The Wolf in the Blue Moon
“Night is falling and Moon is waiting in awareness. Far too aware. Riddled with shivers and pain. Moon doesn't think, she only follows instinct and pain; her memories are double locked in a lead casket. Sacred. She is in limbo; she has no place among the living, but is not altogether ready to die. As long as she still struggles.” Moon is a child.
A natural progression of her first two novels, A Bat in the Attic and A Monkey on your Back, Stephanie Benson pushes horror and compassion, fundamental to her view of the thriller, to their limits and chronicles devastated lives and the tragedy of bereavement.
