UNBURY CAROL is a bizarre story of good vs. evil with a strange mix of....magical realism....old time west...tricks and tricksters....and even a bit of paranormal when monster ROT enters the dreaded world Carol calls Howltown.
Carol's frightening (secretive) health condition makes her appear dead as a doornail when she literally falls into a coma and almost no one knows about it, so....after confidant and best buddy John Bowie dies; Who should she tell?....Who can she trust?....Her husband?
Get ready for the weirdest of weird as you meet up with a whole slew of oddball characters and progress along the ole trail, including the dangerous and creepy bad guy Smoke, (who loves a good fire) AND the trail's most legendary trickster of an outlaw, John Moxie, who rushes in hopefully to save the day (and an old flame) from a fate worse than death....being buried alive. (no spoiler here)
UNBURY CAROL - Just a plain old fun read albeit with an ending that could have packed a more powerful punch! That being said, bring on more Josh Malerman. I'll gladly read them all!
