On the Lips of Children
By Mark Matthews
A new release from Books of the Dead Press.
“Mother is the name for God on the lips of All Children”
A mother and her twin infants are trapped in a Tijuana to San Diego drug tunnel. The only way the children can survive is for the mother to feed them the bodies and blood of hostages who are trapped as well. When the tunnel to the United States’ side is opened, the children have been changed forever.
This terrifying page-turner is one you won’t soon forget. Read what others are saying:
"You'll never look at jogging, the homeless, or even vampires the same way again. And, no, this book isn't about and doesn't feature vampires at all. What's featured here is infinitely worse.”
"This is not a book for light weights. It is gritty and violent and black as the heart of a drug addict."
"It's Stephen King's Misery on bath salts. In a cave. It scared the crap out of me."
"A brutal, intense ride of claustrophobic horror and gritty, page-turning suspense. This is dark fiction at its visceral, chilling best."
“Like the running drug itself, this story will leave your veins pulsing and wanting more with each turn of the page. The addiction to the thrill can be intoxicating.”
