Product Description

Product Description

Before the events of Blake Crouch’s horror novels DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS...

Before the events of Jack Kilborn's and Blake Crouch's #1 Amazon Kindle bestseller SERIAL...

The year is 1995, and a young girl with psychopathic tendencies named Lucy (the sweetheart from SERIAL) has run away from home to a mystery convention to see her favorite author in the world: Andrew Z. Thomas.

But Lucy has problems, and not just the psychopathic kind…to start with, the hotel won’t rent a room to a 15-year-old girl. So she does a bad, bad thing, which only gets worse when a couple of horrifying killers, Orson Thomas, and his protégé, Luther Kite, catch her trying to cover up a nasty mess.

BAD GIRL is a thriller novella that brings all of Crouch’s most terrifying villains to the same hotel.

A prequel to SERIAL, which has been downloaded more than 200,000 times, BAD GIRL is not for the faint of heart. Let the reader beware.

BAD GIRL also contains a bonus interview with Blake, plus excerpts from all four of his novels.

*Note: BAD GIRL is fully contained in SERIAL UNCUT. BAD GIRL + TRUCK STOP + SERIAL = SERIAL UNCUT.

About the Author:

BLAKE CROUCH was born near the piedmont town of Statesville, North Carolina in 1978. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 2000 with degrees in English and Creative Writing. Blake is the author of four novels and numerous short stories. He lives with his family in southwest Colorado, where he is at work on a new book.

Praise for Blake Crouch’s ABANDON:

ABANDON would make an excellent movie, switching back and forth between the plain-but-sturdy homes, saloon and church in 1893 and the same structures rotting to dust in 2009...a clever dual story.
CHARLOTTE OBSERVER

ABANDON [is] two separate works of past and present seamlessly melded together into a single novel that demands to be read in one sitting, so you can better appreciate the beauty of Crouch’s storytelling…[O]ne of those books that almost instantly puts you in the mind of a classic.
BOOKREPORTER

Haunting, fast-paced, and thoroughly engrossing... ABANDON is one of the most original tales of ghosts, greed and gold I've come across. Crouch aligns both eras so perfectly, it's as if the characters are occupying the same breath within the space/time continuum. ABANDON will be one of the most talked-about books of the summer.
THE MADISON COUNTY HERALD

Ambitious…the palpable suspense just keeps building, and many thriller fans—especially those who like a touch of horror—will lose sleep to find out how it all ends.
BOOKLIST

ABANDON is terrific…a great storyteller hitting his stride.
LEE CHILD

More About the Author

Blake Crouch was born near the piedmont town of Statesville, North Carolina in 1978. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2000 with degrees in English and Creative Writing.

2004 and 2005 saw the publications of his first two novels, DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS.

Beginning in late 2005, and inspired by his relocation to Durango, Colorado, he researched and wrote a book set in the past and present in a remote mining town high in the San Juan Mountains. The resulting novel, ABANDON, was published by St. Martin's Press in 2009.

His next novel, SNOWBOUND, is forthcoming in June 2010.

Blake lives with his family in southwest Colorado, where he is at work on a new book.

As with the previous novello, APerfect Little Town, be careful as all this author's books interlink causing duplication and wasting money.

5.0 out of 5 stars great story, wanted to know more though 9 July 2012
By becky81
Format:Kindle Edition
I agree with the review above, I was disappointed the story was so short, but I know many of the books by the same author/s are short stories, but as they are so well written i keep buying them! definitely wanted to know more, bought the other books with lucy in but i liked the story with the hotel setting so would have liked it to be longer. Perhaps they could re-write a special book for fans that made this into a full lenght book?? wishful thinking! this is the first book i "met" luther Kite, (although i went back and read his history from the start, kind of read these books in the wrong order)and he has become my favourite character in all these stories. About to read Stirred...and hoping Luther survies!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 14 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm glad this wasn't the first Blake Crouch book I have read, as I found it very disappointing - it was too short, you were just getting to like the character, glanced down to see how far into the book you were, 46%, turned the page to find an interview with the author. I will read Serial though, as the character was getting interesting, it is very unusual to read of such a young female killer.
