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 The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”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

Quotes & Awards

  • “Every so often you discover an author whose writing is so lyrical that it transcends mere storytelling. Jonathan Maberry is just such an author.”

    Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author

  • “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

  • “Without a doubt this prolific author is the next Stephen King. Maberry deserves more than a Bram Stoker Award for this; he deserves Bram Stoker to rise from his grave and shake his hand.”

    New World Reviews

  • “A chilling tale—lyrical, melodic, and dark. Maberry breathes new life into modern horror fiction.”

    Scott Nicholson, bestselling author of The Red Church

  • “Serves up scares like pancakes at a church social.”

    Gregory Frost, bestselling author of Shadowbridge

  • “If I were asked to select only one new voice in horror fiction to read today, it would be Jonathan Maberry.”

    Katherine Ramsland, bestselling author of The Vampire Companion

  • “If you think small town horror has nothing new to offer, you have a surprise in store. Ghost Road Blues demonstrates that even the most haunted town in America is unprepared for the full depth of evil, either human or inhuman.”

    Don D’Ammassa, author of Blood Beast

  • Winner of the 2006Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel

    " I'm sorry to say that this is one book that i haven't finished reading. Firstly because it scared the begeesus out of me and now secondly, cos i've put it somewhere and can't find it! I'm sure that it'll turn up one day when i'm in the right mindframe to be freaked out. "

    " Maybe it was the narrator (I "read" this as an audiobook), but I thought this was AWFUL! Couldn't stand the characters or dialogue. I think I only made it to the second disk out of seven or eight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michealbank | 12/19/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe DeRouen | 11/8/2013

    " An excellent, "old school" vampire story. No sparkly vampires here! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzee | 8/25/2013

    " Liked the book. Can't wait to read the next in the series. Pretty dark book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaimie | 5/5/2013

    " The first 50% of this book could be condensed into 1 chapter or gotten rid of entirely. In fact, all three of the books could be condensed into 1 book which gets to the point. If anyone recommends this to you because its like The Stand, they are lying. "

    " Slow to begin, good in the middle, slow at the end. 1st part of a trilogy so the end leaves you hanging. "

    Well done, dark, creepy but with hope and love struggling in the midst of all the coming horror. Fast paced book that's really fun to read and draws you right in with the characters, "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abs007 | 8/7/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. An interesting tale intriguingly told creating a spooky atmosphere. The set piece horror scenes are expertly described. I didn't mind the rather low key ending as I knew this was but the first instalment of a trilogy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannette | 7/18/2011

    " As intriguing and mind-turning as Jonathan Maberry's books usually are, I had a very hard time getting through this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Travis | 6/21/2011

    " Took awhile to really get me hooked. Slow plot line development and think the ending could have been far better. Not sure if there is a contiuation to the book or not, it is not mentioned at the ened of the book. The ending kind of leaves it open for more, but again nothing specified. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 5/21/2011

    " this book was AWESOME! Started the second one immediately. Very reminiscent of Stephen King's epic books. "
