Publisher's Summary

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?
#1: Don't go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.
#2: Don't pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy.
So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2?
When Blake Crouch (DESERT PLACES, ABANDON) and Jack Kilborn (AFRAID, CHERRY BOMB), face-off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an "After School Special," SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.
Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other's opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psychopath win.
F. Paul Wilson says, "SERIAL reads just like a Crouch or Kilborn novel: Full speed ahead, no flinching, no blinking, no brakes."
Along with the reinsertion of additional material cut from the original version, SERIAL UNCUT also has a vastly expanded beginning and ending, including an extended section that originally appeared in the novella TRUCK STOP by J.A. Konrath.
If you can handle horrific thrills, proceed at your own risk.
But if you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should read something else instead.
The authors are in no way responsible for any lost sleep, missed work, failed relationships, or difficulty in coping with life after you have read SERIAL UNCUT. They will not pay for any therapy you may require as a result of reading SERIAL UNCUT. They will not cradle you in their arms, rock you back and forth, and speak in soothing tones while you unsuccessfully try to forget SERIAL UNCUT.
You have been warned...

Serial uncut

Very well written, although not for the faint hearted. As it is only short, it is a good introduction to the authors' other works.

Crouch, Kilborn and Konrath - a unity of sickness.

This is my third installment from the pen of Killborn and just like 'Trapped' and 'Endurance', this one did not disappoint. I must admit with this particular book, the vivid and graphic nature of the story did start to disturb me at certain times. But what can you expect from a book where the nature of the story recounts clear monologues in the context of serial killing. I am about to start Kilborn's fourth book, 'Afraid', but perhaps I should take a couple of days of first, just to recover....brilliant author(s)...brilliant story.....thank you audible.
