Publisher's Summary

The horrifying sequel to the Bram Stoker Award-nominated novel Pressure.

Though Darren Rust is serving a life sentence in prison, Alex Fletcher is desperate to escape the shadow of his former best friend. Darren is a psychopath who thought he’d found somebody who would kill with him, and when he realized he was wrong, he took everything from Alex. Losing his family—and coping with the heinous act Darren forced him to commit—is too much. Alex is unable to have a normal social life. Until he meets Luna Booth.

She’s fun. Intelligent. Sexy. She’s exactly what he needs right now. Alex may not have found his soul mate, but he’s found somebody that he loves spending time with. Somebody who doesn’t mind the nightmarish skeletons in his closet.

In fact, she may be too understanding. Too interested. And she may have a very dark and twisted secret…

A frightfully, horrifically, blood letting of a good time!

Alex lost everything when his former bestie turned out to be a raging psychopath. Finally on the mend and anxious to make a fresh start, he meets and falls hard for the lovely Luna Booth. She may not be his “forever”, but as his “just right for now” she’s pretty much perfect, or would be if she wasn’t hiding a dangerous secret. Dark, twisted and frighteningly horrifying, “Deathless” is edge of your seat, thrill ride entertainment horror at it’s ABSOLUTE BEST! The speed button was whispering press me, you know you want to do it, go ahead, break the tension! But I resisted! And I am so glad I did. This is a horror fest to be enjoyed and savored! The writing is brilliant! The characters run the full spectrum from “sweet and innocent” to “oh my heaven, just dig a pit and toss them in RIGHT NOW!” All are fully developed, and like them or not, I felt as if I knew every single one! The scene setting is clear, beautifully written, fabulously narrated and flows smoothly, serving not only keep the story moving at a perfect pace, but also keeping the listener up to speed on all the relevant plot details. The dialogue, THIS dialogue, rings so true! It’s written with the perfect amount of tension breaking humorous snark, and narrated with absolutely PERFECT voicing choices, and PERFECT comedic timing! This combination makes this story as delightfully entertaining as it is horrifying, as oxymoronically as that might sound! But believe me, it works beautifully and makes this an engagingly entertaining listen that will grab you from the opening words and will not let you go until the beautifully satisfying conclusion! I’m not going into detail for fear of playing spoiler. I don’t want to ruin the many surprises for anyone! Just listen and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Five stunning stars. I loved it! Oh, and if you’re listening dear author and narrator, I want more of your delightfully winning combination!

Even better than the first book!

Jeff Strand is an amazing author. He has definitely made my list of favorites. This book was even better than the first and it was amazing too. I absolutely love Alex. He has horrible luck. The action was non-stop, and just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for Alex it did. You can listen to this without listening to the first one, but i recommend you do anyway. Amazing work Strand, as always. And narrator, too.

such a great follow up!

jeff stand blends horror and comedy into a anxiety and laughter driven wild ride. In the passenger seat we have our very unfortunate Alex, who can't seem to shake the crazy that keeps finding him! here's to hoping we get a third book eventually!

Enter the cult of Rust

If you haven't read Pressure you really should as it gives a ton of backstory about Alex and Darren and the other pivotal characters.

Deathless picks up somewhere after Pressure let off. Darren is in jail, hopefully forever, and Alex is trying to pick up the pieces of his life. Seeking human company, Alex ends up in a bar where he meets a fascinating woman and they have a one night stand that turns into more. Luna is smart and charming and seems to be exactly what Alex needs. That is until things take a turn.

If anything, this sequel is better than the first book, which is something that doesn't happen very often. This book was spectacular. The action was non-stop, and just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for Alex it did. I can't say more because I don't want to give anything away but after reading Pressure, Deathless, and Dweller I can happily add Jeff Strand to my list of favorite authors. I look forward to reading my way through his extensive catalog.

I received a free review copy of this book from the author via FreeAudioBooks in return for an honest review. I'm picky about the books I request for review and my ratings reflect that. If I hadn't liked it I would have said so.

A great follow up book

I didn't think this book would be as good as the first but I was so wrong! You can listen to it without listening to the first book in the series, but the first book, Pressure, was so good that I'd recommend it. The story, performance and writing is great!

Good creepy story

I hadn’t read book 1 so was nervous I’d be lost. Not so. It was explained enough as a back story to catch me up. Don’t befriend a killer. They will have a following. I enjoyed listening to this book. Kept me coming back.

Sequel made me squirm

This sequel made me squirm almost as much as the original book in the series. It makes me want to never talk to any new in my life.

Fantastic Follow Up!

A fantastic follow up that picks up where Pressure left off. Strand once again weaves the perfect balance of dread and humor in this story of Alex's life after Darren's incarceration and how he continues to haunt his life.
