Television singing sensation Calvin Hubbard has been caught with his hand in cookie jar. An illicit affair with a contest judge costs him not only the competition crown, but his musical credibility as well. Fleeing the media fallout, Calvin exiles himself to the backwoods town of Harvey, Virginia. With a little solitude and a lot of cheap beer, he plans to write the next great rock and roll album and resurrect his career. But Calvin doesn't know that a man has just been buried alive in the woods outside of town, and that this quiet murder is just the first in a string of macabre events. As the town goes silently mad around him, Calvin is unable to abandon the record of his dreams. Drunk on inspiration and blinded by an inexplicable lust, he careens headlong into the maelstrom, only to discover that he may be the town's only salvation. Something is alive in the trees—an ageless, nameless evil—and it's coming for everyone in Harvey. Now Calvin has to decide whether to run or to stay and fight… if it isn’t already too late.

"...sexy and full of scares. Harvey is dark, well-crafted, and downright menacing." -Philippa Ballantine, award-winning author of Chasing the Bard

Phil Rossi breaks new ground with Harvey--visit http://www.harveythenovel.com for the Harvey Sessions--the very album that Calvin Hubbard is composing and recording at the Little Rock Motel.

Lyrical beauty, dark tragedy, clash of cultures and worlds.

Wow. Phil has created a dark world here, rooted in the fantasy world of american idol and the homespun world of small town USA. He's populated this isolated country hamlet with white trash and hard working specimens, lazy and hardworking politicians and cops, transplants, recent and well established, from the big city, and given them all their own voices, their own desires, their own demons.

Then he set loose a nightmare to swallow them up.

This review won't cover the plot, won't spoil the fun in any way, only tell you that by subscribing you'll hear wonderfully written characters with clear voices and quirks, and look over their shoulder as they navigate small town treacheries, personal demons, and the monster that's come to swallow them all.

Rossi's a musician, and his lyrical but craggy voice will lull you into his world, and root you in place with his characters, deep enough that you'll feel every loss, every tragedy along the ride. It's a slice of culture shock and the true shock of unstoppable horror that overtakes the world he makes you care for.

Oh no! I hope the haters are wrong...

...but I have to agree that it started out great -- first chapter is excellent -- but it is downhill from there. I'm only on Ch 5 tho....

Just Run

Better than staring off into space and listening to silence, but only just.
