I have one copy of THE DEAD PATH by Australian Filmmaker and Novelist Stephen M. Irwin to give away to one lucky winner. What’s more, the book is in hardcover and glows in the dark. I hope there’s also awesomeness betwixt its pages as well.
The plot and author description per Stephen’s M. Irwin’s publisher (Random House/Double Day):
A haunting vision in the woods sets off a series of tragic events, leaving Nicholas Close lost amid visions of ghosts trapped in their harrowing, final moments. These uniquely terrifying apparitions lead him on a thrilling and suspenseful ride to confront a wicked soul, and will leave an indelible mark on lovers of high-quality suspense and horror alike.

Nicholas Close has always had an uncanny intuition, but after the death of his wife he becomes haunted, literally, by ghosts doomed to repeat their final violent moments in a chilling and endless loop. Torn by guilt and fearing for his sanity, Nicholas returns to his childhood home and is soon entangled in a disturbing series of disappearances and murders—both as a suspect and as the next victim of the malignant evil lurking in the heart of the woods.

Stephen M. Irwin is the kind of debut author that readers love to discover—and rave about to all their friends. His electric use of language, stunning imagery, and suspenseful pacing are all on full display here. The Dead Path is a tour de force of wild imagination, taut suspense, and the creepiest, scariest setting since the sewers in Stephen King’s It.
I’ve yet to read the novel myself, as I will receive my review copy around the same time as the winner, but once I’m done reading it, I will post a review on Goodreads.com, which will be under my name as it appears on this blog.
