David Morrell’s The Shimmer is coming in July. Inspired by the real-life “Marfa Lights” in Texas, Morrell takes readers on a terrifying journey and demonstrated how a thing of beauty can also be a thing of great danger.
Description: When police officer Dan Page’s wife disappeares, her trail leads to Rostov, a remote Texas town where unexplained phenomena attract hundreds of spectators each night. Not merely curious, these onlookers are compelled to reach this tiny community and gaze at the mysterious Rostov Lights.
But more than the failful are drawn there. A gunman begins shooting at the lights, screaming, “Go back to hell where you came from!” then turns his rifle on the innocent bystanders. As more and more people are drawn to the scene of the massacre, the stage is set for ever greater bloodshed.
To save his wife, Page must solve the mystery of the Rostove Lights. In the process, he uncovers a deadly government secret dating back to the First World War. The lights are more dangerous than anyone ever imagined, but even more deadly are those who try to exploit the forces beyond their control.
