Editorial Reviews

Cemetery Dance - Garrett Peck
"...he creates a bittersweet portrait of the skating culture that arose in Southern California in the 70's while exploring the themes of friendship, loyalty, revenge, and abuse of powerIt has been said that all evil needs to flourish is for good men to remain silent. Gonzalez shows us that silence may be a survival instinct, and how horrible secrets inevitably beget more horrors...and more secrets."

There are no supernatual elements to this story, but plenty of horrific thoughts and actions. A slow burn with well developed characters and a ending that leaves you gasping. Highly recommended,!
