The friends race through the old amusement park to try and find answers while trying to avoid a local bully. As their investigation deepens Effie begins to be haunted by dreams that seem to hold the key to everything that is happening. When the investigation falters Effie struggles to overcome self-doubt and the realization that her idyllic vacation spot isn’t what it seems to be.

The Author
A.A. Blair is a child of the 80’s who fell in love with Crystal Beach as a vacation spot with his young family. Much of Aaron’s writing can be easily found peppered throughout cyber space. Readers of his fiction would rightly consider this work obtuse techno-babble, but we all have to make a living somehow. In Mystic of the Midway the Guelph based writer shares a humourous pop-culture paranormal mystery that has scored extremely high with audiences during bed-time reading.
