    The most frightening movie ever made is now a novel! 
    "True Horror Classic" - Newsweek. 
    John A. Russo's novel adaptation of "Night of the Living Dead" closely follows the storyline of the iconic 1968 horror film of the same name, which he co-wrote with George A. Romero. The novel serves as a faithful literary retelling of this classic cinematic masterpiece. 
    Set in rural Pennsylvania, the story begins with a mysterious event that reanimates the dead, causing them to rise from their graves and hunger for the flesh of the living. A disparate group of survivors seeks refuge in an isolated farmhouse, where they face a relentless onslaught of the reanimated corpses. As the night unfolds, tensions rise among the group, which includes the strong-willed Ben, the young and frightened Barbra, the Coopers, and others. They must work together to secure the house and protect themselves from the flesh-eating ghouls outside. 
    Russo's adaptation delves deeper into the thoughts and emotions of the characters, providing additional insights and backgrounds that were not as pronounced in the film. The novel captures the claustrophobic atmosphere, the panic, and the unrelenting terror that made the film a classic of the horror genre. It also explores the underlying social commentary, as the survivors' dynamics mirror the societal issues of the time. 
    "Night of the Living Dead" by John A. Russo is a gripping and faithful adaptation of the original movie, offering fans of the film and horror enthusiasts an opportunity to experience the story in a new and immersive way, with additional details and character development.

    Skyrocketing boat sales have made the waters of South Florida increasingly dangerous by turning quiet backwater coves into venues for huge sandbar parties—and not everyone is there for a good time. Along with the fun-seeking crowds comes the worst elements of Miami society. When a boat is found adrift in the national park with the body of a DEA agent aboard, Special Agent Kurt Hunter is caught in the crossfire between the city’s seedy underbelly and the natural habitat he’s sworn to protect. 
    To solve the murder, Kurt must investigate the in-crowd, only to find the case leads him deep into the sometimes dark history of the park’s out-islands. To make matters worse, he’s once again forced to navigate the political maze of the warring agencies involved.
