Adam Mansbach, the acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author of Go the F**k to Sleep and Rage
Is Back, turns to a new tale of suspense, horror, and supernatural action
Wrongfully imprisoned in a Mexican jail,
outlaw-with-a-conscience Jess Galvan accepts a devil’s bargain: transport a
sinister package across the border in twenty-four hours for the jail’s
mythical—and terrifying—bogeyman El Cucuy. If Jess can make it across alive and
give the iron box to cult leader Aaron Seth, he will be free and able to regain
custody of his estranged daughter.
But as Jess navigates a blighted desert full of deadly
surprises, girls go missing on both sides of the border and bodies begin to
surface. It’s a deadly epidemic of crime that plunges small-town sheriff Bob
Nichols into a monster of an investigation he’s not equipped to handle,
especially when sixteen-year-old Sherry disappears.
An ancient evil has awoken in the empty wastelands along the
border and now everyone—the innocent and the guilty alike—must face their
deepest fears as epic myth and human malice combine to bring forth the end of
the world as we know it.
With The Dead Run,
acclaimed author Adam Mansbach mixes horror, the supernatural, and suspense to
deliver a chilling, high-octane adventure. Download and start listening now!
