsters to fear.
