The weekend of July Fourth, 1971 The jukebox is playing "Everything is Beautiful"...Old Glory flaps against the blue, Southern sky...The aromas of burgers and hot dogs hang in the still air...Children laugh as they play with sparklers in the park...And the night fills with screams when a girl's body is found, her throat torn out by savage teeth... Summer Moore is a waitress at the Dixie Dinette.Twenty, blonde and beautiful, Summer desperately needs to break free from her mother's constant nagging and the dull monotony of life in the small mountain town of Stonebridge, Virginia. She wants out. His buddies in 'Nam called him the Midnight Rider.Trager's the name on his Army jacket, but a dark shadow of the unknown hangs over this Vietnam vet as he rides into town on a night-black Electra Glide, called on a quest that's tainted by blood. Sheriff Buddy Hicks doesn't like hippies in his town...especially not long-haired hippie bikers.As soon as the sheriff saw him, he knew the biker was trouble. Now something feels different in Stonebridge-something he doesn't understand-and he's not going to put up with radicals in his town...not some biker, and not some smart mouth like Summer Moore. There are secrets in the woods.Ben Castle, who summoned the biker with a note scrawled in blood...Louise Moore, who refuses to lose control of her daughter like she lost her husband...Summer and the biker, locked in a dance, an embrace of shadows that has lasted for centuries...And even the mountains themselves hold secrets... It's a rock and roll Grand Guignol.It's a death-dance in the moonlight.ghostflowersIt's a love story. With blood.
