On May 21st, 2011, seven graduate students in Religious Studies set out from the University of Colorado in search of God. Armed with only their faith and the scriptures, they rented a small cluster of cabins on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains.
None of them were ever heard from again.
On October 29th, 2013, a disarticulated femur is discovered in a mountain lion's den. Forensics confirms the bone belongs to one of the missing seven, triggering a massive search of the surrounding wilderness.
No other evidence is found.
On November 13th, the families of the missing students rent the same cabins and attempt to recreate the final days of their loved ones in hopes of divining their fate. Only this time, thanks to an unusual bacterium isolated from the femur, they know where to look.
Nothing can prepare them for the truth.
This is their story. The story of what they found, what they lost…and what remains.
PRAISE FOR REMAINS
"Pitch-perfect pacing...gripping." - Cemetery Dance Magazine
"McBride does a wicked job here of building (not only) some serious suspense, but an expectation that kept me flipping the pages as quick as I could." - The Horror Fiction Review
"Remains is ambitious, and intelligent. The tone reminded me of something by Richard Matheson, in its matter-of-fact approach to the investigations. The story works as a piece of suspense fiction, a techno-thriller, a horror yarn, and it's also a science fiction story at heart." - Horror Drive-In Reviews
