Genre: Horror

 My teaser from page 73 in the paperback.

Why do we do graveside services? We just got out of the funeral literally fifteen minutes ago; we’ve said all the same things, spouted all the same trite homilies, invoked all the same blessings of all the same deities……We’re human beings – we need ceremony…..Just like I like to brush a dead body’s hair, trim its nails, and prepare it for the end, other people like to stand by the grave and bid the body farewell.

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells continues his acclaimed John Wayne Cleaver series, popular with fans of Dexter

Hi. My name is John Cleaver, and I hunt monsters. I used to do it alone, and then for a while I did it with a team of government specialists, and then the monsters found us and killed almost everyone, and now I hunt them alone again.

This is my story.

In this thrilling installment in the John Wayne Cleaver series, Dan Wells brings his beloved antihero into a final confrontation with the Withered in a conclusion that is both completely compelling and completely unexpected.

Don’t forget to catch the film adaptation of the first installment in the series, I am Not a Serial Killer, in theaters August 26th.

  7. Hi Laura,

    I’m not altogether sure that this series is for me, although I did check out all the premises and have decided to maybe read the very first book and see how I go from there. I certainly enjoyed those teaser lines you shared and certainly agree 100% with the narrator’s views on graveside services!

    Thanks for sharing and ‘Happy Reading’ :)

      I did things different and watched the movie for the first book and then listened to it. Got me hooked!

  8. I’m not really into horror but I do like that teaser very much indeed – maybe I need to reassess.
