Beeston, Connecticut – 1986.
A derelict dive bar. The storm of the century. The woman of his dreams. It’s a shame that one night of waking up will become his living nightmare.
Awkward Hank Forster pinches himself when he meets the exotic Alina. Her blunt honesty and kindness are more than anybody has ever shown him. He doesn’t believe in mysticism, magical powers… yet the seemingly impossible things she can do are incredible. But there are things she knows – about him – that are truly terrifying.
He had convinced himself that none of it had been real. But when she dredges up his harrowing childhood to haunt him, will Hank be able to face the terrifying demons, or will it be easier for him to kill Alina than to kill for her?
The Mountain She Built is a brooding horror novel that disturbingly blurs the line between good and evil, right and wrong, truth and belief; a story to keep you up at night, cowering in the darkness not because of monsters out there…
