Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photography, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it's across Massachusetts or across the country. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing--and terrifying--playground of amusements he calls "Christmasland." Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble--and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx's unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He's on the road again and he's picked up a new passenger: Vic's own son.

Joe Hill has his Dad's ability to creep you out, both at the moment that you are listening, and later as it seeps into your thoughts. The narrator (Kate Mulgrew) does a fantastic job. She accurately voiced undead children, ruthless male murderers, and a very strong female protagonist.

I haven't been scared by a novel since the Exorcist and this one did not scare me but it was a very good book. Vic McQueen uses a bridge created by her mind to travel to different places. In her travels she meets up with an evil man who steals children to "save" them. Later, he steals her son and she sets out to get him back. Tons of action, great characters and in the audio version Kate Mulgrew's creepy, raspy voice all combine for a great listen. The best book I've read this year so far.
