14. Ghost Road Blues, by Jonathan Maberry (2006)
It’s enough to make us want to stay out of the historically witchy, and similarly storied, Salem, Massachusetts, forever. In Jonathan Maberry’s action-packed, supernatural freakout Ghost Road Blues, the setting of Pine Deep has become a tourist trap thanks to an old serial killer, called the Reaper, whose legacy attracts thrill-seekers like pigs to feces. And, in a rather clever plot turn, Maberry lets swarms of visitors enter Pine Deep before he unleashes a gang of malicious spirits to finish the Reaper’s handiwork. Let’s just say, they’re not exactly operating cameras while out-of-towners pose for flicks.
