Listeners who find themselves with this new work from the author of Vampire: The Richard Chase Murders, and The Bundy Murders are in for an excursion into the weird and the bizarre. From a medieval-esque murder in a small town museum to the jilted boyfriend who decided that his former girlfriend needed to die on her 21st birthday. And then there's the demented son who returns home to live with his mother and stepfather, and one night in their beautiful mansion sitting atop a high bluff overlooking the Ohio River, slaughters them. Each case will keep you on the edge of your seat.
There are a million ways to die in the Rockies - and a million predators, natural or otherwise. But even a seasoned mountain dweller like Preacher is shocked by the latest horror lurking in the hills. Trappers are being hunted down like animals. Captured. Murdered. Mutilated. Their hearts carved out of their chests. Some of the victims were Preacher's friends. Now two others - Audie and Nighthawk - have gone missing. Preacher is determined to track them down before they end up on the chopping block.
"Captured, escaped, captured, repeat"
Zombie socialite Amanda Feral and her undead friends, Wendy and Gil, shamble into an idyllic seaside village for an event promoting Amanda's memoir, Happy Hour of the Damned and, as usual, to consume cute coastal townsfolk. As is their unique luck, plans are derailed when they become embroiled in a gory mystery at the Miss Sand Flea Pageant.
"Pleading for Peace in Chicago: 'We Could Be Looking at a Bloodbath'" is from the May 28, 2016 US section of The New York Times. It was written by Monica Davey and Mitch Smith and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
