The Ridge, a novel to give you chills in the August heat

 The Ridge   by  Michael Koryta 

Set in eastern Kentucky, in this book the haunted spot is Blade Ridge its woods so creepy and dangerous that the town drunk/eccentric actually set up a light house to keep the dark at bay.  Unfortunately, several events are set to coincide that greatly disturb the shaky status quo that has been achieved.  When the light house owner is found dead, and the owner of a wild cat sanctuary relocates their 67 large cats there Deputy Sheriff Kimble is drawn into the mysteries that inhabit those woods.  The pace is good, with the creep factor increasing steadily. Good characters, plot and writing make this one I highly recommend.  In paperback and e-book.
