A literary thriller that culls the lurking dread and primal hunger of the vampire myth, but leaves the cliches at the door.
Stephen King's Needful Things meets The Poisonwood Bible in an evocative vampire tale as fresh and inventive as The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires.
In rural Pennsylvania, a teenage boy is mauled to death.
Hadassah Zook knows what happened, but she isn’t telling. There’s a dreadful secret buried between the furrows of her upright, simple Amish valley.
Another murder lights a fire of suspicion and prejudice in the community. It threatens to destroy everything. The killings draw in two FBI detectives: Jacobo Barrabas and Keith Linguard. But they aren’t the only ones on the hunt in Big Valley.
What Readers are Saying:
"A wonderfully woven tapestry of vampire horror and suspense."
"A complex, spine-chilling tale..."
"A wildly engaging story of tradition, modernity, religion, folklore, and violence."
"A creative, original, and thrilling read!"
Quaint and cozy as pecan pie, but vicious as a pitchfork, you won’t want to leave Big Valley, but you won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough either. The story and characters will stay with you long after its satisfying conclusion.
Banner stitches every heartbreak and revelation into an emotionally riveting exploration of the questions: What makes us monsters: is it desire, deception, loyalty? And how far do you have to go to stop one?
