Readers can now add Head Football Coach George Lathero to Malone's Terry Chagford (Inside a Haunted Mind), Mitchell Bramson (The Digger's Rest) and Michael Golden (An Unfinished House) as the most memorial protagonists in recent horror literature. Big, handsome All-American George and his pretty wife, Renee, try to revive their lives and their loves when the move into the Civil War reconstruction manor house called Miller's Court with her fourteen-year-old son Robin, George's troublesome party-boy brother Will, and Renee's cancer-surviving, Tammy Wynette era mother Vivian. All seems to be glorious for them, finally happy for the first time in their lives, until Renee calls George at work one day with ominous words. “George, Robin's got a fever,” sparking a journey of love and loss, guilt and shame for them all as each are confronted by the ghosts within themselves. But why is Robin burning? Uncontrollable temperatures leave doctors baffled and lead George Lathero into a life-changing redefinition of the meaning of “Father Love” for a son that is not his own. Once again, Malone has created an ensemble of indelible characters and a thought-provoking haunting that will leave readers on the edges of their seats, gasping as secrets are revealed and leading to an ending that is nothing less than…..incendiary. “Don't cry, George. It's only thunder.”
