But this year, she’s unexpectedly stranded over Christmas, struggling to come to terms with a sobering medical diagnosis.

Summer son by Lee Mandolo. Eddie and Andrew have been best friends for years; they got even closer after the accident which left them stranded in a cave when they were teenagers. Then Eddie kills himself at Vanderbilt; Andrew can’t believe it, mainly because the “malicious haunts” that have followed Andrew since the accident won’t allow him to forget the past. Andrew travels to Nashville to fight Eddie’s death, settle his legacy, and try to figure out who really killed him and why – even if answering these questions means delving deeper into the supernatural curse plaguing him. The result is a satisfying, menacing, character-centric slow burn where every detail counts.
