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 The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”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)

    "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.

    "Horrible narration"
    Would you try another book from Jonathan Maberry and/or Tom Weiner?

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


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

    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


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Surprised!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The story is different and fresh. Not at all what I expected. A happy surprise.


    What about Tom Weiner’s performance did you like?

    Excellent. He does a great job of individualizing each character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Held my interest from first word to last. Couldn't listen fast enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Have the entire trilogy now, listening to number 3.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great book, love the characters, love the story, love the whole trilogy.


    Any additional comments?

    I have a long daily commute and Audible has been a God send. I accidently came across Maberry's books and I am hooked! I really enjoyed this trilogy. All 3 of the books are great and I have to say I was disappointed when I heard "Audible hopes you have enjoyed......." on Bad Moon Rising. Maberry's Joe Ledger series is great too! Sadly I have listened to everything of his that Audible has and now have to wait for the next one.

    This was the first book I read by Jonathan Mayberry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book kept me entertained and wanting more. I often found myself sitting in my drive way or the parking lot at work just to listen to more. The character development was wonderful. I easily feel in love with some characters and absolutely hated others. This book ends with you wanting more and asking lot of questions, so I can understand why some people were a little frustrated by that. Fortunately for me, I did not start the series until all three had been released so I was able to listen to all three right away. I did finish this series and thought it was great. I will read more by Mayberry.

    I thought the narrator did a fantastic job.
