From the powerful imagination of a new horror master comes a bone-chilling tale set in a small town where good and evil are joined in a terrifying, deadly battle... Evil Endures Once an idyllic Pennsylvania village, Pine Deep awoke one morning to find itself bathed in a massive bloodletting. Twice in thirty years the townsfolk have endured the savage hungers of a murderous madman...but if the residents think the death of serial killer Karl Ruger put an end to the carnage, they're dead wrong. The Nightmare Never Ends Bodies mutilated beyond description, innocents driven to acts of vicious madness. A monstrous evil is preying on the living--and the dead--and turning the quiet little town into hell on earth. Their only hope is to find the source. But the secrets that lurk in the heart of Pine Deep are twisted into its very roots. This time the townspeople aren't just fighting for their lives, but for their very souls...

Did I ever say how much I hate series books? The ending here was even worse, suspense-wise, than the first volume; you actually could have quit after Ghost Road Blues but here the cliffhanger is so unresolved that there is no way you cannot read the next book in the Pine Deep series, Bad Moon Rising...
I read Maberry's first book, "Ghost Road Blues" last year and enjoyed it thoroughly. I was only disappointed that the second book had not yet been published. "Dead Man's Song" is the second book (in what I am guessing will be a trilogy) and it does not disappoint, in fact, it is even better than the...
Before we view into my thoughts on Dead Man's Song I would like to say a few words about Jonathan Maberry. If you read the notes within the book Maberry is akin to or better than King, and I would warmly agree with this. What Stephen King is able to do so successfully is create small town America an...
