With a masterful hand, author Robert Shaw paints a vivid picture of guilt and fear and how the bond of love can carry a group of close friends through a battle against a supernatural foe driven by lust and bitter jealousy. The Scare is a modern-Gothic tale reminiscent of classic horror movies such as A Nightmare on Elm Street and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The characters leap off the pages, the dialog crackles and the action rocks along at a rollicking pace. The mystery deepens as gallant teenagers Ethan Harris, his girlfriend Shay and their heroic friends follow a trail of dead bodies that seem to be coming back to life, until they find themselves tumbling down a labyrinthine path that plunges them into a hellish nightmare world.

There are evocative flashes—the stone of the Sols family crypt is “the color of bones,” teeth patter to the floor like “enamel hailstones”—and an earnest if unoriginal flogging of the supernatural arsenal (howling storms, open graves, midnight knocks, the undead).
