I know, I know. Readers like to know what to expect. I grant that. Really, I do. But it's of more interest to me to tell a good and interesting story with believable characters than anything else.
That said, the new novella definitely fits the dark fiction genre. It could sit any number of places, really. It's a suspenseful yarn about a man who thinks he sees the world for what it is. In a way, he's like all of us, stumbling around in the dark until he comes across some bright point of light. It interests him for a while, and like a cat, he toys with it. What will be interesting, is to see how the toy plays with him.
Here's the official synopsis and cover.

A dark and mature suspense thriller from the mind that brought you WALKOUT and THALO BLUE.
In denial about his failing marriage, Dave Bolander cruises the nighttime world of Dow Lake campground, looking for a good time. When he happens upon some kids also on the hunt for a rush, all the excitement from Dave’s last beach summer comes flooding back. How delish, Dave thinks. How wonderfully delish.
