A Small Dark Place

(1997)
A novel by

 
Be careful what you wish for......

In the spellbinding tradition of Stephen King and V.C. Andrews comes A Small Dark Place--a terrifying novel of a family and town that perpetrated evil--and must now pay the price.

Times are tough in Wishbone, Kansas. The crops have dried up; so have the jobs. Peter Wiley, once the town's high school football star, and his prom queen wife, Sandra, are about to be dispossessed by the bank. If there's a way they can save their farm, and create a better life for their young children, Will and Andromeda, neither can figure how. Until, that is, they hear the story of a little girl who has fallen down an abandoned mine shaft and whose dreadful plight incites Americans to respond with their prayers and their pocketbooks.

Maybe, the Wileys scheme, it could work for them, too.

An act borne of desperation, greed and obsession takes on unforeseen and unforeseeable consequences for the Wileys and for Wishbone. At once a gothic thriller and shrewd morality tale about the American psyche, Martin Schenk's debut novel marks the beginning of an important literary career.

Judith Ivey has earned two Tony Awards for her work in Hurlyburly and Steaming. Her feature film credits include The Devil's Advocate, Washington Square, There Goes the Neighhorhood and Brighton Beach Memoirs. She has starred on TV in series and films including The Long Hot Summer and What the Deaf Man Heard. She can be heard on other BDD Audio productions including Missing Pieces, Under the Beetle's Cellar and The Red Scream.
