My road thriller novel WHITE KNUCKLE won second place as Thriller Of The Year at the 2020 Planet Awards in Berlin, Germany.

Saturday, November 28th, 2020

I’m honored WHITE KNUCKLE received the Planet Award.

The novel was recently published in a beautiful new German translation edition from Berlin publisher Savage Types.

From the publisher’s description:  “There’s a killer on the road… He’s a big rig truck driver who goes by the CB handle White Knuckle, and he’s Jack the Ripper on eighteen wheels. For thirty years he has murdered hundreds of women in unimaginable ways, imprisoning them in a secret compartment in his truck, abducting them in one state and dumping their dead bodies across the country. Dedicated FBI agent Sharon Ormsby is on a mission to hunt down and stop White Knuckle. She goes undercover as a truck driver with a helpful long hauler named Rudy in a cross-country pursuit that will ultimately bring her face-to-face with White Knuckle in a pedal-to-the-metal, high-octane climax on a highway to Hell.”

Here’s what people had to say about WHITE KNUCKLE:

“Eric Red is the successor to Richard Matheson and Robert Bloch. And he proves it once again here in WHITE KNUCKLE with a “road” story that is every bit as memorable as Matheson’s DUEL. Partly horror with a psycho on the loose, partly police procedural, it’s a taut suspense story, and a welcome return to the road horror story by the man who defined this genre with his screenplays NEAR DARK and HITCHER. There is no padding in the story, the pacing moves as relentlessly as White Knuckle’s black Kenworth truck. Literally, no filler – all killer.”  – Robin Pierce, Starburst Magazine. (9/10 stars)

“The character of White Knuckle himself is one of the most gruesome and terrifying ever imagined. Like Thomas Harris did in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, Red demonstrates that the scariest monsters are flesh-and-blood humans we might see on any given day, with an altogether different attitude about the value of life. Eric Red is an author to discover and enjoy, and WHITE KNUCKLE is highly recommended for those who prefer their horror with a huge dose of reality. But avoid reading it before taking a road trip, unless you’re prepared to alter your route before hitting the road.” – Bookgasm.

“Absolutely compelling reading…While WHITE KNUCKLE is punctuated by brutal violence and high action, it’s really powered by its characters. FBI Agent Sharon Ormsby is an effective protagonist that really comes to life, a strong and smart woman with a real life and a past that she will have to confront. The action of the story rests on her able shoulders…You can’t be sure what the future has in store for any character, and you can’t get comfortable with anything or take anyone’s fate for granted.” – Tim Potter, The Horror Review.

“Rip-roaring, knuckle-biting, constantly suspenseful adventure in this riveting mystery thriller by the author of IT WAITS BELOW, WHITE KNUCKLE pits a probationary FBI Special Agent with a sad background and finely tuned intuition against a human monster–a long hauler trucker who began killing and torturing animals at age six and who has slaughtered women and girls in interstate rampages for four decades. Rife with high-octane tension, WHITE KNUCKLE is a Don t Miss, but don’t read while traveling the highways, or sleeping alone.” – Mallory Heart Reviews (Five star review)

“Red’s prose is hammer down all the way. If you’re looking for a good, solid read to wile away a few summer hours, WHITE KNUCKLE is certainly worth a look.” – Cemetery Dance.

“WHITE KNUCKLE is a tautly gripping thriller that keeps you on edge throughout the entire cross-country trek. It’s a heart-thudding thrill-ride that must be taken this summer.” – Arrow In The Head at JoBlo.com.

“WHITE KNUCKLE is one mean mutha truck driver.” – Jack Ketchum.

“An incredibly fast, brutal and exciting thriller that has it all. A wild ride on the highway that the reader will not forget quickly.”

