The Devil Walks in Mattingly

My Thoughts:
Oh my WORD!  I am going to start out by saying I love mystery books, suspense and some thrillers even.  However this book totally freaked me out.  Gave me the heebie jeebies.  That is a good thing.  Now you think I have lost my mind, but truthfully, how often do you read a book, that you feel so much.  I thought I would jump out of my skin in some sections of this book.  Mercy me, I got through it though.  Billy Coffey is a very talented author, and this may be the only book of his that I will ever read, not because he is bad, but I am not sure I can take the fright factor.  OH my WORD!! 4 stars from this reviewer.  Great book, scary stuff!

About the book:
 For the three people tortured by their secret complicity in a young man's untimely death, redemption is what they most long for . . . and the last thing they expect to receive.
It has been twenty years since Philip McBride's body was found along the riverbank in the dark woods known as Happy Hollow. His death was ruled a suicide. But three people have carried the truth ever since---Philip didn't kill himself that day. He was murdered.
Each of the three have wilted in the shadow of their sins. Jake Barnett is Mattingly's sheriff, where he spends his days polishing the fragile shell of the man he pretends to be. His wife, Kate, has convinced herself the good she does for the poor will someday wash the blood from her hands. And high in the mountains, Taylor Hathcock lives in seclusion and fear, fueled by madness and hatred.
Yet what cannot be laid to rest is bound to rise again. Philip McBride has haunted Jake's dreams for weeks, warning that he is coming back for them all. When Taylor finds mysterious footprints leading from the Hollow, he believes his redemption has come. His actions will plunge the quiet town of Mattingly into darkness. These three will be drawn together for a final confrontation between life and death . . . Between truth and lies.
