This collection includes:

"Walking" - A camping trip in the wilderness leads to bloodshed when an inexperienced outdoorsman trespasses on forbidden ground.

"The Bridge" - A cancer patient’s recovery takes an unexpected turn when she discovers that cheating death comes with a hidden cost.

"Squatting" - A homeless man seeking shelter from the cold discovers that some abandoned houses hold deadly ties to the past.

"Maker’s Hill" - A curious ghost hunter unearths a town’s dark history of violence and learns that some secrets are meant to stay buried.

"The First Bad Thing" - The murder of a child’s furry friend sends him on a hunt for a vicious supernatural predator that only he can stop.

There’s no end to the terror found within these tales of dread. But whatever you do, try not to scream too loud. You never know who might be listening in the dark.

The narrator sounds like a robot

too slow-paced not enough feeling in the narration while the stories are actually really good they're really hard to follow with his narration I'll have to get this on Kindl and read it myself

Love these!

Ron Ripley is a great writer of horror! He should be held in the same esteem as King and Barker. Can't recommend these highly enough.

5 Great Shorts

I absolutely love Ripley’s stories and his vivid imagination and this book is no exception with good narration. I loved all of the stories and a couple had a couple of character from his previous series and makes you want to never live in New Hampshire. Recommend if you like short horror and ghosts

Why do I like the outdoors again?

Being outdoors is great, but there’s sure a lot of the unknown and creepy out there! This collection of Ron Ripley’s short stories is a good reminder of that. A series with Jimmy would make me really happy!

Exciting and awesome

Don't listen to this in the dark. Its wonderfully bone chilling. Narration is spot on. No complaints loved each and every minute of these stories.

Don’t listen and the dark!

I love Ron Ripley books, not all of them produce fear in me. Not to say they don’t have a fear factor because all of his books do, But being a grown adult I know the difference between entertainment in real life. Well let me just tell you it gets distorted in this book of scary stories especially book too because when the villain comes on the scene he reminded me of a from Grove Village who is very very scary. Not to mention Book two has huge twist The walk and squatting a very scary as well but be leery of the second one just saying. There’s one with a boy who gets revenge for his toy being stolen and another one who mind the business of one too many ghosts they’re all really good and I highly recommend this book. I mean it is a Ron Ripley production or rather scare Street, so you really can’t go wrong. Just know even if you think you’re above being scared watch out!
