THE HUNGRY EARTH Available for Pre-order!

My new novel, The Hungry Earth, coming October 5th, is now available for pre-order! (Note: This is just for the e-book. Paperback pre-orders are coming soon!)

Sakima, New York, a sleepy, idyllic city nestled in the Hudson Valley, a place where everyone knows each other, families look after the highly prized community garden, and the crime rate is so low that Dr. Laura Powell, the police department’s medical examiner, spends most of her time tending to her own private medical practice.

That changes drastically the day a local high school student is found dead, an apparent suicide. Called in to perform the autopsy, Laura uncovers a strange growth inside the body, composed of a mysterious substance she can’t identify. Enlisting the aid of her scientist ex-boyfriend, Booker Coates, Laura launches an investigation that leads to a horrifying discovery.

Something deadly has taken root in Sakima, an organism whose toxic influence spreads like a disease through the population, dangerously altering minds and dominating wills, a ruthless intelligence that demands obedience. As more and more townspeople fall under its control, forming violent mobs to seek out those who remain uninfected, Laura and Booker must find a way to stop it before they become its next victims. But how can they stop something they don’t understand?

With The Hungry Earth, Nicholas Kaufmann, co-author of the bestselling horror novel 100 Fathoms Below with Steven L. Kent, launches a chilling new series of science thrillers featuring Medical Examiner Laura Powell.

I’m very excited about this one! You can pre-order the e-book edition at AmazonBarnes & Noble, Kobo, and Apple Books!

Black Mad Wheel

Black Mad WheelBlack Mad Wheel by Josh Malerman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Josh Malerman has one of the most creative imaginations working in horror fiction today. He proved that with his debut novel, BIRD BOX, and he proves it again with BLACK MAD WHEEL. The concept of a mysterious sound in the Namib desert that can kill you, among other things, is thoroughly original. I found the characters realistic and compelling, Philip and Ellen in particular. As with BIRD BOX, Malerman’s sparse writing style takes some getting used to, but I never felt lost or anything but immersed in the world of the novel. BLACK MAD WHEEL is a page-turner, and Malerman is quickly becoming a new favorite author.

Final Girls

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I liked this one a lot! The prose is smooth and sly, which you don’t always find in thrillers, and the characters are remarkably well drawn, particularly Quincy and Sam. Being a jaded reader, I was able to anticipate some of the twists and revelations, but Riley Sager’s novel won me over regardless. Now I see why so many people raved about it! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a well written, character-driven thriller.
