James Straley might think his life is cursed, but it doesn’t compare to what lies ahead of him on life’s highway. He’s on the run with the proceeds of a botched bank robbery. It’s all he has. His crew is dead and his getaway car just died on him. He’s on foot with the cash when he comes across a two-car pileup. There’s no saving the drivers, but he can save himself by stealing one of the wrecked cars. Unfortunately, he boosts the wrong set of wheels. Within an hour of driving off, he develops a rash that eats away at his flesh. No doctor can help him—only the car’s original owner. If Straley wants his skin back, he must journey on the road to redemption, which ends in the heart of Central America.

Simon Janus is the horror identity for the award winning thriller writer, Simon Wood.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I grew up watching Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone. I love short stories with a twist and a kick. Alfred said, Give them pleasure – the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare. Road Rash will give you pleasure all the way to the end. Simon can create tension and suspense. You hate Straley and then you feel sorry for him! This is a page turner and would have been a hit on the Alfred Hitchcock Presents. I could not turn off the Kindle until I finished Road Rash…


If you think this is a simple retelling of Stephen King’s “The Lonesome Death Of Jody Verrill”, you’ll have to guess again, Road Rash is much better and the extended ending is not only unexpected, but is way cool. If you enjoyed Wood’s “The Scrubs”, you are going to love “Road Rash”.


… what an amazing twist this tale takes. You never see the direction, Simon Wood is going to take the main character, until the very last second! Another fabulous read by a gifted storyteller!
