I just finished reading “Welcome to Plainfield” by Shawn Weaver. I give it 4 stars. Below is my review. You can pick up a copy on Amazon or B&N.
Shawn Weaver has a gift for the macabre, for ghost stories around the campfire that keep his listeners wide awake well past their bedtime. He’s done it again with “Welcome to Plainfield.” My only criticism is this book’s need for editing. But that is more than made up for by the story itself, griping and well-paced.
Two friends, Kay and Anita, are amateur ghost hunters with their camcorders, digital voice recorders and EMF meter. Interested in an old murder investigation, they stumble into a horror that repeats itself every twenty-five years. People go missing, people get cannibalized. Not just any people, either. The SAME people—by the same deranged killer. Fifty years later, he’s on the loose again, coming for them. To say more would give it away. But, if you’re not afraid of things that go ‘bump’ in the night, read this. Go ahead. I dare you.
