Look Out For … Bad Man by Dathan Auerbach

Bad Man by Dathan Auerbach - cover“Stripped right out of the headlines, and our collective fears, Auerbach’s Bad Man promises to make Ben’s hunt for his missing brother a one-way ticket to the bowels of hell.”

You’ve got about a 48 hour window to find a missing person. For Ben, those 48 hours were the worst. He looked away for one split second and poof, his three year old brother Eric was gone. That was five years ago, and Ben has never stopping looking for Eric.

His family in ruins, his mother on the verge of total madness, and his father about to lose the house, Ben takes a job, completely broke and desperate.

The job is at the same store where Eric disappeared. Ben can tell something’s not right there. The people, even his boss, just seem strange. He can feel it in the air. The secret is there, and he’s going to find it. But there’s another message, one that Ben doesn’t grasp until it’s too late.

Maybe he should have just stopped looking for Eric.

Why we’re excited about this book:

Stripped right out of the headlines, and our collective fears, Auerbach’s Bad Man promises to make Ben’s hunt for his missing brother a one-way ticket to the bowels of hell. Nick Cutter (The Troop, Little Heaven) says: “Bad Man blew a big dark hole right through my chest. Spellbindingly terrifying stuff. Dathan Auerbach writes high-test, 151-proof horror.” Auerbach’s previous book, Penpal, began when he started posting the story on Reddit, and after a very successful Kickstarter campaign, he revised and released the book to critical acclaim. Bad Man, published by Doubleday, releases 7 August 2018, and is available for pre-order.
