Robert Weinberg Presents
Desper Hollow Audiobook
by Elizabeth Massie
Read by Nick Santa Maria
It begins when hardheaded mountain matriarch Granny Mustard decides she wants to live forever, but is killed before she can achieve her goal. Her slow-witted but equally hardheaded granddaughter Jenkie decides to pick up the ball and run with it. She takes Granny's unperfected immortality moonshine recipe, a socially-inept friend named Bink, and her wild dreams of fame and fortune to an abandoned trailer up in Desper Hollow.
But slow-witted doesn't stand a chance against the terrible power that Granny unleashed. Jenkie's experiments worsen the troubles with Granny's original recipe. Now, it brings dead critters and a few stray dead folks back to a state of hungry, vicious, mindless animation. Soon, a stash of the living dead is locked up in the back of the Jenkie's trailer, emitting a howling heard that has herd that has Jenkie terrified. And Armistead, one of the red-eyed living dead, seems way too alert for comfort.
Mountain resident Kathy Shaw and Hollywood pitchman Jack Carroll, who is looking for the next hit reality show, find themselves caught up in the growing horror surrounding Desper Hollow. They can't avoid it and must face it head on. So must Armistead, who fights the fog of his ghastly condition to discover the truth of who he really is.
