Publisher's Summary

A stranger has kidnapped her daughter, Veda. But he doesn't want Sue's money, only her suffering -- and he will kill Veda if Sue doesn't follow his every command. With detailed instructions, the faceless abductor leads Sue into a blinding snowstorm on the longest night of the year, to a place she has not traveled to since childhood. The voice on the other end of the line somehow knows Sue's deepest, most chilling secret, an ominous incident from her past, buried long ago. Across the loneliest back roads of Massachusetts, in the black expanse of a New England winter, Sue is forced to confront her most awful fears. She is met at each step by ever-increasing horrors created by a monster who is surely something less than human. In the hope of saving her daughter from a kidnapper whose origin seems darker than anything she could ever have imagined, Sue will discover just how much trauma and fright the human body is capable of absorbing.
Set over the course of a single night, Chasing the Dead is a fast-paced, ferociously tense supernatural thriller. With skill reminiscent of masters like Dean Koontz and David Morrell, Joe Schreiber has created a tableau of shock and horror, death and destruction, that will draw you in and never let you go.

Critic Reviews

"With its rural New England setting, this horror-fest pays respectful, clever homage to Stephen King's backyard." (Publishers Weekly)

Good, Fast-Paced Story

After reading classics and non-fiction for a few months, I was dying for a good horror story and this did not disappoint. The plot line develops very quickly, has many twists and turns along the way, and the ending is a satisfying one. My only complaint is with the reader, her voice just seemed to weak for the strong female lead character and was distracting at times.

Great Book

I loved this. I bought this on a whim and do not regret it. It is fast paced and keeps you guessing. The anticipation of finding out who and why and what is almost too much. It is a great book. Do get it!
