I respectfully request, sir, that you devote full attention to this matter in his memory and on behalf of a city that has long forgotten his sacrifice...While I judge you not for the past sins of White Pines, I do charge you with atonement for his unsolved murder now that you are in the position of privilege to address this matter. Newly appointed White Pines, North Carolina, Police Chief William H. Parker is baffled by the mysterious death of a patrolman almost fifty years ago. George A. Hartley's body was discovered in an elevator shaft; and although reliable outside sources deemed it a homicide, local authorities consistently propagated it was accidental. His death comes to Parker's attention from a letter of a surviving son, asking him to investigate recurring rumors and harder realities long ignored by former chiefs. This letter serves as a summons to this haunted past. What Chief Parker finds is that the police department's case file no longer exists. Photographs of the crime scene are missing. Inquest records have disappeared. There is not only the question of who murdered the patrolman but also why the case was buried so deeply in the town's dark history. Based on a true story, In Summons to the Past portrays the timeless sorrow resurrected in the surviving son and the challenges of a case complicated by time. Is Chief Parker better off leaving some harder truths to the past? Will his conscience prevail in his steadfast belief that justice, even when delayed, is still justice? Through his perseverance, he is led to a surviving person of interest haunted by the murder, one obsessed with the book of Ecclesiastes now in the mid-winter of his years.
Set in New York and the Deep South ten years after the Civil Rights movement's heroic and tragic summer of 1964, it is a story of murder, revenge, madness and redemption. Walter Kendrick, in the New York Times Book Review, called the novel "absorbing and moving," and Garrett Epps, in The New Republic, termed it "a memorable and explosive parable." ... The hero of The Summoning is a transplanted Southerner thoroughly acclimated to New York secular liberalism. In the novel, however, he is changed for life by his encounter with a travelling preacher, an idea Towers hit upon by pure chance. --Columbia University Record 5/12/1995.
After years of frequent moves following her mother’s death, Chloe Saunders’s life is finally settling down. She is attending art school, pursuing her dreams of becoming a director, making friends, meeting boys. Her biggest concern is that she’s not developing as fast as her friends are. But when puberty does hit, it brings more than hormone surges. Chloe starts seeing ghosts–everywhere, demanding her attention. After she suffers a breakdown, her devoted aunt Lauren gets her into a highly recommended group home. At first, Lyle House seems a pretty okay place, except for Chloe’s small problem of fearing she might be facing a lifetime of mental illness. But as she gradually gets to know the other kids at the home–charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and Rae, who has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together, and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour. And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home either… From the Trade Paperback edition.
All is not well in Chthonic City, Maine. People are anxious, sleepless. Road rage is on the rise, and the ERs overflow with domestic and workplace violence. Why? Because the citizens of Chthonic City are having recurring, terrifying nightmares about demons rising to walk among them, and they’re snapping. In fact, demons ARE rising. Slowly. One at a time, to dwell unnoticed among us as they multiply our misery. And they’re rising in Chthonic City where the veil between the Chthonic (the Underworld for which the City was named, though the meaning of the word has been long forgotten) and earthly reality is very thin. Demons cannot rise until a human soul is driven mad. Over the millennia, demons have crossed as they could, but never before has humanity been so stressed as it is now in the Western world. Never before have we been so starved for time, touch, meaning, purpose. Never have our circuits been so overloaded with gloom and doom, economically, environmentally, spiritually. Never before have the demons had such a vulnerable population. Scenting a chance to break free in numbers, they hurl themselves into our dreams, battering at our sanity. But these demons are not unopposed. In a crumbling church on the edge of town, an ancient Guardian has been watching and waiting. When the threat from the Underworld surges, the Guardian's job is to send out a call to a fresh crop – a cell – of Gatekeepers, and train them to descend into the Chthonic through the dream state and do battle with the demons, slaying them there before they can cross the threshold. In Chthonic City, a new cell of Gatekeepers – teenagers all – has just been summoned....
