Beth’s life is perfect, but then Beth has constructed it to be that way. She never steps outside the boundaries and never colors outside the lines, but something happens to crumble it all away. Something in the middle of the night – something no one can remember. Something that brings on a spate of insomnia that affects the entire community.

When Sadie, the town drunk, accuses Beth of being the cause, Beth reacts in shock and fervent denial, but Sadie is insistent. She’s certain that an evil Beth committed is the cause of bringing ruin and calamity to their fair city. Beth knows it’s all untrue, but as the sleepless nights continue, the paranoia grows. Soon a chorus of voices are added to Sadie’s – even her best friend’s.

Beth fights against the tide rising against her, but her adamant defense begins to falter when a strange man knocks on her door. He delivers an ominous message to her daughter, Kirsten. It strikes at the heart of the mystery as to what is happening in Breckenridge, and portends a horrific fate that awaits them all.

The Man with the Blue Hat is classic horror. It’s a chilling, page-turner … a bedtime story designed to evoke nightmares. It’s scary good.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The Man With the Blue Hat is definitely a book worth reading, but don’t take my word for it. Get it and see for yourself. Just make sure it’s not unnaturally cold in the house when you do!


The emotion of horror rendered here is florid and gruesome at the same time and is reminiscent of “Interview with a Vampire” (in style, not content). It’s like bloody perfume – and that’s not a bad thing!


The tension is tuned high in this wonderful tale and I feel that horror and suspense readers will enjoy this story. Get it folks. You will enjoy it if you like being scared to death.


Wow! It was a full, wrap around sensory overload; taste, smell, feel, the whole gambit. She had a way to weave into my head a very ugly, nasty character, bringing back memories of early Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Thanks, Wendy Potocki, for this great read.


Let me just say that I do not get scared; I have always been the brave one. However, reading this book at night in the dark made my skin crawl with goose bumps and the back of my neck burn as if something bad were to happen. Way to go Wendy for writing such great, heated emotion for these characters.
