ALETHEIA by J.S. Breukelaar

Deep below the island, something monstrous lies waiting for Thettie, and it knows her name.

“Family and small town desires and secrets simmer in J. S. Breukelaar's melancholy and affecting mix of literary, noir, and horror by the lake. ALETHEIA is a compelling 21st century ghost story. Don't lose your Gila monster!”—Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock.

The remote lake town of Little Ridge has a memory problem. There is an island out on the lake somewhere, but no one can remember exactly where it is—and what it has to do with the disappearance of the eccentric Frankie Harpur or the seven-year-old son of a local artist, Lee Montour.

When Thettie Harpur brings her family home to find Frankie, she faces opposition from all sides—including from the clan leader himself, the psychotic Doc Murphy.

Lee, her one true ally in grief and love, might not be enough to help take on her worst nightmare. The lake itself.

A tale of that most human of monsters—memory—Aletheia is part ghost story, part love story, a novel about the damage done, and the damage yet to come. About terror itself. Not only for what lies ahead, but also for what we think we have left behind.

Brought to you by Crystal Lake Publishing—Tales from the Darkest Depths.

“Sometimes the monster lurks within us, and sometimes it prowls the world we inhabit, made flesh. Both reside in this unsettling, moving, and haunting story about family, loss, and the dark shadows that loom at the edge of our perception.”—Richard Thomas, author of Breaker and Tribulations

“In Aletheia by JS Breukelaar the prodigal children of a strange lake come home, their return dredging up old enmities and reopening barely healed wounds. Breukelaar’s prose is as warm as blood and sharp as a scalpel, and even the smallest moment is made miraculous. By turns unsettling, terrifying, and uplifting, Aletheia is a stunning examination of the intersections between memory, love, life and death.”—Angela Slatter, World Fantasy Award-winning author of The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings
