A young girl is kidnapped off the street by a murderous religious cult. A man wrongly imprisoned in a Mexican jail is chosen to be the "righteous messenger" for an ancient evil entity and sent on a mission across the desert. A small town Texas sheriff and a high class psychologist join forces to take on the cult. Add an outlaw biker gang, a few corrupt federales, a disfigured psychotic henchman, and an undead virgin army. Are you getting the picture?
The first couple of chapters set up the plot and introduce us to the characters. The good guys are likable and funny. The bad guys are beyond evil. The action begins with the kidnapping and the clock is set for 24 hours. What takes place within one day for all these characters will have you on the edge of your seat for every chapter. When time runs out, the fate of the world is at stake. Can a handful of ordinary people defeat a supernatural evil entity? Hmm, I wonder.
If you enjoy fast paced, high energy movies and books, this one should be on your reading list. It's a lot of fun and definitely holds your interest throughout. The author doesn't pull punches with his prose so there is a good deal of profanity and violence. Be forewarned if that kind of thing offends you. The only aspect that I was just a little disappointed with was the ending. It kind of leaves you hanging without there being mention of a sequel. If so, I definitely want to read it.
I haven't read any other works by Adam Mansbach but this book certainly makes we want to check out what else he's done. I can see this book being made into a killer action movie. Are you out there Quentin Tarantino?
Ordinarily when I don’t finish a book, I don’t review it. Because I selected “The Dead Run” as a VINE book to read and review, I’ll just say a few words about it to stay in good graces.
It’s not my type of book. I’m not much for supernatural happenings and characters who are not real. Too much of that here for me to stomach. Women coming out of the desert sand to kill, hot tubs filled with virgins’ blood, a scratchy voiced ghost with vile intentions, mystical relationships, callous murders; none of these outlandish ideas are of any interest to me.
I hate to disrespect a noted author because I can see that he has a loyal following. And, the writing is good. But I leave it to others with more affinity for this type of novel to extend their admiration.

Returning home from a lousy day at the community swimming pool, Sherry Richards is kidnapped and becomes another statistic in a growing succession of sixteen year-old females who have disappeared. Her mother, recently rehabilitated from a powerful cult, calls the police.
Sheriff Bob Nichols, of the woefully understaffed Del Verde County office, believes Sherry is just another runaway until the mother's psychiatrist, Ruth Cantwell, contacts him. She supports the mother's fears and convinces Nichols to jump into her bright red Prius and pay a visit to the cult compound.
The Dead Run, a story that involves a freakish cult, ancient legends, supernatural beings, patriotic bikers, a still beating heart in a box, and a dangerous trek through the desert inhabited by the Virgin Army of zombie girls, is unquestionably bizarre. The writing is hip, gritty, violent, and fast-paced with some laugh out loud moments. The fact that the writer is also the author of the hysterical "children's" book, Go the (BEEP) to Sleep, makes the dark humor of this outlandish story even more wicked.
Now, any horror story that includes the supernatural is going to be a stretch of the imagination. The Dead Run, however, requires an elastic contortion of the reader's imagination; sometimes asking much patience and indulgence on the reader's part.Read more ›
