Life is good for a group of seventh graders known as the High Street Boys: fall has arrived; Halloween is just around the corner. A brand new scary movie is coming to town and they can't wait to see it.
But life won't stay good for long, for soon the High Street Boys will learn a secret that will change their lives forever.
Deep inside a cave on Ward Rock Mountain, Scratch waits for a bargain to be fulfilled, struck one dark Halloween night when the demon saved river-rat gambler William Pitch from an angry lynch mob. Every thirteen years, Pitch has returned with his grisly bounty, and each time he's left, a little piece of Scratch has left with him.
Now, sixty-five years later, the demon waits impatiently for Pitch to complete the final leg of his journey. This year, business will be concluded, all accounts settled.
It's time for Scratch to rejoin the world.
"(Pitch) moves along at break neck speed, I turned the pages as fast as I could to find out what happened next. Be warned, once you pick this book up, you will find it extremely difficult to put down." - Famous Monsters of Filmland

William Ollie delivers again with PITCH, a sequel to his earlier novel featuring the titular character, William Pitch, Lord of the Mountain. The storyline picks up in 1968, 30 years after the last novel. More evil, nefarious deeds from Mr. PITCH, with a new, yet connected cast kf characters. The writing is briskly paced, and descriptive. Ollie has command of plot and dialogue and tells a whopping good story. As all books from Dark Regions Press, this is a beautifully made volume. The dust jacket from the great Frank Walls sets the tone perfectly, and is..well, PITCH perfect. Buy this, you won't be disappointed.
