Halloween Fiction

Welcome to my little Niche within the library. So grab a coffee and let's review some books. Something WickedSomething Wicked by Lynn Bohart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Near Halloween, FBI agents O’Malley and Allen investigate the disappearance of three men who have all mysteriously disappeared without a trace in the small town of Colorado named Cisco Lake. They search the Scooter pumpkin patch, and adjacent farm, home of a strange boy named Demitre Rumonov and his blind grandmother, owners of the pumpkin patch. The villagers claim that the grandmother is a witch. Something sinister lurks in the pumpkin patch. Can agents O’Malley and Allen solve the mystery?

I enjoyed this short Halloween story. It certainly put me in a Halloween mood. The book reminds me of Children of the Corn by Stephen King and Pumpkin Head, two very scary films. I will certainly never look at pumpkins the same way. The characters of O’Malley and Allen reminded me of agents Scully and Mulder from the X-files. The book was only thirty-six pages; perhaps it could have been longer. It was definitely a good story. The author, Lynn Bohart, is an Indie author who has written several other novels, Mass Murder, Grave Doubts, and Your Worst Enemy. She has written everything from brochures to newsletters as a non-profit executive with a Masters degree in theatre.
