Review:

“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)

“Both surreal and grounded in harsh reality, the novel is ambitiously plotted and powerfully written.” (Booklist)

“Irreverent and entertaining. It’s a wild high-speed ride.” (Shelf Awareness)

“A taut and gritty adventure thriller with a supernatural element.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Although violent, The Dead Run is first-rate entertainment based on a fascinating cultural mashup.” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

Praise for Adam Mansbach:“Mansbach has a talent for writing full, memorable characters that seem untidy and complex. The prose crackles with insight.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Total genius.” (Jonathan Lethem)

“Beautiful, funny, heartbreaking . . .Very few writers could have attempted all this. Adam Mansbach succeeds, brilliantly.” (Boston Globe)

“One of the most ambitious, insightful, and daring writers of our generation.” (Jeff Chang)

“Exquisite. Mansbach’s characters are sharply drawn.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation quite like this.” (New Yorker)

“One of the best thriller/horror hybrids to come along this year. ... a lean, intoxicating funhouse of a book that is difficult to put down.” (Fearnet.com)

From the Back Cover:

Adam Mansbach, the acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author of Go the F**k to Sleep, delivers an electrifying and horrifying action-adventure

Wrongfully imprisoned in a Mexican jail, outlaw-with-a-conscience Jess Galvan accepts a devil's bargain: transport a sinister package across the border for the jail's mythical—and terrifying—bogeyman El Cucuy. If Jess can survive and deliver the iron box in twenty-four hours, he will be free.

But as Jess navigates the deadly desert, girls go missing and bodies begin to surface—an epidemic of crime that plunges small-town sheriff Bob Nichols into a monstrous investigation. For an ancient evil has awoken in the wastelands and quickly epic myth and human malice threaten the end of the world.
