Publisher's Summary

It is the time of the Great Depression. The dustbowl has turned the western skies red and thousands leave their homes seeking a better life. Marcus Connelly seeks not a life, but a death - a death for the mysterious scarred man who murdered his daughter. And soon he learns that he is not alone. Countless others have lost someone to the scarred man. They band together to track him, but as they get closer, Connelly begins to suspect that the man they are hunting is more than human. It is said that he who hunts monsters should take care lest he thereby become a monster, and as the chase becomes increasingly desperate, the scarred man’s pursuers are forced to choose between what is right and what is necessary. Having come so far and lost so much, Connelly must decide just how much more he is willing to sacrifice to have his revenge.

What the Critics Say

"Mr Shivers is a startling debut, a deft amalgam of thriller, cerebral horror and American gothic." (GUARDIAN)

"A ravishing debut . . . Supremely chilling, it never loses its grip in its journey to the edge of the apocalypse." (DAILY MAIL)

"Read[s] like a collaboration between Stephen King and John Steinbeck . . . will captivate horror readers hungry for new voices." (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

"Hitting the shelves to rapturous applause . . . Mr Shivers stands out as a text rich in both themes and genre exploration." (SCIFI NOW)

"Sprinkled with hobo folklore, Bennett’s supernatural dust storm of a debut offers a killer premise and may remind readers of vintage Stephen King." (AMAZON (BEST BOOKS OF THE MONTH))

    "Good Listen."

    Kept me entertained and was well Narrated - the journey was good, easy listen no difficult concepts to comprehend. Only issue I had was I kind of guessed where things were heading about half way through, which was not a great problem as such but I wish I hadn't done. If you've got a spare credit and are looking for something to pass away a day give it go :)
