Mark R. Vogel
Crestwood Lake is a small, secluded town in the woods of northern Vermont. Mysterious events and strange deaths have always plagued the community—as have rumors of witchcraft. But lately, there has been a sudden rash of suicides and grisly murders.
Captain Butch Morgan, the chief of police, must uncover the truth about Crestwood Lake. His best friend, historian Gil Pearson, suspects the satanic folklore is true. He and Morgan consult an occult expert who outlines what he believes to be the truth, and what must be done.
Meanwhile Morgan, recently widowed, has fallen in love with Vicki Larson, the local barmaid. When it becomes clear that she is in danger as well, Morgan decides to act. Morgan must confront an ancient evil: a fateful showdown that could risk his life, and the tortured town of Crestwood Lake.
In a style similar to early American horror literature, author Mark R. Vogel’s Crestwood Lake is reminiscent of the calm-but-terrifying tone of Edgar Allan Poe’s writings…and will keep you stricken in your seat long after you read the final page.
