Celebrate Halloween with Black Death

The fourteenth terrifying DEAD MAN tale, THE BLACK DEATH by Aric Davis, is now available, just in time for Halloween. Davis is the author of the innovative, widely-acclaimed horror novel, A GOOD AND USEFUL HURT. 

In THE BLACK DEATH, Matt Cahill is stranded in small, Indiana town in the grip of a horrible plague…not a disease, but a deadly new form of crystal meth that is turning its users into black-eyed, blood-crazed monsters and that could be even more virulently evil than the touch of Mr. Dark. So Matt embarks on a harrowing quest, a journey into darkness and depravity, to find the source of the black death and destroy its makers before the drug, and the homicidal madness it creates, can spread to the entire nation.

The Dark Side of Love and Loyalty

Author Christa Faust shares her experience writing THE DEATH MATCH in a blog post on Amazon's Kindle Daily Post. She says, in part:

One of the things that appealed to me about the Dead Man series was that it wasn't just empty meaningless gore. Sure it's violent, but it also explores the psychological repercussions of that violence, delving into the darker side of love, loyalty, and friendship. With that in mind, I wanted to use my own uniquely female perspective to highlight the complex emotional depth in the character of Matt Cahill without sacrificing the kind of gripping action that the series is also known for. And combining emotion with action has always been at the heart of my own hardboiled crime fiction. It was a perfect fit.
