Looking for evil is one thing. Finding is another. When Patricia White re-visits her backwoods home, an atrocious secret from her past isn’t the only thing that begins to haunt her. Creepy, erotic, and relentless, THE BACKWOODS delivers up a new kind of horror in a foreboding terrain of reclusive hillfolk, demented murder mysteries, and soul-searing horror. Has the town Patricia calls home really been cursed? No, it’s been blessed. By an unspeakable evil older than sin.

THE BACKWOODS had been germinating for a while, something I’ve been deliriously motivated to write for a long time. It gave me the opportunity to return to the hunting grounds of an earlier segment of my career, sort of a spatial familiarity. It exists in–how do I say this?–it exists in a comfortable landscape of dread, something that’s always been near and dear to me since the beginning of my career. Call it a return to special societal atmosphere. Rednecks are what I’m talking about. Hillfolk. It’s always been my ultimate fascination as well as my ultimate terror: the backwoods. There’s horror in them there hills, damn it, and I’m going to show it to ya. I like to put a new spin on familiar things. In THE BACKWOODS, you’ll meet a new kind of redneck indeed. The rednecks in this book make those two guys in DELIVERANCE look like Laurel and Hardy. I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s erotic, gory, mythical and mystical. And there’re some sexual shenanigans in this book that would make Caligula squeamishFrom the Back Cover:
More than memories await Patricia when she returns to the quiet backwoods town where she grew up. A woman strangled half to death and buried alive. Children who scampered off to play, never to return. Men and women strung up and butchered for sport. Corpses dug up and bodies found–with parts missing. All this greets Patricia. All this and more...
Something from the darkest heart of the night is stalking her, while the town itself seems to be cursed by a nameless evil. Lust-filled dreams fuel deadly obsessions, the bodies pile up and the blood flows. Black secrets are revealed and nightmares live...in the Backwoods.
