Spiderstalk by D. Nathan Hilliard
In the past year he has broken up with his fiancee, barely survived a terrible car wreck, and had his brother’s family vanish while he lay unconscious in the hospital. Since then he has been a crippled shell going through the motions of life with nothing but the search for his brother to keep him going.
But Adam is about to discover that things can still take a turn for the worse. Much worse.
His quest for his brother has brushed up against a very dark corner of the world and something has come out of that darkness with an unholy vengeance. He can’t fight it, he can’t hide from it, and not even the police can protect him as his world descends into chaos.
His only hope lies in a mysterious pair of strangers who have appeared out of nowhere with an offer of aid. But they have their own agenda, and his survival may not be their top priority. Now Adam must keep his wits about him and learn to believe in himself again as events send him on a collision course with a monster more horrific than he ever dreamed possible.
About the author of this science fiction fantasy: D Nathan Hillard:
D. Nathan Hilliard lives in Spring, Texas with his veterinarian wife, two children, assorted rodents, and a fanatically omnivorous dachshund. He draws his inspiration from a childhood living in different small Texas towns, accented by teen years spent in western New Mexico. He has experienced life through a diverse collection of jobs ranging from meter reading and being an assistant manager at a convenience store, to working at cotton gins, window factories, and uranium mills. After coming down with Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT) at the turn of the century, Mr. Hilliard now happily settles for tending house, raising his kids, and exploring the field of writing.
His adventures in writing and househusbandry can be followed at http://adarkandstormyblog.blogspot.com/
What makes this science fiction fantasy such a good story is that it covers horror from suspense and psychology to the visceral and gore with equal skill.
