1977—In the sleepy town of Twin Falls, Colorado, what starts as a carefree school picnic ends in tragedy when six children disappear into an abandoned gold mine. Six enter the dark void—and days later, only five emerge. After an arduous search, the hunt for the last child is called off and the mine entrance is blasted. Little Frankie is left behind, alone in the darkness.
He is coming.
2011—Police Chief Cal Hunt’s investigation into a re- cent string of bizarre murders in Twin Falls takes a chilling turn when he learns that each of the victims was a survivor of the Seven Stars Mine incident. Cal realizes that they share a dark secret—the truth about what happened to Frankie.
To drag them deeper.
With time running out for the remaining survivors, Cal must face a killer that defies logical explanation. Because no matter how Cal analyzes the facts, there is only one conclusion: A supernatural force is reaching out from the depths to reclaim those who escaped more than thirty years before. And it will not rest until it takes them all . . .
Into the darkness.

So happy covenant is publishing true thrillers like this one! It’s SO HARD to find clean AND creepy novels. This books fills both requirements. And I LOVE it!
I listened to the audio version on Bookshelf Plus. It was perfect for my road trip and kept me intrigued until the end. I enjoyed the descriptive writing and the narrator was perfect.
I have to admit that I was kind of scared of reading this book after reading the beginning. I knew that it was going to be a ghost story, and I'm not overly fond of being scared. But once I got into the book a little ways I realized that I was really enjoying it. For me it became less of a ghost story and more of a mystery, because I don't really believe in ghosts. I really liked Cal Hunt in this book, his is the character you really get to "know" the most, most of the book is in his point of view. I can't say that I really liked all of the survivors because some of them were just plain selfish, rude or mean, but their characters were well planned and written. I liked the plot, there was always some action happening either to the survivors or to Cal. I really liked the ending, even though it was pretty creepy. Jeffry Savage is a master at writing with just the right amount of mystery, and creepiness!
To be honest I wasn't too sure I wanted to read this book...
KSL stated: ""Dark Memories" is the first horror novel published by Covenant or any mainstream LDS publisher."
While I am a lover off suspense. I am NOT a horror-liking person. So I was a little worried!
THEN I did a little research...
Jeffrey S. Savage said this about the book: "the book is not “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” blood and guts. “It’s more like the scary movies I watched growing up … when the most terrifying parts of the story took place in your own head.”
I read the first chapter on Amazon...
I finally said to my husband..."It's put out by Covenant...so it can't be too bad can it?" And then I jumped right in to reading it...
SO GLAD I DID!
I couldn't put it down! The story is so good and so real and yes, the most terrifying parts take place in your own head AND beware they really do!
In the story mysterious murders are taking place...the only connection between the victims is that they were all lost in a mine during a school picnic when they were younger. One boy of the group did not make it back out of the mine.
And now it seems he is calling revenge on those who did!
It is SCARY..
It is THRILLING...
It is packed with SUSPENSE...
It is FAST-PACED...
It is MIND-BOGGLING..
It is AMAZING...
It is SO GOOD...
A DEFINITE MUST READ :)
