Deathwatch on the Bayou, softback adventure for Chill, by Gali Sanchez
“The Bayou waits and watches, patient as an open grave, as a young man places a small boat under the moss-laden branches of the Cyprus trees. A cottonmouth, angry at the intrusion, drops into his boat from the trees, but the young man uses his pole to flip the snake into the water: “You won’t take me, not while I’m still breathing.”
Suddenly, the pole snags on the deadfall and rotting vegetation that clots the vile water. The young man struggles unsuccessfully, but finally is forced to reach down into the muck to free the pole. A slimy hand grasps his own and pulls him down into the water.
Deathwatch on the Bayou features two adventures: “Timbalier Terror”, a tale of the bayou’s living dead; and “Mystery of Isle au Pitre”, the story of a gulf island that claims its visitors forever.”
