JPL Bookfinder Pick of the Month: Scary Stories for the Whole Family


snow book coverSnow by Ronald Malfi

Todd Curry wants nothing more than to spend Christmas with his son. But when a brutal snowstorm cancels his flight from Chicago to Des Moines, Todd and a few other stranded passengers decide to rent a Jeep and make the trip on their own. During the drive, they pick up a man wandering through the snow who claims to be searching for his lost daughter. He is disoriented and his story seems peculiar. Strangest of all are the mysterious slashes cut into the back of the man’s coat, straight down to the flesh. When they arrive at the nearest town it appears deserted. Windows dark, car abandoned, and a fire burning unattended. But Todd and the rest of the travelers soon learn the town is far from deserted, and that they are being watched.
