The Fallen Boys
Black T-Shirts Books
At the outset, The Fallen Boys centers around Marshal and Claire Deakens and their young boy, Noah. Life is decent and simple enough: Marshal’s a videographer for themed parties while Claire grinds out her days in a cubicle with aspirations of being a writer. Their son, Noah is a quiet, at times brooding, preteen trying to figure out where he fits in until a fatal fall at the local mall ends his short life. Losing a child is the stuff of nightmares for any parent, but in Aaron Dries hands, death is merely the beginning of suffering to follow.
Struggling to cope with the gaping hole punched through their hearts, Clair and Marshal search for whatever meaning remains of their lives. When Marshal finds a flash drive stuffed in a teddy bear once belonging to his son, a terrible truth starts to unravel about his son’s alleged suicide. Evidence points to a secret internet friend who had won over the trust of his troubled boy. The grieving father never expected a reply to the e-mail he sent his son’s secret internet bestie. Nor did he expect the digital footprints would lead to a chance encounter with a stranger who might be the only living person to hold the key to the truths about son’s death. With nothing but hope and heartache to guide him, Marshal follows the darkest path to a house full of dread and destruction where surviving the truth may not be worth the cost.
Utilizing his experience as an addiction and violence councillor for troubled youths, Aaron lures us into the vilest, most depraved well of the human condition where light becomes shadows with teeth and bad intentions. Hammering home each terror into tangible echoes that assault our senses long into the night, Aaron Dries proves himself a new voice in horror worth looking over our shoulders for.
