Jacob's Ladder

author: Brian Keaney

Jacob awakens inexplicably in a gray, grim place called Locus, where people his age live in dormitories, wear identical gray uniforms, and eat spongy, tasteless food. Even worse than the dreary conditions is his realization that others have accepted this fate -- something Jacob vows not to do. Setting out with two companions on a perilous journey, Jacob slowly unravels the horrifying truth about the people of Locus. As they journey through fear toward hope, they must choose between a past they cannot remember and a future they cannot predict.

"Simultaneously poignant and puzzling. . . . The climax elegantly answers all questions, making this ghost story more satisfying than most." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
