Review quote

Fantastically clever. A breakneck ride to save a life already lost, proving sometimes death is only the beginning - J.D. Barker, bestselling author of The Fourth Monkey

Breathtaking and menacing . . . an intricately plotted, lyrical page-turner about love, betrayal, revenge, and the primal fear of being buried alive - Booklist

Unbury Carol is a Poe story set in the weird West we all carry inside us, and it not only hits the ground running, it digs into that ground, too. About six wonderful feet - Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrel

Bleakly lyrical a la Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O'Connor - Library Journal

With vivid prose and characters that leap off the page, guns a-blazing, Unbury Carol creates its own lingering legend, dragging you along like an obstinate horse toward a righteous storm of an ending - Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma
