Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel

From a master of horror comes an apocalyptic showdown between the residents of a secluded, rural town and the deadly evil that confronts them wherever they turn.

Evil doesn’t die.

The cozy little town of Pine Deep buried the horrors of its past a long time ago. Thirty years have gone by since the darkness descended and the Black Harvest began, a time when a serial killer sheared a bloody swath through the quiet Pennsylvania village. The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”

It just grows stronger.

But then—a month before Halloween—it begins. Unspeakably desecrated bodies. Inexplicable insanity. An ancient evil walks the streets, drawing in those who would fall to their own demons and seeking to shred the very soul of this rapidly fracturing community. Yes, the residents of Pine Deep have drawn together and faced a killer before. But this time, evil has many faces—and the lust and will to rule the earth. This struggle will be epic.

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

What the Critics Say

“Maberry supplies plenty of chills, both earthbound and otherworldly, in this atmospheric horror novel…This is horror on a grand scale, reminiscent of Stephen King’s heftier works.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "Gross story"
    Would you try another book from Jonathan Maberry and/or Tom Weiner?

    As long as it wasn't as crude, gross, and dirty as this one. Tom Weiner does a good job at the narration, too bad it's a yuck story


    Has Ghost Road Blues turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I just don't like stories that everyone is sick in the mind---dirty thoughts, want to hurt people and enjoy hurting people, dirty sex, devious, lying shameful people. I like a good ghost story or murder story, it just has to have some redeeming qualities.

    Story
    "Not your usual Maberry book"
    Would you listen to Ghost Road Blues again? Why?

    I will not be revisiting this book for another listen. Why? Not because it wasn't a good book, because it was (once it got going), but once you know the "set-up" for the series you won't be missing anything needed for the next book(s). The story is well written and while setting up the next books, you'll be able to guess who/what will come about.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The idea of the town being an epicenter of evil. I'm a big fan of Halloween and I'm sure my affinity for the holiday played a part of this books appeal


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

    The voices and personality given to each character is wonderful. The softer female voice infused with strength all the way to the gruff evil overbearing voices make you imagine these characters in a vivid manner.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the book progresses a little slow at first and I had to make myself keep listening. With that being said, the book reels you in toward the end and makes you wonder what book 2 will bring.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read the other series Mr. Maberry has written and this story/writing is not done in the same manner. If you are a fan of Mr. Maberry's other works (Benny Imura & Joe Ledger series) know that this is a deviation from what you would expect.

    "Don't bother"
    What disappointed you about Ghost Road Blues?

    I could only get in 15 minutes then I couldn't stand it, it reads like a teenage boys version of a horror story, I HATED IT


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I took a punt on this book and lost because I wasn't able to return it WHICH MAKES ME FURIOUS because it really was a waste of a credit

    "Slow start to a great series."

    Don't let the low ratings fool you away from this book. The book seems to start off slow but it gets better as the story goes on. Once again, Jonathan Maberry wrote another masterpiece series.

    Not sure, I only listened to a couple chapters because i couldn't get past the monotone narrator

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

    Absolutely not!!!


    What character would you cut from Ghost Road Blues?

    The narrator

    Do not waste your money or credits. I'm requesting my credit to be returned since I could only tolerate a couple of chapters.

    "Ghost Road Awesome Read"
    Where does Ghost Road Blues rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook ranks in the higher middle. I still have some audiobook to listen to but when I get finished with my other audiobooks, the ranking GRB might change.


    What other book might you compare Ghost Road Blues to and why?

    I might compared it to some of Stephen King's supernatural works.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't listened to any of his other works.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Val attacks Carl for revenge for her father.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to get the second and third book now!!

    Any additional comments?

    Really very boring. Didn't finish it. I liked the zombie series he did so I thought I'd try other books by this author... Bad idea. Waste of a credit.
