The Man With the Blue Hat
by Wendy Potocki
Our Review of The Man With the Blue Hat

Beth's life is perfect, but then she's constructed it to be that way. She never steps outside the boundaries and never colors outside the lines, but something happens to crumble it all away. Something in the middle of the night--something no one can remember. Something that brings on a spate of insomnia that affects the entire community.

When Sadie, the town drunk, accuses her of being the cause, she reacts in shock and fervent denial, but Sadie is insistent. She's certain that an evil Beth committed is the cause of bringing ruin and calamity to their fair city. Beth knows it's all untrue, but as the sleepless nights continue, the paranoia grows. Soon a chorus of voices are added to Sadie's--even her best friend's. Fighting the tide rising against her, her adamant defense begins to falter when a strange man knocks on her door. Delivering an ominous message to her daughter, Kirsten, it strikes at the heart of the mystery, and portends a horrific fate that awaits them all.

The Man with the Blue Hat is classic horror. It's a chilling, page-turner ... a bedtime story designed to evoke nightmares. It's scary good.

My Imagination Dreams

Every now and then I flash back to a simpler time
Where pain was a stumped toe from a failed climb

True love came from the heart and couldn't be bought
But then I open my eyes and look around at this world
I think somewhere along the way I may have lost that girl
