In an isolated stretch of eastern Kentucky, on a hilltop known as Blade Ridge, stands a lighthouse that illuminates nothing but the surrounding woods. For years the lighthouse has been considered no more than an eccentric local landmark-until its builder is found dead at the top of the light, and his belongings reveal a troubling local history.

For deputy sheriff Kevin Kimble, the lighthouse-keeper's death is disturbing and personal. Years ago, Kimble was shot while on duty. Somehow the death suggests a connection between the lighthouse and the most terrifying moment of his life.

Audrey Clark is in the midst of moving her large-cat sanctuary onto land adjacent to the lighthouse. Sixty-seven tigers, lions, leopards, and one legendary black panther are about to have a new home there. Her husband, the sanctuary's founder, died scouting the new property, and Audrey is determined to see his vision through.

As strange occurrences multiply at the Ridge, the animals grow ever more restless, and Kimble and Audrey try to understand what evil forces are moving through this ancient landscape, just past the divide between dark and light.

The Ridge is the new thriller from international bestseller Michael Koryta, further evidence of why Dean Koontz has said "Michael Koryta's work resonates into deeper strata than does most of what I read" and why Michael Connelly has named him "one of the best of the best."

Wild Move" by Ofidi Benjamin is an intriguing art submission that focuses on the extra ordinary lives and exploits of the main characters. Having served for many years with distinction as an arbiter of the law, "Antonio" is thought to be either dead or in a near zombie-like state due to an unrelenting force known as "The Night" In his stead, "Oscar Mayors" learns of Antonio's true plight and hopes to harness his own pastoral teachings to bring deliverance to this lost soul while forestalling his own demise. Finding themselves in the unusual position of being brothers in arms, they combined to offer staunch, spiritual resistance. From this foundation, the author creates a riveting saga.
Composed in a captivating narrative and compelling dialogue, the story flows at a brisk tempo. The plot contains more than a few strategically placed, unexpected twists that should maintain the viewer's interest throughout. The characters are developed and presented in a multi-dimensional fashion revealing the intricacies of their unique personalities and individual agendas. In addition, the author effectively manages to avoid artificially padding the work with superfluous material and unnecessary characters thereby keeping the focus directed towards the primary storyline. Navigating the plot to a well-conceived and logical conclusion, the author could leave the audience with sense of time well invested in the viewing of this story.
Ofidi Benjamin's highly creative style of writing combined with a keen attention to details could further enhance the appeal of this work.