Excellent new review on Dark Owl of the German translation of my road thriller novel WHITE KNUCKLE from the Berlin publisher, Savage Types.

bit.ly/2DJxz6Y

Full English translation of the German review:

“From the screenwriter of the films “Hitcher”, “Near Dark” and “Blue Steel.” A serial killer on the highways has been killing his female victims unmolested for decades, leaving a trail of blood and tears. Known under the CB nickname WHITE KNUCKLE, the trucker, who kills with perverse lust, cruelly killed hundreds of women and buried their bodies all over the country. But now the young FBI agent Sharon Ormsby is on his heels to stop him. Undercover, at the side of an experienced trucker, hunts for the killer in his eighteen-wheeled monster. That means one thing above all: a tough showdown on the highway!

A serial killer is up to mischief on the highway. His prey: pretty women. He’s after her and he’s hungry. In his truck he has his own hiding place for his victims, which is very well hidden. Sounds scary? It is. White Knuckle manages to take the reader on an extremely exciting journey right from the start. But be careful, this will not be a smooth ride! This trip is bloodthirsty, dangerous and brutal. You experience the characters up close through very lively descriptions. The reader experiences feelings, such as fears, despair and hopelessness, up close. It feels like you’re right in the middle of it and even in this truck. Goosebumps feeling guaranteed! The book and its story are captivating and action-packed. You can hardly put the book aside. At the end, White Knuckle puts a real icing on the cake, I promise, it’s terrific.

An incredibly fast, brutal and exciting thriller that has it all. A wild ride on the highway that the reader will not forget quickly.”

Excellent German book review of the new German translation edition of my serial killer road thriller novel WHITE KNUCKLE from the Berlin publisher Savage Types.

“On the highways, a serial killer has been killing his female victims unmolested for decades, leaving a trail of blood and tears. Known under the CB nickname “WHITE KNUCKLE”, the trucker, who kills with perverse lust, cruelly killed hundreds of women and buried their bodies all over the country. But now the young FBI agent Sharon Ormsby is on his heels to stop him. Undercover, at the side of an experienced trucker, chases the killer in his eighteen-wheeled monster.

That means one thing above all: a tough showdown on the highway!

The author Eric Red should / should be known to a number of film fans. His screenplays include several classic action genres. Who doesn’t know “Hitcher, the highway killer”? Now, the small but extremely fine publisher Savage Types, based in Berlin, has cut the ignorant of publishers for mass digestion and brought this incredible cracker to Germany. This fast-paced thriller is just beginning in the mild wind of familiar fabrics from the country that likes to indulge in selfishness and is currently trying to let epidemics or viruses do their job of destroying the world. Resisters who develop a serum are bought up, if they can. Fortunately, you don’t need serum for serial killers, just a few pieces of hot lead and a lot of courage. FBI agent Sharon Ormsby has this to offer when she is targeted at the unknown murderer, who soon turns out to be a mass murderer in the course of the investigation (that much can be revealed). She quickly realizes that a trucker must be the culprit. A track that follows it is wrong. The guy is on the road and rages worse and worse. He is a brutal, bloodthirsty sadist who torments and guts his victims and does worse things, which you can get pictured at the end. In general, the language, the style of the author can set the reader’s head cinema in motion and soon, like in convoy, he sprints across the state’s overland routes and remembers a nasty grinning Rutger Hauer in every car or family carriage, who already made his victims has its sights on. Increases reading pleasure even more. It is also very good that this torture, which is emotional for the protagonists, is described explicitly and close to life and only leaves space for a few small jokes. And because such a normal serial killer hunt no longer really works on its own, Eric Red has decided in some side lines, some quite important, unlike in the giant shelf mainstream, for customers who don’t know what they want, but only want what they know – the crap from the advertising time sprinkling – to close secretly quietly and differently than expected. Small WOW effects and its finale in the whole story add another one. Ultra-extreme (at least for the free market with its Censorship regulations that tell adult people in a kind of advanced self-castration (FSK) what they have to read or look at), hard, bloody and sometimes freaky as well as exciting, nerve-wracking White Knuckle Ride from a story in which the book is so firmly before suspense includes that you can watch your own ankles as they gradually change their natural skin color to white. Is there an unspeakable horror? Quien sabe? THAT must be thriller entertainment. Thank you, Savage Types publisher.”
