Gerald Costlow lives in Michigan, USA, surrounded by his wife and dogs and grandchildren. He has had numerous short stories published in magazines, anthologies, and webzines. This is his first published novel but definitely not the last.
The Appalachian Mountains hold mysteries galore for the unwary and the full moon increases the danger as Jessie Corman is bound to find out. Anna May Sherritt and her granny know all about the call and how folks often disappear. Can they save Jessie and solve the disappearances?
Review: Until I received this book of anthologies I'd not come across Gerald Costlow's writing before. But make no mistake, this is an author to watch out for in the future.
His capacity for building suspense within the genteel family environment Anna May Sherritt and her granny live in. And the final twist... well you'll just have to buy the book to find out.
Costlow's characterisation will not disappoint, nor will the setting and emotions surrounding plot, pace and conflict. I suspect many female writers would struggle to offer the levels of charm that laces through this beautifully written paranormal and suspenseful romance.
As with yesterday's story, this is another one you need to put aside when you come to the end of A Distant Call, simply to give you time to savour every aspect of the tale.
