Summary

Welcome to the cool side of the 1950s, where the fast cars and revved-up movie monsters peel out in the night. Where outlaw vixens and jukebox tramps square off with razorblades and lead pipes. Where rockers rock, cool cats strut, and hot rods roar. Where you howl to the moon as the tiki drums pound and the electric guitar shrieks and that spit-and-holler jamboree ain’t gonna stop for a long, long time . . . maybe never. 
This is the ’50s where ghost shows still travel the back roads of the south, and rockabilly has a hold on the nation’s youth; where lucky hearts tell the tale, and maybe that fella in the Shriners’ fez ain’t so square after all. Where exist noir detectives of the supernatural, tattoo artists of another kind, Hollywood fix-it men, and a punk kid with grasshopper arms under his chain-studded jacket and an icy stare on his face. 
This is the ’50s of Pop the Clutch: Thrilling Tales of Rockabilly, Monsters, and Hot Rod Horror. This is your ticket to the dark side of American kitsch . . . the fun and frightful side!

    For most of Kansas City, it was a beautiful spring day.  For Eric Clachan, it was the day he would get justice through bloodshed.  A rifle would ensure that the spree killer would never destroy another family.  He wouldn’t stop there.  Eric had a list of other targets inside the prison walls.  Targets that would ensure justice would change.  A single day would change the world and pave the way for the US Marshals to become the baddest serial killer hunters in the world.  Eric knew this as he looked down the scope and took aim.   
    Max Goff needed to relax.  His life had become overwhelming.  He should have gotten a massage and spent a day with friends.  Instead, he stole a car and began a killing spree that would terrorize an entire city.  Until the newly formed US Marshals’ Serial Crimes Tracking Unit would come hunting for him and he would learn what fear really was.

    At the peak of his career, Abraham "Bram" Stoker (November 8, 1847 – April 20, 1912) was working as an assistant for his friend, Shakespearean actor Sir Henry Irving, a well known and acclaimed actor in his day. But it would be the assistant whose name would outshine the boss’s. 
     
    Stoker, an Irish novelist and short story writer, is known around the globe for his Gothic horror character Dracula. Inspired in part by his friend Irving, as well as the notorious Vlad the Impaler, Stoker studied stories about vampires, but ultimately his Count Dracula would become synonymous with the famous monsters. And drawing off his experience as a newspaper writer, Stoker wrote Dracula as a collection of realistic diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship's logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which made the story that much scarier and unique.

    Dr. Jonas Allen has been with the Center for Disease Control almost sixteen years. For most of his career, he’s been “in the trenches.” In 1997, he was in Zaire, investigating a monkey pox outbreak. He assisted investigators at the World Health Organization during the Uganda Ebola outbreak of 2000. He has studied West Nile, SARS, and H1N1, and he was even on-site after the Haitian earthquake of 2010.
    
    Jonas has been a firsthand witness to countless medical emergencies, any one of which could have spelled disaster for humanity. Each time, mankind dodged the fatal bullet—until now. Nothing could have prepared Jonas and his team for the nightmare that is about to unfold.
    
    People start exhibiting symptoms of violent psychosis. They cannot escape madness, and neither can the people around them. Deep within the infected minds of these victims, two organisms struggle to survive, and Jonas must race against time to identify the culprits and stop a rage pandemic. Atlanta is under siege. The CDC has become a refuge and possibly humanity’s last hope for survival. However, the solution to the pandemic may be more terrifying than the disease itself.
