Summary
Inside a lighthouse hundreds of miles from any substantial body of water, a local reporter discovers the walls covered in maps bearing the names of the dead. Has an age-old legend come to life? Can it be stopped before more people die? With a haunting atmosphere and tightly-coiled plot, The Ridge is a terrifying journey into the heart of darkness
Summary
From the lighthouse he built on top of a ridge in an eastern Kentucky forest, Wyatt French makes two rambling phone calls about murder and suicide. When Chief Deputy Kevin Kimble and journalist Roy Darmus find him dead in the lighthouse and discover old photographs and maps with names written on them, they realize Wyatt has been collecting information that relates to mysterious and deadly local events that date back decades. As more disturbing events occur, Kimble and Darmus find they are confronting an old, old evil. -- Description by Dawn Towery
