When a child mysteriously disappears from a small town and even his mother seems indifferent, it's time for the new sheriff to step in.
Meet Chris Baker, the new sheriff of the quiet Adirondack town of Clifton Heights. As one inexplicable case after another forces him to confront the townsfolk in The Skylark Diner, it's the furtive Gavin Patchett that hands Chris a collection of not-so-fictional short stories that tumbles him into a world of sliding monsters, ageless demons and vengeful citizens.
As Chris reads through the stories the veil starts to lift, and he soon questions what is real and what's not, and whether he really wants to know. Nothing will ever be the same again.
So welcome to Clifton Heights, New York, an average Adirondack town, and nice enough in its own right. Except after dark, under the pale light of the moon. Or on a road out of town that never ends, or in an old house on the edge of town with a will of its own.

"Lucia's Things Slip Through --a chimeric concoction of honest, heartfelt, and truly frightening prose that should not be missed." - Ronald Malfi, author of Floating Staircase
