In an isolated stretch of eastern Kentucky, on a hilltop known as Blade Ridge, stands a lighthouse that illuminates nothing but the surrounding woods. For years the lighthouse has been considered no more than an eccentric local landmark-until its builder is found dead at the top of the light, and his belongings reveal a troubling local history. For deputy sheriff Kevin Kimble, the lighthouse-keeper's death is disturbing and personal. Years ago, Kimble was shot while on duty. Somehow the death suggests a connection between the lighthouse and the most terrifying moment of his life. Audrey Clark is in the midst of moving her large-cat sanctuary onto land adjacent to the lighthouse. Sixty-seven tigers, lions, leopards, and one legendary black panther are about to have a new home there. Her husband, the sanctuary's founder, died scouting the new property, and Audrey is determined to see his vision through. As strange occurrences multiply at the Ridge, the animals grow ever more restless, and Kimble and Audrey try to understand what evil forces are moving through this ancient landscape-just past the divide between dark and light.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Robert Petkoff carries the listener through what begins as a simple murder mystery but ends up a chilling tale of the supernatural. This is a great audiobook to listen to on a dark country road. Petkoff's voice expresses a bit of honest disbelief in the beginning and then turns deadly serious as the frightening predictions of a crazy man start coming true. It's rare that an audiobook evokes goose bumps--this one does. Listeners will think they know what's going on but by the end will realize they've had no clue about what was really taking place atop a mountain ridge in eastern Kentucky, where a lighthouse illuminates nothing but the surrounding woods.
