Amazon Best Books of the Month, June 2010: Award-winning authorMichael Koryta's first foray into the supernatural genre is spellbinding and check-your-doors-and-windows scary, and it all begins with a check and a bottle of water. Filmmaker Eric Shaw had a knack for getting the exact right shot--an unexplained tug that unerringly put him on the right path--until his temper killed his Hollywood career. He gets a shot at redemption when a wealthy young woman commissions a video tribute for her father-in-law, a dying millionaire named Campbell Bradford. A man with a shady past, a town with a rich history, and an antique bottle of water claiming to "cure all ills" lead Shaw to small town West Baden, where things quickly go sideways. Shaw finds himself at odds with Bradford's only surviving family, a bitter and violent great-grandson named Josiah, and that once familiar tug of Shaw's becomes something darker and more dangerous. At its deliciously creepy core,So Cold the Riveris about two men facing down their demons, and what happens when those demons fight back. --Daphne Durham

After seeing his work at her sister's funeral, she hired Eric to produce a film of her father-in-law, Campbell Bradford, as a gift to his family. Aside from knowing …

Film maker Eric Shaw was a rising star in Hollywood. He had a rare talent - he just knew when something was right for the film. He just wasn't as good with people. It drove him out of the industry, out of California and back home to Chicago. Eventually it drove him right out of his marriage to the beautiful Claire.     These days he makes a few bucks creating a sort of video montage tribute for memorial services. He still has the trick of just knowing that something belongs in …
