"This is horror on a grand scale, reminiscent of Stephen King." -- Publishers Weekly

The book that launched the Pine Deep trilogy

Thirty years ago, a blues musician called the Bone Man killed the devil at the crossroads, only to be beaten and hung like a scarecrow in a cornfield--or so the story goes. Today, the people of Pine Deep celebrate their town's grisly past by luring tourists to the famous haunted hayride, full of chills and scares. But this year, "The Spookiest Town in America" will learn the true meaning of fear. Its residents will see the real face of evil lurking behind the masks of ordinary people. They will feel it--in their hearts, in their bones, in their nightmares. Because evil never dies. It only grows stronger...

"Jonathan Maberry's horror is rich and visceral. It's close to the heart...and close to the jugular." --Kevin J. Anderson

"Maberry has the chops to craft stories at once intimate, epic, real, and horrific." --Bentley Little

"Maberry spins great stories. His (Pine Deep) vampire novels are unique and masterful." --Richard Matheson

"Maberry's works will be read for many, many years to come." --Ray Bradbury

Stephen King, watch out, there is a new kid in town! Jonathan Maberry is every bit as twisted and dark as Stephen King has ever been. Great read! I prefer large print, but this was so good, I didn't mind reading it in regular print.

While this trilogy (this is volume one) has some original ideas and a sympathetic cast, it was rife with continuity errors that drove me up the wall. It probably wouldn't have been noticeable reading them spaced out on their publication schedule, but all in a row they were glaring. It was also overlong for the story told. Maberry has tightened up as a writer since. Still entertaining, but not the quickest read for something that is essentially pulp.
