Mountain Madness is a 2-in-1 compilation that includes one full-length novel, Dismember, and one long novella, Freeze.

DISMEMBER

The summer he turned seven, Dave Abbott survived a gruesome mountainside car accident that left the rest of his family mangled and dead.

Now, after living twenty-three years with the twisted backwoodsman who pulled him from the wreckage, Dave is carrying out a plan to replace each of his lost loved ones with members of nearby, unsuspecting families. He has prepared, he’s stalked, and now his chance has come to get his family safely out of the mountains once and for all.

Whether they like it or not.

FREEZE

A raging snowstorm has stranded Tess and Warren in their mountain home with no power and little heat. When an accident leaves Tess coughing up pools of blood, Warren has no choice but to brave the storm in search for help.

He’s afraid he’ll be too late.

But what he should be afraid of are the creatures slinking through the blizzard and watching his every move.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“Dismember’s a fast-paced grindhouse-movie of a book with plenty of unexpected twists and turns and a fresh new crazy for a villain. The late Richard Laymon would have been grinning ear to ear.”
—Jack Ketchum, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Girl Next Door and The Woman

“The tourniquet-tight plot and constant suspense keeps the pages flying. A solid, suspenseful thriller that enables readers to envision the movie it could become.”
—Publishers Weekly

The story was more solid than a lot of horror books I’ve read, where along the way you find plot holes or want things to move along. In this books case, you can’t put it down because there are no breaks for the reader. Then as the story goes on and gets darker he punches you in the stomach, like all the bests do: King, Little, etc., and never lets up, you can’t breathe it gets so intense. It is hands down one of the best books I’ve ever read.

I read absolutely nothing about the story on “Freeze” so I had no idea what to expect. I figured if he wrote it I’d give it a chance. Well it packed a whole lot of scare in for a 37,000 word book. The creep started at the get-go. “Freeze” just showed his skills in the other arenas of horror
