Publisher's Summary

A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.
Can Sanjay discover the truth behind the phenomena threatening his motel before the Feds get suspicious, or does he risk exposing his own sordid enterprises to seek help from the outside?
Why don't you book a room for the night and find out? At these bargain rates you'll be lucky if you only find dirty sheets and a few skeletons in the closet. Welcome to the Shady Palms Motel. Check out is at 11, if you live that long...

Sci-fi meets pornography

Imagine irradiated bedbugs morphing into man-eating monsters. Then imagine that a motel hosts a pornographic on-line service. Then think about women who are on work-release from prison cleaning rooms in said motel. That's all folks. This is the worst book I have ever listened to.

What a fun ride!

If you could sum up Shady Palms in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Fast-Paced, and Gory

What other book might you compare Shady Palms to and why?

I can't think of a book that I've read that is like this. I'd say this a little like those classic creature feature movies. Except waayyyy more hardcore and gory.

Which character – as performed by Rose Caraway – was your favorite?

OH that's easy, Sanjay! What interesting character, I'd love another book with this guy. You can't help but love him even though you're supposed hate him.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't want to give it away, but the scene with the mom was very cringe-worthy. That really got me uptight, which is exactly what you're looking for in a book like this.

Any additional comments?

Rose introduced me to Allen Dusk on her podcast and I've loved everything he's done to this point. She's got a knack for finding these underground talents and introducing them to us. Great job Allen and Rose!
