Short Take: The Dead Run – Adam Mansbach

Do you like your zombie novels with a Mexican Border flavor? Maybe spiced with some Tarantino-like wit and mayhem? This Indie Next Pick mixes horror, action, the supernatural, and suspense into a genre-bending roller coaster.

“An exciting tale, an action thriller heavily infused with paranormal elements … The narrative twists among several disparate protagonists and keeps a lot of balls in the air without losing momentum. Highly recommended for readers of supernatural action and horror … and fans of more general action stories.”
— Library Journal (highly recommended)

“[A]n American man, stuck in a Mexican prison, is coerced into taking the beating heart—yes, the living, beating heart—of a young girl across the border, where he is to deliver it to a seriously dangerous man. … The book has a startlingly compelling villain… Both surreal and grounded in harsh reality, the novel is ambitiously plotted and powerfully written.”
