Scout Selection: My Hungry Friend

My Hungry Friend

A man faces terrifying consequences after kicking over a homeless woman’s cup of change.


When Mike Roberts kicks over a homeless woman’s cup of change, she whispers a cryptic warning: “Mind the cracks . . .” Now the Boston he knows and loves is unraveling around him. But his life is not the only thing at stake. His mother, a once acclaimed writer lost in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, depends on him to have a home. And then there’s Cassie, beautiful, incomparable Cassie, who might want something more from Mike than the friendship they’ve long shared. As his city balances on a razor’s edge, Mike will have to hunt down the daughter of the woman he wronged and uncover their terrible family secret . . . or be plunged into a world of crawling horrors and unspeakable hunger. A world from which no one has ever returned.

From the Author:
I love any story that’s told well, but I have a soft spot for tales that offer a shiver or two. Looking for a chill? You’ll find plenty to frighten you here. Not big on getting goosebumps? That’s all right, too, as long as you don’t mind stories that go to some dark places. I believe in putting characters before scares, because horror – like any other genre – only works if the people on the page are human and you care about them. So go ahead. Have a peek . . . . . . just be sure to close your closet door.
