Abram's Bridge - by Glenn Rolfe - Starts as a charming ghost story and builds to a devastating climax
Abram's Bridge is a quick little novella which may just leave you breathless.
Glenn Rolfe is quite skilled at painting a picture with his words. Crossing over the uneven wooden planks, his Huffy BMX bike bumped, riddled and rattled like the chains of the Ghost of Christmas Past.
It was while out riding his bike by Abram's bridge that Li'l Ron heard a girl's voice and discovered Sweet Kate exuding an impossible blue-tinged luminance.
When he hears Kates's story, he makes solving the mystery of her untimely death his mission and he's determined to learn the truth about what happened in his otherwise sleepy town and set her spirit free.
The clues are easy enough for the reader to unravel and it's not to difficult to see where the story's going before it gets there, but there are still a number of nice surprises as what begins as a charming little ghost story quickly builds to a devastating climax.
By the end of the read my adrenaline must have been flowing as much as Li'l Ron's.
A terribly entertaining tale and one I can easily recommend.
This re-release of Abram's Bridge is a Macabre In Production, an imprint of Crossroad Press, is available in both e-book and Audible formats.
From Glenn Rolfe's bio - Glenn is an author, singer, and songwriter from the haunted woods of New England. He has studied Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University, and continues his education in the world of horror by devouring the works of Stephen King and Richard Laymon.
