Publisher's Summary

From the powerful imagination of a horror master comes a bone-chilling tale set in a small town where good and evil are joined in a terrifying, deadly battle.

Evil endures....

Once an idyllic Pennsylvania village, Pine Deep awoke one morning to find itself bathed in a massive bloodletting. Twice in 30 years, the townsfolk have endured the savage hungers of a murderous madman—but if the residents think the death of serial killer Karl Ruger put an end to the carnage, they’re dead wrong.

The nightmare never ends....

Bodies mutilated beyond description, innocents driven to acts of vicious madness. A monstrous evil is preying on the living—and the dead—and turning the quiet little town into hell on earth. Their only hope is to find the source. But the secrets that lurk in the heart of Pine Deep are twisted into its very roots. This time the townspeople aren’t just fighting for their lives but for their very souls.

Keep chilled: listen to more in the Pine Deep trilogy.

    Story
    "The Shadows Grow Longer . . ."

    Having been not terribly impressed by the previous installment, 'Ghost Road Blues,' I was surprised at how much I liked 'Dead Man's Song' by the time I was finished. I would recommend reading 'GRB' first, but there's a fair amount of exposition in the beginning of 'DMS,' which should bring readers up to speed.

    It is in this installment in which we begin to see the depth of the story, and learn more about the lives of several key characters. It also introduces more traditional 'monsters' to the series, but Maberry manages to add his own twists to these legendary creatures. The action heats up as the book advances, and characters form new relationships as the rudiments of a 'group' begin to form.

    My biggest gripe is with the characters, who are sometimes cartoonish and two-dimensional--vile villains and jack-of-all-trades supermen. Also, there are a couple candlelight 'lovemaking' scenes that are amazingly cringe-inducing.

    But for all that, I really enjoyed DMS, and recommend it for fans of Maberry or of more light-hearted horror.

    Lastly, this book seemed many times to be an deliberate and loving homage to one of my favorite Stephen King novels (giving away the title might be a spoiler in some regards, but it is among his earlier works).

    "You have to read all three!"

    The first book leaves you wondering a little where it's going, the second is where it starts to gel and gets creepier. The third book is where it all comes together in quite a thriller!!

    "Better than part 1 and more developed characters"

    I'm a fan of Jonathan Mayberry's other series do I tried this one. The narrator can grow on you if you stick with the series. By the end of the story I found myself scared for the characters which means the author did his job drawing the reader in.

    "I have to finish the series now..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Hmmm....no. It's part of a slow moving trilogy that I'm going to finish out of spite. That's probably a little too harsh, but after the first book I should've cut my losses. Overall, it's not horrible, but the glamorization of the main character as an everyday man who is also a bad-ass is a common told tale. The villains in the book are very unlikeable, so the author has done his job there.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan Maberry? Why or why not?

    Maybe. His writing is fine, but I don't really like how slowly he develops a story. I understand it's a trilogy, but...


    What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The German accent of the dead guy whose name I have chosen to forget.


    Could you see Dead Man’s Song being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    A mini-series maybe. No one famous.

    "the Narrator is perfect!"

    A great follow up to the first. I different pacing than his other series (Joe ledger, Benny imura) which is meant to fit into an overall trilogy. Looking forward to the 3rd. must read for any Jonathan Maberry fan.

    Story
    "The second book."

    I hate to say it, but I never really got into this book. I had several problems with it, not the least of which was how much I lost interest in the story. I couldn't stay focused. My mind kept wandering, and I didn't care enough to backtrack the minutes that I lost.

    The writing was amateurish with horrible analogies, excruciating dialogue, and nonsensical lines that made me say, "what?" Plus, there were a lot of plotholes. I thought it was just me not getting it when I came across plotholes in the first book, but there are more in this one. I kept asking myself, "wasn't she supposed to be doing this? Why did she change her plans?" and "I thought he was in the woods just a moment ago. How did he get home so quickly?" It's like Mr. Maberry never proofreads his manuscripts and his editor doesn't care either... Or, more likely, it's just me who doesn't get it.

    There are a lot of reviewers out there who didn't like Tom Weiner's narration, but to me it was the shining star in this collapsing mess. He once again gives a solid 4 star performance.

    "Wow, what a great series"

    Wow, what a great series. I first became a fan of J. Maberrys with his Joe Ledger Books. After I ripped through all 5 like a wildman, anything from Maberry had to be great so I added the Pine Deep Trilogy to my "To Do" list. The only thing I can complain about is that I waited so long to get started on it. Since the next Ledger book is coming out later this month (3/32/14) I decided to queue them up and go!
    I listened to all three back to back to back so this review is going to encompass all 3 books, but dont worry, Ill avoid spoilers. One piece of advice, forget everything you know about werewolves and vampires. Maberry has a really nice twist that will leave you a little lost until Bad Moon Rising (book 3) when it all comes together nicely.
    Great writing, great story, great characters, great narrator in Tom Weiner. When I first started I felt a Stephen King vibe in the depth of the characters and surroundings, but not a rip off way, just in the buildup. The story unfolds over the three books, and you are given bits along the way. Maberry treats us to a variety of bad guys, not just one or two. You get your pick of who you hate the most. So for me, this was a real good listen. If you like your listens in the 10 hour time frame, then this may be much for you since you'll invest 47 hours in it. If you like a nice long walk in the park of death and mayhem, then this is a good one. @byf2
