Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Gone South and PBS Great American Read nominee Swan Song comes “as finely a turned tale of horror as the best of them” (Houston Chronicle) about two young men with astonishing psychic gifts who encounter a nightmarish enemy.

One talks to the dead. The other heals the living. Both must make the Mystery Walk...

From deep within the empty house of a murdered family, Billy Creekmore hears his name whispered...and is drawn inside. At a revival meeting in Alabama, Wayne Falconer demonstrates his miraculous healing powers...while demons feast and grow in his soul.

On separate journeys through the Deep South to Chicago, from a world of innocence to a world of evil, greed, and lust, the two young men discover their manhood—and fuel a deadly rivalry. On a scorched slab of desert they will meet in fear and unite their extraordinary powers against a raging, unshackled spirit—the walking, hungry corpse of the Shape Changer.

Where has MYSTERY WALK been hiding? I was 1st introduced to Robert McCammon with SWAN SONG a truly great novel. I also was very impressed with A BOYS LIFE. All of these novels would make great movies if done by director and / or producer of STAND BY ME or THE GREEN MILE (both written by Stephen King who recommends many McMammon novels). I thank Barnes & Nobel for recommending MYSTERY WALK to me and pass the recommendation forward with this review. JDL 5/18/19

This is another great book by Robert Mccammon. This is the 7th book I've read of his. He sure can tell a story! I plan to read all of his books. My top 3 favs of his so far are "Boy's Life", "Mine" and "Swan Song", with "Boy's Life" being one of the Best books I have ever read, and I read a lot! His writing is similar to Dean Koontz. I am So glad I finally came across this author and his writings.

This is an exciting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Being a Choctaw it was great to see their hertitage as part of the story. My great grandma could move tables and each generation since has special "gifts". My daughter and I have seen ghosts in passing from this world to the next and maybe this book has more truth than you know.

Mr. McCammon has written a multi-layered story about the deep south and it's lifestyle. This book will take you to places and events that are delightfully horrlble and tragic. You will smell, taste and feel the fear as you take this mysterious journey. This may be Robert's best work. The characters will keep you awake at night and have you crying with pity. I hope Mr. McCammon has not retired. He is one of America's gifted writers and the pride of Alabama. Thanks for a wonderful journey.
