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 The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country's largest Halloween celebration in what is now called "The Spookiest Town in America."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. And an ancient evil walking 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.

I really enjoyed Maberry's Joe Ledger series so I decided to pick up Pine Deep. It didn't disappoint. I enjoy Maberry's writing style and the way he intersperses humor throughout. For example, the main character Crow is in the hospital after a tense and horrific battle with the baddie and we get the following dialogue that made me snort laugh.
"So what did I get shot with a kryptonite bullet?"
"According to Detective Sargent Ferro you must have"
"Great, when the nurse comes in I'll check out her bod with my x-ray vision"
"Go ahead, she looks like Steve Buscemi"

I'm looking forward to the other two books in the trilogy to find out what happens next.
