Helltown - Since the 1980s there have been numerous reports of occult activity and other possibly supernatural phenomenon within certain villages and townships of Summit County, Ohio - an area collectively known as Helltown. When a group of out-out-town friends investigating the legends are driven off the road by a mysterious hearse, their night of cheap thrills turns to chills as they begin to die one by one. Island of the Dolls - Deep within an ancient Aztec canal system on the outskirts of Mexico City lies Isla de las Munecas...a reportedly haunted island infested with thousands of decrepit dolls. While there to film a television documentary, several friends discover a brutal murder. Soon fear and paranoia turn them against one another - even as the unknown killer stalks them throughout the longest night of their lives.

Reviews

Praise for Jeremy Bates and his books: "Bates' approach to the story is surprisingly restrained, cultivating impressive frights in the unnerving environment...an understated horror story that will remind readers what chattering teeth sound like." -- Kirkus Reviews on Suicide Forest "Bates takes an intriguing premise to shocking lengths, revealing the outcome only in an epilogue. A graphically violent story with building suspense and a moral about where weaving such a web may lead." -- Booklist on White Lies "The Catacombs is easy to consume whole, like a shocking, but delicious, pint of ice cream, as Bates never shies away from the bad or the ugly. If you are looking for something to give you chills before you go to bed or make you think twice about turning off your light, then The Catacombs is the book for you." -- San Francisco Book Review on The Catacombs "[A] short, sharp shocker...Bates (The Taste of Fear) writes persuasively from [the protagonist's] adolescent point of view, making the horror of his youthful reminiscences that much more intense." -- Publishers Weekly on Black Canyon "The story culminates in a tense situation and a surprising yet satisfying ending...well written and an exciting thriller." -- Suspense Magazine on White Lies "Big on suspense...think of The Blair Witch Project with the exception being that this takes place in...a real haunted setting." -- HorrorAddicts on Suicide Forest "Here's an enjoyable book to lose yourself in. Jeremy Bates doesn't miss a trick, teasing and misleading, ratcheting up the tension as the heroine...loses traction on a slippery slope of deceptions." -- Glenn Kleier, New York Times bestselling author on White Lies "A horror story like none other...makes for a read that will delight horror fans who want their novels steeped in psychological suspense as well as action." -- Midwest Book Review on The Catacombs What people are saying about the books in the WORLD'S SCARIEST PLACES series (Suicide Forest, The Catacombs, Helltown, Island of the Dolls): "Definitely gave me chills reading this late at night which hasn't happened since I was a 13 year old teenager reading Stephen King's, It, for the first time." - verothehero "Move over King and Koontz there's a new talent in town." - judy pfanner "I had to stop reading at certain points because he was freaking me out. That only happens to me with one other writer--Stephen King." - Lyn Lutrzykowski "I think of early Clive Barker, without the guts." - H. Kelly "Suicide Forest is up the with Joe Hills Heart Shaped Box." - Lola Cain "Scariest book I've ever read" - Jamie Dobbs "If you like Greg Olsen or Jeffrey Deaver, Jeremy Bates is a great new talent." - Lnh "I found it rivaling some of Stephen King's and Dean Koontz's early works---high praise indeed." - Diana D "If you enjoy Richard Layman, you'll love reading Jeremy Bates" - Anna W. "This author is in the same league as King, Simmons, and Craven" - linda22724
