Ashkettle Haunted – Young Adult, Thriller, Suspense
A.M. Goetz returns to the wilds of the Adirondack Mountains to revisit the compelling world of the Ashkettle Boys – three brothers struggling to help each other in the aftermath of a traumatic childhood.
Dack Ashkettle is just your average sixteen-year-old who likes cats and hiking, adventures and good times. He’s the youngest of three brothers, and when he’s on, he lights up a room like sunshine. But when he’s off, everything around him is cast into darkness, his brothers most of all.
“It wasn’t the kind of dark that could be assuaged with the lighting of a candle or with the warmth of hot coffee and good company. It was black and oily like tar. It was cold and consuming like the worst winter storm, and the first time I saw Dack turn himself off, it terrified me.”
Finally free from his abusive uncle, Dack has found peace and safety with his two older brothers, deep in mountains of upstate New York, where he struggles to work through the terrifying memories that haunt him. But the mind is a curious thing, and when Dack begins having frequent black outs and periods of inexplicable aggression, his brothers suffer the brunt of his illness.
Will the determined love of his unconventional family be enough to wrest Dack away from the demons that manipulate him? Or will he succumb, dragging the people he loves most over the edge and into the bleak abyss beside him?
