Mystery Walk Author:Robert R. McCammon Two boys with extraordinary powers...to use for good or evil. Restless spirits roaming the dark Alabama woods, infesting a Chicago hotel, haunting an amusement park ride. A lustful girl who drowns, then reappears. A ghastly family massacre...Wherever human fears hide, there in the shadows lurks the Shape Changer. — They were known as the healer a... more »nd the demon-boy. They faced each other for the first time at a tent revival meeting. The inexplicable energy that passed between them frightened the two boys. Each began dreaming the same dream: an eagle made of smoke locked in combat with a snake made of fire. And seeing things: a bestial shape with glowing red eyes.
Billy Creekmore and Wayne Falconer would feel that same eerie charge every time their paths crossed over the next decade, as each undertook his Mystery Walk through life.
Billy used his powers to set the dead to rest in the traditional way his Choctaw grandmother had tutored him.
Wayne used his healing gifts to raise money for his minister father's evangelical crusade.
