What a chilling well-written first chapter. A man in his thirties searches for a hardware store in the backwoods of a small Pennsylvania town. He’s not an ordinary man. He finds the store closed. Inside a young teenage girl tells him to come back the next day. But this stranger charms her, reads her thoughts, and gets inside the store with her. “And they were always eager to prove they were women by following him to whatever bed, car seat, or back alley he chose.” Night Chill by Jeff Gunhus.
