A Campfire Nightmare
Sixteen-year-old James “Jimmy” Downs has never attended summer camp before—let alone one as prestigious as Colman’s Amateur Music Program, a music camp owned and operated by legendary singer William Rox.
Despite his almost-supernatural drumming abilities, Jimmy and his best buddy, Michael Munday, quickly find themselves mocked and bullied by campers from wealthier families. If these kids are to be believed, riches trump actual talent.
Then Rox shares the legend of the Flathead Native Americans’ battles against twisted monstrosities lurking in the woods. It would be a great ghost story—if Jimmy and Michael hadn’t noticed that something is indeed stalking the camp in the dead of night. Only a mysterious, pale mounted figure seems to stand between the campers and whatever lurks in the darkness.
As the beasts in the woods grow increasingly restless, Jimmy and Michael try to focus on their music to prove to other campers that talent knows no economic boundaries. As for Rox, the camp director has his own secrets—secrets that might change the two young campers’ lives forever—unless what’s in the woods gets to them first.
