From the New York Times bestselling author of Gone South and PBS Great American Read nominee Swan Song comes “as finely a turned tale of horror as the best of them” (Houston Chronicle) about two young men with astonishing psychic gifts who encounter a nightmarish enemy.
One talks to the dead. The other heals the living. Both must make the Mystery Walk…
From deep within the empty house of a murdered family, Billy Creekmore hears his name whispered…and is drawn inside. At a revival meeting in Alabama, Wayne Falconer demonstrates his miraculous healing powers…while demons feast and grow in his soul.
On separate journeys through the Deep South to Chicago, from a world of innocence to a world of evil, greed, and lust, the two young men discover their manhood—and fuel a deadly rivalry. On a scorched slab of desert they will meet in fear and unite their extraordinary powers against a raging, unshackled spirit—the walking, hungry corpse of the Shape Changer.
