“Eric Shaw, once a promising filmmaker in Hollywood, has been reduced to filming weddings and funerals in Chicago. Offered a chance to make a documentary portrait of an ailing self-made millionaire, Eric finds himself in West Baden, Indiana, where abilities he has never been fully cognizant of draw him into an evil so powerful it reaches out to him from beyond the grave. Koryta's prose is fluid and masterful, making this a delightfully eerie and mesmerizing read!”
-- Jennie Turner-Collins, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH


Description
It starts with a beautiful woman. As a gift for her husband, Alyssa Bradford enlists Eric Shaw to make a documentary about her father-in-law, a ninety-five-year-old millionaire whose past is wrapped in mystery.
In the old man's hometown, Shaw discovers a spring whose waters have unfathomable powers and a glorious domed hotel where movie stars, presidents, athletes, and mobsters once mingled. The hotel has recently been restored to its former grandeur. But something else has been restored, too--a long-forgotten evil that will stop at nothing to settle a decades-old score.

Eighteen years later, he's written So Cold the River, a supernatural thriller about the historic hotel and the mysterious waters that run beneath it. More at NPR.org
