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 The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”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

    Story
    "Monsters are MONSTERS!"

    In Pine Deep, Monsters are MONSTERS! None of this touchy feely, pansy nonsense that Monsters have become. In this world created by Jonathan Maberry good and evil are clearly defined, and the worst monsters walk in the light of day. I've read the Pine Deep Trilogy once a year for several years. Always in Fall, always finishing on or near Halloween. It's just appropriate. "Ghost Road Blues" was the first work of Mr. Maberry's I ever read. It hooked me like no other story had of the genre. I flew through the trilogy. He said at the end of 3, that we'd maybe revisit the characters. I'm still waiting for more novel. The tidbits in the Rot and Ruin series and the Material Witnesses short story (Joe Ledger Series) are not enough. Please, Mr. Maberry truly revisit Pine Deep. One more novel, please. I decided for a change of pace, I'd try the Audible version. I loved it Mr. Weiner was AWESOME in bringing the characters out of my mind into my ears. I recommend everything Jonathan Maberry writes. I've read many more of his works and truly loved them all. He is the best descriptive writer I've ever read. The fight scenes alone, are worth your time and money. I really can't say enough how much I love this Trilogy.

    Story
    "I keep runing into books that are series."

    I wasn't trying to follow a series but I just might Finish these one. When I first got this book it didn't say Book 1 or part of a series, and that happens many times. Anyhow, this story was scary and had scary voices. The narrator was very awesome and gave me goosebumps.

    "good read!!"

    a little slow to start but ended up being a really good read! I'm hoping the second book is a little more spooky though this is supposed to be a horror series so I'm hoping the horror shows up!!

    "small town mayhem"

    Truly scary horror tale of evil that won't go away. Evil that just won't die vs. a cast of well developed characters. Starting the second book right now.

    "Good story, slow start"

    I like the Joe Leadger series figured I would give this series a try. It is good just very slow to start. For the first part of book, did not feel like the voice actor really wanted to read it. It got better through the book.

    Story
    "Ok... It's Ben 3.5 years since I bought this...."

    And I've tried listening to it several times... Can't.
    I absolutely love the Joe Ledger books. And when Maberry tied these in with Joe Ledger, I figured I'd give it a try.
    Mistake.
    This book is a mature night. The narrator makes it worse. VERY disappointed.
    Over dramatic, and painful. It's like a 15 year old Maberry read a good horror book by someone like Stephen King, and tried to follow suite. It's not the worse thing I've ever bought, but with an Audible library closing in on 900 books, it is definitely not worth finishing. I'd put it near the bottom simply because I COULD NOT FINISH IT.
    So... DO read Jonathan Maberry's Joe Ledger Books. (They are fantastic!)
    Do not waste your money/time on this.

    "Chilling tale"

    This is one story I will absolutely listen to again and again. The narrator's voice was perfect for this story. He was able to bring me to tears, terrify me, and make me smile.

    "no horror"

    there is no horror. when you buy a horror book you expect it to scare you if you are alone and you are reading at night. this predictable story does not cut it. won't waste my credits on the rest of the series.

    "Performance was a little to gritty for me."

    I liked the story but the performance didn't enhance it so much as reminded me there was a guy with a deep voice reading it. May the later books are more refined by I'm not ready to dive in to listen.
