Publisher's summary

Antoine DeWitt is a man down on his luck. Broke and recently fired, he knows the winning Money Carlo ticket that has landed in his mailbox from a car dealership is nothing more than a scam. The promise of $5,000, though, is too tantalizing to ignore.

Jon Dangle is a keeper of secrets, many of which are buried deep beneath his dealership. He works hard to keep them hidden, but occasionally sacrifices are required, sacrifices who are penniless, desperate, and who will not be missed. Sacrifices exactly like DeWitt.

When Antoine steps foot on Dangle's car lot, it is with the hope of easy money. Instead, he finds himself trapped in a deep, dark hole, buried alive. If he is going to survive the nightmare ahead of him, if he has any chance of seeing his wife and child again, Antoine will have to do more than merely hope. He will have to fight his way back to the surface, and pray that Jon Dangle's secrets do not kill him first.

Don't trust car dealerships!

Woo, that was a doozy! It was exhilarating, disgusting and creepy!

Hicks really is good at describing horrific gore and I found myself cringe and shudder at the some of the scenes.
Antoine was a great character and I was really rooting for him till the end.

Justin Thomas James was great for the narration. I appreciated him using different voices for the characters and I loved hearing him swear 🤣

Definitely recommend this if you like the bugs from Starship Troopers and the horrors they displayed because Hicks does his bugs WAY better!
