In this short story, a group of kids are gathering at a cemetery for their annual -- and most unusual -- Halloween Scavenger hunt. Things start out haltingly - the kid's dialogue not sounding like they're old enough to be 11. But then the story takes an unexpected turn towards gratuitous violence. When I started reding this, I was expecting a fun/spooky kid's story, but it's more akin to a slasher film: high body count, lots of gore.
A disturbing plot twist ends the story with a cliffhanger. The next two installments in the series, HUNTED and SOUTHSIDE, are available on Kindle for $0.99. I won't be reading them - I like supernatural stories, but this style isn't quite for me. Also, (without giving away the story) I'm bothered by the premise. This sort of scavenger hunt would attract LOTS of attention , so how have the kids been getting away with it for years?
