About the Audiobook
In this thrilling new work, Black Rapids Audio and award-winning actor Allwyn Baskin bring a chilling excitement to Dan Maurer’s debut horror novella Snow Day.
In an engaging and nuanced performance, Baskin reads the story of Billy Stone, a middle-aged father of two young sons who go to bed praying for a snow day. While they sleep, he recounts the events of his own terrifying snow day in 1975. On that day, Billy and his friends played carefree in the snow, until an adventure gone awry left him far from home, staring death in the face, and running from a killer bent on keeping a horrible secret.
Set in a time before Amber Alerts, when horror stories were told around camp fires instead of on the nightly news, Snow Day is a blend of nostalgia and nightmare that makes us question if the good old days were really as good as we remember.
From a new voice in dark fiction comes a thriller about an idyllic childhood turned horrifying; a cautionary tale about how losing sight of the difference between feeling safe and being safe can lead to deadly consequences.
