WEREWOLVES OF WEST VIRGINIA Book One: Gatew...
Successful young business owner, Carlyn "Carly" Jensen has always known that Waukensee, West Virginia is different. There are things lurking around here... dangerous things that don't exist in other communities. Townsfolk have seen them from time to time throughout the decades; even reported them to the authorities, only to be subsequently ridiculed and have their stories conveniently dismissed or covered up. That's because the powers-that-be don't know how to deal with such creatures and to admit their existence acknowledges a problem that they don't want to have to contend with.
These anomalies are the "elephant in the room" for every Waukensian, beasts thought of as only myth everywhere else, talked about but only in hushed, fearful voices and among close friends whom you can trust to not think you're crazy... simply because you know that they've seen the strangeness too. Werewolves, vampires, moth-men, lizard-men and even the legendary Sasquatch are just a few of the oddities that have been reported to occasionally prowl the outskirts of this town when the sun drops below the horizon. The residents here follow quietly spoken rules of their own making; if you go out after dark, don't travel alone and stay to well-lit, public venues. If you stray off on your own... you might not make it home.
Based on a story her grandfather told her many years ago, Carlyn thinks she might know why such creatures occasionally come to lurk around Waukensee. It has been quiet here for some time but now, after unexpectedly coming face to face with death, she's determined to find out the answer. Join Carlyn, her brother Cody and their friends as they unveil secrets of their own while they attempt to unravel the mystery behind a string of violent murders and determine if the killer is merely one of their own or one of the oft-whispered-of creatures that prowl the area after sundown.
