A thrilling dark tale where a good man is forced to run with a bad crowd that includes soul-destroying nearly immortal Aztec priests, corrupt Federales, violent prisoners, and undead Virgins bent on his destruction if he makes one false step. Galvan makes his run for the border with a beating heart in a box razor wired to his body, and a determination to save as many people as he can despite the forces of darkness arrayed against him.

"Author Adam Mansbach may be best known for writing a humorous picture book for adults satirising the bedtime habits of small children and their unhappy, exhausted parents, but he's back to his roots with this gripping blend of horror and suspense. Set on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, The Dead Run follows two people - one escaping from her torturers and one coerced into delivering a creepy relic to a cult leader - as they try to make it through the desert alive. In addition to religious fanatics, outlaw bikers, and corrupt cops, there might be an undead virgin or two; this fast-paced, violent, profanity-laden tale won't be for everyone."
