''Without a doubt this prolific author is the next Stephen King. Maberry deserves more than a Bram Stoker Award for this; he deserves Bram Stoker to rise from his grave and shake his hand.'' --New World Reviews
''A chilling tale--lyrical, melodic, and dark. Maberry breathes new life into modern horror fiction.'' -- Scott Nicholson, bestselling author of The Red Church
''Serves up scares like pancakes at a church social.'' --Gregory Frost, bestselling author of Shadowbridge
''If I were asked to select only one new voice in horror fiction to read today, it would be Jonathan Maberry.'' -- Katherine Ramsland, bestselling author of The Vampire Companion
''If you think small town horror has nothing new to offer, you have a surprise in store. Ghost Road Blues demonstrates that even the most haunted town in America is unprepared for the full depth of evil, either human or inhuman.'' --Don D'Ammassa, author of Blood Beast --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

The readers who took this book to read after finishing all the Joe books, know that Mr. Maberry has improved, immensely.
The story in this book does not end. It is a chapter in a trilogy, with two more chapters to come. For those who like the genre, it's a romp.
I read all three one after and enjoyed the story. The development, build-up and the conclusion. It is not for the faint of heart. Lots of blood and gore, evil people and non-people.
i enjoyed it and then moved on to something totally different.
Waiting for a Joe book, Mr. Maberry.
Also, random references to music was forced. The mayor makes a reference to a jazz drummer in the middle of all the chaos and carnage going on. Doesn't ring true at all. We get it, Maberry. You know your music.
So, I've gone on for awhile here, but, in honor of the author, "in short", this book sucks. Don't read it. It's poorly written, poorly developed and poorly edited.
Good story, but i was expecting more supernatural spooky stuff. It’s definitely in there, don’t get me wrong, but the antagonist of the story is just a human bad guy. Still, it was a fun read and I’m loving the setting. Just picked up the second one and i can’t wait to check it out. Hopefully it starts to involve the supernatural more, just because that was what i was looking for when i picked this book up.
This first book sets up the scene of a quiet little town that comes to life during the Halloween season. The town capitalizes on the local folk lore and ghost stories. Unbeknownst to them, there is true evil buried in their land and it has been waiting 30 years to rise again.
This is not a fast paced, non-stop action story. It’s an atmospheric, evil, paranormal story. Jonathan Maberry has taken his time to create the perfect word pictures needed to build tension, describe the land, and introduce you to the citizens.
Crow is our hero, a man of average height who can beat the crap out of any comer. Val, a tough as nails farmer’s daughter is Crow’s girlfriend. Terry is the mayor, Crow’s best friend. He is cursed, but I don’t think he truly knows how. He sees his dead sister. Tow-truck Eddie thinks he’s doing God’s work. Vic is a mean-nasty man full of the evil that fills the land. Mike, 14 years old, is Vic’s stepson and punching bag. Mike has a vivid imagination, likes to pretend he is a superhero, and is a protégé of Crow’s. Ruger is a thief and murder who crashes into town and gets mixed up in the evil. Not something that is hard for him since he is already consumed by evil. Then, there is The Man and the Bone Man.
This story isn’t for the faint of heart. There are graphic scenes of violence, evil thoughts, and evil deeds. The bad guys know what’s up but our heroes haven’t yet figured it out. Also, there is no conclusion in this book. It is just the first book in a longer story. I’m looking forward to reading the next two. I think I have a couple of things figured out but don’t want to spoil it for you.

Echoes of King and Bradbury for me in this rollicking story which hits the ground running and never lets up. Well written and well-rounded characters, even the bad guys, and the right balance of scares and action.
It's like some old fashioned heavy weight boxing slug fest as well...nobody, good or bad, goes down without a fight and that just adds to the tension.
