Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY FREAKING CRAP OK, so I really like a good twist on the undead, so I picked this one up on one of my library raids and FINISHED IT THAT DAY. It was tense, it was gory, the multiple storylines made sense. The plot was both predictable and unexpected, making it very pleasing to the reader. DEFINITELY want more of Adam Mansbach's work, because this guy is SICK AND TWISTED and his writing puts that fact into delicious perspective.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the best thriller/horror hybrids to come along this year. ... a lean, intoxicating funhouse of a book that is difficult to put down.”
