Looking for a short scary snack? Then look no further. Demmer has written another delightful frightening short tale that can be read on your lunch break.

Dive into the haunting tale of disappearing folks and a strange bridge in what feels like the middle of nowhere. Suicide the reports say, but is that what really happened? You will have to read for yourself to learn the truth.

I enjoyed the read, it was concise, creepy and entertaining. You can find the story on Amazon in Kindle format.

Synopsis: Sylvia Bernstein doesn’t want to end up on a dead-end path like a former journalism colleague. She begins searching the tabloid’s archives for a story that can get her career back on track. A strange bridge, with an abnormally high rate of suicides, seems like the perfect place to start. She journeys to the little town, eager to investigate, but encounters a tale far more sinister than she ever expected…
