Fog Is Never A Good Sign

In The Fog
by John Meany
245 pages
$2.99 Kindle edition
Frank and Dora Parker go fishing in their boat and a thick fog rolls down around them. On the lakeshore, a woman walks out of the forest, holding a knife, followed by a man dragging what appears to be a dead body. But only Frank sees any of it - his wife claims to see nothing. Frank thinks he's witnessed a murder, but everyone else thinks Frank needs to stop drinking so much.

I have no idea why I found this during a horror story search. It is a crime drama/murder mystery. The plot is spectacular: a man suffering from dementia and alcoholism witnesses a murder, and no one believes him.

The characters are well-developed, and the family dynamics really propel the storyline. Not a lot of action, but the personal interactions are impressive.

Better than any of the crap that Stephen King has written lately.
