The Bayou
by Wesley Cavins
Avalyn is new on the job, a rookie of the Louisiana Wildlife Enforcement Agency, after being transferred in from out of state. Garrett grew up in swamp country, becoming an LWE Agent after failing to escape his small town trappings. Garrett is a week into training Avalyn when they are tasked with escorting a biologist, from the Louisiana Wildlife Department's research staff, into the bayou for field research.

After releasing tagged gators deep in the swamp, they become lost while investigating what is possibly a large gator nest. A tropical storm moves in just as they realize they are not alone.

The local legend of wetland poachers is starting to seem all too real.

“Finished reading The Bayou last week. I've had nightmares about it every night since.”
“Wesley Cavins, somehow, is able to scrape the ocean floor of the human psyche. And from there, drill holes into the neurons that trigger fear.”
“The Bayou is TERRIFYING, even in the middle of a bright sunny day at the park.”
“There is a place scarier than hell itself. That place is The Bayou.”
The Bayou - Companion Score
Do you listen to music when you're reading a good book? Something to set the tone of the book?

Concept albums have been around for a while, but a few albums have been popping up over the years as scores to movies that do not actually exist. There's a story summary, but nothing beyond a few paragraphs explaining what the movie might be about, if it did exist.

What if that movie existed in the form of a book?
With a score to accompany it?

Welcome to The Bayou.

A harrowing horror thriller set deep in the backwaters of America's most notorious wetlands. Accompanied by an expertly crafted score that, when paired with the book, puts the reader neck deep in this dark descent into mother nature's nightmare.
