I have been fan of Stephen Randel's writing ever since I read his dark comedy/thriller, The Chupacabra. Recently, I had the opportunity to read and promote the sequel, Trail of the Chupacabra. It was such a wonderful read, and I know any readers who love action-packed stories that include comedy will happily devour this series.
If you missed my review of Trail of the Chupacabra, you can read it right here.
Now, if my review isn't enough to get you excited about the book, the fact that Stephen Randel is currently offering it FREE on Amazon for the next 24 hours should do the trick.
Do yourself a favor & check this book out! Right this way .... AMAZON.
Trail of the Chupacabra
By Stephen Randel
Publisher: Knuckleball Press
Publication Date: May 2nd, 2013
Genre: Humor/Dark Comedy/Thriller
Avery Bartholomew Pendleton is back, and he’s just as crazy as ever. Avery is a paranoid loner obsessed with global conspiracy theories who spends most of his time crafting absurd and threatening letters to anyone who offends him. That means pretty much everyone.
Still convinced of the existence of the mythical Mexican chupacabra*, Avery enlists the assistance of the Southwest Texas Revolutionary Armed Confederate Border Operations Militia (STRAC-BOM) and their manic leader, General X-Ray, to help him invade Mexico. Accompanied by Ziggy, a burned-out hippy, and an uncommonly large iguana named Nancy, the group follows the advice of a New Orleans voodoo priestess and heads straight into the Mexican desert.
Unfortunately for the motley gang of explorers, Mexico can be a dangerous place if you cross the wrong people -- specifically, the Padre, a vicious drug cartel boss, and El Barquero, a murderous gunrunner who has crossed Avery’s path before.
What unfolds is a laugh-out-loud dark comedy of insane humor, unforgettable characters, and chilling thrills.
*No chupacabras were injured in the writing of this book.
