A backwater prostitute strangled half to death and buried alive. Children scampering into the woods to play–and never return. Women raped and murdered, men strung up and butchered in place–all for sport. Corpses buried and corpses dug up, and bodies found...with parts missing. Welcome home, Patricia... But it's more than home that awaits Patricia when she returns to the quiet backwoods town where she grew up. Lust-driven frenzy and sultry dreams spark the most erotic obsessions, while something wanton stalks her from the darkest heart of the night. As the bodies pile up and the blood pours, the blackest secrets are revealed. Has the town she calls home really been cursed? No. It's been blessed. By a nameless evil older than sin. Welcome to... THE BACKWOODS!

THE BACKWOODS had been germinating for a while, something I’ve been deliriously motivated to write for a long time. It gave me the opportunity to return to the hunting grounds of an earlier segment of my career, sort of a spatial familiarity. It exists in–how do I say this?–it exists in a comfortable landscape of dread, something that’s always been near and dear to me since the beginning of my career. Call it a return to special societal atmosphere. Rednecks are what I’m talking about. Hillfolk. It’s always been my ultimate fascination as well as my ultimate terror: the backwoods. There’s horror in them there hills, damn it, and I’m going to show it to ya. I like to put a new spin on familiar things. In THE BACKWOODS, you’ll meet a new kind of redneck indeed. The rednecks in this book make those two guys in DELIVERANCE look like Laurel and Hardy. I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s erotic, gory, mythical and mystical. And there’re some sexual shenanigans in this book that would make Caligula squeamishFrom the Back Cover:
