Minnesota writer Matthew Cole Levine delivers an occult masterpiece

Matthew Cole Levine’s HOLLOW Hooks You Up With A Brand Of Minnesota Horror Only A True Midwest Could Master

ST. PAUL, MN, USA, June 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the desolate woods of northern Wisconsin, there is a cabin. Inside the cabin is a figure of evil, a witch performing an unknown ritual. There is also a young boy, Ryan Amherst, who is part of this strange ceremony: a model of sacrifice and resurrection known only to the inhabitants of the small town of Grange.

Nearby in the village, a man named Nathan Amherst – Ryan’s father – meets a middleman named John Linden. Nathan asks when his part of the “contract” will be fulfilled. John can only assure Nathan that he will be compensated for his troubles.

Meanwhile, in Milwaukee, a police officer named Ben Dmitrovich has a tense confrontation with his superiors. After beating up a suspect in a domestic violence case, Ben is placed on a mandatory suspension – another in a long line of heinous police scandals. Ben, struggling to overcome his own personal demons, decides to retreat to his family’s cabin up north.

By coincidence or a twist of morbid fate, he ends up in Grange and meets a woman named Maria Amherst – Nathan’s wife, who apparently died seven months ago. As he uncovers the mystery of Maria’s reappearance, Ben uncovers a shocking pattern of child disappearances and strange resurrections. A young piano prodigy named Amy Dorian may be the town’s next victim, but Ben races to save her before it’s too late. Rushing toward cosmic judgment, Ben has one last chance at redemption or damnation.
