Opulent doesn't begin to describe the Arizona getaway where Lowell Thurman, his wife Rachel, and their three young sons have come for one glorious week. Everything at The Reata is perfect - although Rachel is a bit unnerved by the openly lustful gaze of one of the gardeners, something she doesn't mention to Lowell. Nor does he tell her about the frightening sensation he has in the pool of hands clutching at him, trying to pull him under.

This one starts out kind of slow, then piques your interest and keeps going and keeps going and turns darker and darker and darker. I always love how Bentley decides to actually give the background as to why the disturbing incidents are happening, in this one, I would have liked a little more of that throughout the book rather than completely at the end....but it still was amazing!

A woman searching for a sister lost at sea. A man bent on finding lost treasure. A mother who has lost all hope. A maniac who believes all life exists for his pleasure. The man who would keep them all safe. Together, they will all seek below the waves for treasures long buried, and riches beyond belief. But those treasures hide something. Something ancient, something dark. A creature that exists only to feed on those that would enter into its realm. A creature... of The Deep.

It doesn't seem like the perfect house, but screw it, it's good enough to rent for a year. Unfortunately for Boyd, Adeline, and their two young daughters, it's immediately clear they chose the wrong place. The nightmare begins with violent coughs and headaches. Food starts to rot almost as soon as they take it inside. A pet tarantula goes missing. Some family members begin to exhibit creepy behavior. Then the ghosts arrive, and all hell breaks loose....

This was a shirt listen spanning a bit over 6 and a half hours but the story jumps right in and rarely stops with a brief overly explained eye issue that was a bit drawn out. Other then that, fully enjoyable!

An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

This was a great read(listen) 😁. The tie in of Holly Gibney and references to the Mr. Mercedes novel was awesome for us fans! The story itself was sometimes hard to follow and I will have to revisit it again to catch some things I still don't get, but all in all awesome!

Spanning over 20 years, 20 masters and modern authors of hardcore horror share their most bad-ass stories in this special edition from Comet Press. Many hard to find and out of print, some that were banned, Necro Files covers every imaginable mode of mayhem including serial killers, necrophilia, cannibals, werewolves, zombies, sex fetishes, psychopaths, snuff, occult, and more stories that dial into the dark side of human nature.

Would you consider the audio edition of Necro Files to be better than the print version?

I never read the print version, but this version was so dark and revolting! Definitely hit my "gross factor" at a level 10!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Necro Files?

ALL of it! Some of the stories are hard to follow at times, but WOW...from the deviant sexual behaviors rampant throughout the stories to the gruesome murders and the twisted characters, it all ALMOST gave me nightmares!

Would you listen to another book narrated by Eric A. Shelman?

No, this narrator was not as easy to listen to and had a hard time with differentiating some of the characters at times, this made it hard to follow some stories.

If you could rename Necro Files, what would you call it?

The Deviant Side of Human Nature

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth it if you enjoy the decrepit, gross and disgustingly vile!

Daniel Martin has never forgotten his childhood encounters with Frank Watkins, the man who built his family a summer home out of cardboard and plywood. Frank's gaze was oddly confusing, as if he was attempting to discern the proper way to behave because he didn't know how to respond in a human manner. Since Frank obviously wasn't an alien, young Daniel thought maybe the man was crazy. In the end, Daniel would learn the terrifying truth about Frank Watkins. And as an adult, Daniel is about to discover there are more of them out there.
