Forthcoming novels: The Clearing, a supernatural thriller

Coming in 2012…

The Clearing by Thomas Rydder

After twenty years in the Marine Corps, Major Frank Cutlip comes home to the quiet hills of his beloved Pennsylvania  to take up a new life as the sheriff of Allegheny County.

Professor Jackie Lowe took up a post at Paxton University because she became enamored with western Pennsylvania’s charms, a more enduring love than she thought she would ever feel for a man.

When Jackie’s dog is savaged by wolves, their peaceful lives are shattered, and their fates entwined. On the brink of death, the dog not only survives but grows larger… and more vicious. A thousand-year cycle of slaughter is reaching its climax once more, and the peaceful wooded hills will soon be smeared with blood. Sheriff Cutlip leads his community in a hunt for the hidden terror, but then his own brother is bitten, his blood corrupted by the ancient evil. The sheriff must confront terrible choices, and he can’t do so alone.

The Clearing is a novel of ordinary people thrown together in extraordinary circumstances.

If you enjoy Dean Koontz or Michael Crichton, you should read this supernatural thriller.

In the wooded hills of western Pennsylvania, and ancient evil waits.
