Great advance review for WHITE KNUCKLE on The Horror Review.

Monday, March 30th, 2015

“Horror veteran Eric Red brings all of his prodigious storytelling powers to bear in his newest novel, White Knuckle. The title may reference the ways a driver curls their fingers around the wheel but the reader will find the novel has the same effect on their fingers around this book. Eric Red first took horror to the highways back in 1984 when he wrote the screenplay for the horror classic The Hitcher.

White Knuckle is a contemporary tale of a long-haul trucker serial killer and the FBI Special Agent out to stop him. Sharon Ormsby is a new Agent with the Bureau assigned to the Highway Serial Killer Initiative when she discovers a pattern among dead women found along the nation’s highways. The problem is that the bodies are separated by thousands of miles and more than twenty years. Can there really be a serial killer out there who has been using the interstate highways as a killing field for such a long time, can there be someone out there that dangerous? I’m not giving anything away when I say that there is, and that things are worse than anyone could have imagined…”‘

Dread Central on my new serial killer thriller novel, WHITE KNUCKLE.

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

“The multi-talented Eric Red is a novelist, screenwriter, and film director; and he has a new book heading our way in early June entitled White Knuckle from Samhain Publishing.  Read on for all the details and a look at the cover art.

From the Press Release:
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.

The official release date is June 2, 2015.

Samhain Publishing Executive Editor Don D’Auria says: “Like all the best writers—and directors—Eric Red is versatile. Whether he’s dealing with the supernatural or the psychological, he knows exactly how to get the maximum suspense and tension out of any scene. He’s a master at it!”
