Description or summary of the book: 'The finest writer of paperback originals in America.' - Stephen King 'Readers of weak constitution should beware.' - 'Publishers Weekly' 'McDowell has a flair for the gruesome.' - 'Washington Post' Welcome to Babylon, a typical sleepy Alabama small town, where years earlier the Larkin family suffered a terrible tragedy. Now they are about to endure another: fourteen-year-old Margaret Larkin will be robbed of her innocence and her life by a killer who is beyond the reach of the law. But something strange is happening in Babylon: traffic lights flash an eerie blue, a ghostly hand slithers from the drain of a kitchen sink, graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form. Night after night it will pursue the murderer. And when the full moon rises over Babylon, it will seek a terrible vengeance . . . 'Cold Moon Over Babylon' (1980), the second novel by Michael McDowell (1950-1999), author of 'Blackwater' and 'The Elementals' and screenwriter of 'Beetlejuice' and 'The Nightmare Before Christmas,' is a chilling Southern Gothic tale of revenge from beyond the grave that ranks among his most terrifying books. This first-ever reprint features deliciously creepy new cover art by Mike Mignola.
