Years earlier, John Tracker fled the insanity of his family and their house, a centuries-old monstrosity that his grandfather Theophilus rigged full of hallucinatory tricks and vicious death traps designed to capture the Devil. Now middle-aged, John receives word that the place is to be demolished to make way for a freeway, and he decides to revisit it with his girlfriend Amy Griffith before its destruction. But when a blizzard traps them inside the house, they will be forced to contend with the dangers hidden within: strange time-shifts, murderous traps, and more.
There is a curse on Point Vestal. Time moves differently in this sleepy Northwestern coastal town, where the ghosts of the past roam the streets as readily as the living inhabitants. It's still the late 19th century, and underneath the quaint touristy allure of the commingling of the past and present is a lurking darkness.
From award-winner Jack Cady, a new novel that is part murder-mystery, part classical tragedy, part spiritual journey. Set among the Cherokee of North Carolina in the 1950s, Inagehi is the story of a young woman who inherits a mountain and the mystery of her father's death. With themes as ancient as the existence of God and as modern as post-traumatic stress disorder, Inagehi answers that voice inside us all that asks how "it" all fits together. A work of uncommon power from a master craftsman.
A haunting, eerie and distinctive new novel by the World Fantasy Award-winning author of The Sons of Noah. A killer is preying upon young women in Seattle. Police efforts have been minimal, and now the only people who might stop this rampant evil are street people.
Supposedly a true story framed in the format of a novel, The Jonah Watch is based on Jack Cady's experiences while serving on a Coast Guard cutter off the coast of Maine. Trapped on an icebound cutter, the crew of the Adrian are haunted by apparitions, and the resulting terror and paranoia make for a claustrophobic tale of initiation and survival.
Master storyteller Jack Cady's final novel, Rules of '48, is a stirring semi-autobiographical examination of changing social conventions, and the development of the American conscience in the aftermath of the greatest war in history. In a city with roots deep in the Confederacy, five men endure seven deadly weeks that forever alter their perceptions of the world.
The stories that make up Ghosts of Yesterday create a detailed and realistic portrait of the world that, despite (and perhaps because of) their authenticity, manage to convey a sense of wonder and fantasy, where anything is possible. The characters and places that Cady brings to life demonstrate clearly why he is one of the most versatile and respected writers today.
