What would you do if you knew the Dead could talk?

For Chester Penderghast, it’s not the easiest of questions to answer…

Ensconced in the basement of his family’s mortuary business is the last place he wants to be, but when the conversation starts flowing, Chester’s the only living person who can hear it. What do the Dead want, and why is he the only one who can hear them?

This is not your average zombie tale—the Dead don’t want to eat your brains, but they will chew your ear off!


My Opinion

The book introduces you to its protagonist, Chester, 27, working in his father’s mortuary business. After reading, your perception of the Dead might be quite different.

With The Dead of Penderghast Manor, Julianne Snow has created an enjoyable horror short story. I consider it a hidden gem. The Dead of Penderghast Manor is an entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more by Julianne Snow.

This is a book to read again.
