State Road 177 runs along the Suwannee River, between Fargo, Georgia, and the Okefenokee Swamp. Drive that route from east to west, and you'll cross six bridges. Take it from west to east, and you might find seven. But you'd better hope not. Titus and Davina Bell leave their hotel in Fargo for a second honeymoon canoeing the Okefenokee Swamp. But shortly before they reach their destination, they draw up to a halt at the edge of a rickety bridge with old stone pilings, with room for only one car.When, much later, a tow-truck arrives, the driver finds Titus lying in the middle of the road, but Davina is nowhere to be found.

She had become something wrathful and insane, an urban legend waiting to happen.

While this "Gothic horror" never really got "scary" it very much painted a spooky atmospheric environment and setting. I actually enjoyed most of the characters and I really like the idea of a bridge appearing out of nowhere and leading to doom.
