‘Loose Animal’ By J.L. Warren

Welcome to Beech Bay, a quaint and remote seaside town where dark figures assemble in the twilight surf, shadowy operatives skulk in crumbling alleys, and the mysterious reality-bending Hum is ever present.

It’s a cold reality that Sheriff Williamson will quickly come face to terrifying face with as a simple welfare check may turn out to be the last call he’ll ever respond to.
