In the secluded mountains of Jacksonville County, Virginia, a covered bridge stretches across the Bellamont River. No one has crossed the bridge in twenty years. Some people believe that gigantic werewolves with retractable claws and razor-sharp fangs live on the other side. Would you have the courage to cross the bridge? On a warm August night, three teenagers, Jared Baker, Harold Prioleau, and Chase Avignone make a trip to the covered bridge. But only Harold and Chase return home. What happened to Jared? Chase Avignone is a high school football star with a secret. He’s bigger, faster, and stronger than everyone else on the field. Why? Is he taking steroids? Human growth hormone? Or is there some other reason why he’s such a beast on the gridiron? When Jacksonville police detectives Logan Michaels and Cai Nguyen delve into Jared’s disappearance, their investigation leads them to Chase Avignone and his shocking secret. Are the werewolves of Jacksonville County real or are they just an urban legend? You will have to cross the bridge to find the truth. Joel Eden lives in Chantilly, Virginia with his wife, Kaye, two sons, Andrew and Michael, and his golden retriever, Louise. Joel loves Virginia Tech football (Go Hokies!) and coaching youth sports. He is also the author of Lazarus Kaine, the story of a man who loses control of his fears. And he’s afraid of werewolves.
