Dead And Goneby Harry Shannon
As the long, lonely nights stretch out before him, Jack's dreams overflow with nightmarish images
Unemployed actor Jack Wade takes his comatose wife to an isolated spot in the mountains, a place where a man once murdered his entire family. Frankie was a successful movie producer, but now they have run out of money. This dilapidated cabin is all they have left.
As the long, lonely nights stretch out before him, Jack's dreams overflow with nightmarish images. The isolation loosens his grip on reality. He believes Frankie is capable of leaving her bed and moving around. And as Jack falls apart inside the cabin, someone or something else begins stalking the woods outside.
Is the mountain evil, the cabin haunted? Or is poor Jack just going insane? Harry Shannon's disturbing novel is a relentless, non-stop exercise in terror.

Trophy husband Jack Wade takes his comatose wife to a remote cabin in the mountains. They are flat broke since Frankie, a B movie producer, wasted all their money. The isolation and the redneck locals conspire to drive Jack mad, and eventually he murders his wife. Or was it someone else? Is Frankie alive, walking the halls, chain smoking and mocking him as she did in life, or is she dead and gone in her bed? Could it be both? Dead and Gone is a black humored horror romp in the tradition of the Evil Dead series, and this excellent novel was actually written by the screenwriter, experienced author Harry Shannon.
