“Haunting and Poetic”
--David Morrell, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Devil’s Oven is stunning and lyrical and all kinds of creepy. Benedict taps into our childhood’s grimmest fairy tales – the ones that evoked the fear of monsters hiding in closets, murderous shadows lurking under the bed – and takes them in a delightfully spooky new direction. Benedict has graced us with a sophisticated and thoroughly grown-up contemporary nightmare. I won’t sleep easy for days.”
--J.T. Ellison, bestselling author of Where All The Dead Lie
There’s an unknown mountain in Appalachia called Devil’s Oven, a place where extraordinary, dark things have been happening for centuries.
Ivy Luttrell, a lonely seamstress, finds a man’s dismembered body, barely covered by the rich soil of her beloved mountain. Instead of alerting the authorities, Ivy keeps the man for herself, stitching him back together with her own skilled hands. It might have been the beginning to a fairy tale, but when the fearsome power of Devil’s Oven gives the man life, he escapes Ivy’s control and terrorizes Alta, her small mountain town.
Bud Tucker, a local businessman and owner of The Twilight Club, has money problems and a restless, red-headed wife, Lila, who has too much time on her hands. Easygoing Bud has relied too heavily on the advice of his second-in-command, Dwight, a squirrelly guy from up east, and now he’s in the sites of some very unpleasant people. But no one is prepared when one of Bud’s employees is viciously murdered, least of all, Lila, who is quickly drawn into the madness that Ivy has brought down on them all.
Their salvation lies in the hands of a mysterious newcomer, a delicate young stripper named Jolene, whose connection to Devil’s Oven is even deeper and more mysterious than Ivy’s. As the violence grows around them, Jolene is torn between her secret loyalties and her affection for Bud and the other people she’s come to know. Her choice will change life on Devil’s Oven forever.
Part Gothic folk tale, part Frankensteinian nightmare, Devil’s Oven breaks the bonds of the traditional horror novel, combining lyrical storytelling with bone-chilling, surreal suspense.
