On both sides of the Mexican-American border, girls are going missing and bodies are beginning to surface, a deadly epidemic of crime that plunges a small-town police chief into a monster of an investigation he's unequipped to handle. Sherry Nichols is one of those disappeared girls. Miraculously, she's managed to escape. As the young woman soon discovers, freeing herself was the easy part. Lost and alone, she's got to make it through the desert. Alive. In a Mexican jail, an injustly-imprisoned man named Galvan is offered a devil's bargain. Freedom and the beloved daughter from whom he is estranged if he successfully carries a sinister package across the border in twenty-four hours. But there are more than coyotes (human and animal) roaming the desert in search of prey. An ancient evil has returned, and now everyone must face their deepest terrors. With The Dead Run Adam Mansbach delivers an eerie high-concept thriller, mixing horror, the supernatural, and suspense in a chilling, high-octane read.
