In this chilling sequel
to The Dead Run, New York Times bestselling author
Adam Mansbach mixes horror, the supernatural, and gritty suspense to deliver a
high-octane, high-concept adventure filled with nasty bad guys, fearsome magic,
and an unlikely hero caught in the dangerous terrain of the Tex-Mex borderland.
Locked in a Mexican jail
for a crime he didn’t commit, Jess Galvan made a devil’s bargain to escape and
make it back home. Now, he’s trapped in his own personal hell, his mind and
body inhabited by the soul of Cucuy, a fearsome, five-hundred-year-old Aztec
priest and major crime kingpin determined to bring about hell on earth.
Estranged from his daughter, Sherry, and now his own body, Galvan’s every
moment is a battle to keep the evil priest at bay. But there is a silver
lining—his presence has endowed Galvan with superhuman strength and endurance.
Meanwhile, in the bowels
of Ojos Negros prison, Cucuy’s second-in-command, Domingo Valentine, is trying
to run the empire Cucuy left behind when he vanished, but the drug cartels they
once controlled are at war with one another. Desperate for answers, Valentine
springs the imprisoned leader of a deadly biker gang and now they’re on the
hunt for Galvan—who must find a way to exorcise his inner demon and save the
world from annihilation. Download and start listening now!
