Overview

A graveyard feast beneath the summer moon …

The rural town of Old Hickory. Tennessee was a quiet, picturesque community … until the O'Sheas came to town.

Becoming the new proprietors of the town's only funeral parlor, with the help of their charming patriarch, Square McManus, the Irish family was wholeheartedly accepted by the local townfolk. The thing began to happen. Strange things … horrible, unspeakable things … in the dead of night.

The sighting of wolfish beasts congregating around an open grave in the town cemetery. Frightening changes in several of Old Hickory's less desirable residents. And the brutal murder and devouring of a varsity football player in the wooded wilderness outside of town. Soon, what was once concealed in shadow and secrecy was now starkly revealed, in all its ravenous fury, by the silvery light of the full moon.

As the residents of Old Hickory, as well as the local police, begin to fall victim to an unknown evil, four individuals—the town nerd, a high school jock, a widowed gunsith, and a mysterious transient from a distant shore—find themselves facing what could possibly be a hellish lycanthrope from ancient Ireland … the legendary Arget Bethir … the Silver Beast.

    Hungry like the...

    ...werewolf! Needless to say, this reviewer is a true sucker for a good lycanthrope story, and was delighted to finally read my first Ronald Kelly novel, since hearing good things about him for a while now. Kelly cut his teeth in the horror genre with several pb novels in the 80's and early 90's, and thankfully has re-emerged in recent years with new stuff and reissued backlist, in print and digital. Undertaker's Moon originally appeared as Moon of the Werewolf in 1991, and is one of those throwback novels that I fondly remember during my early days as a horror fiction reader in the mid to late 80's. Set in a small Tennessee town, denizens of Old Hickory are beset by strange deaths after the O'Shea family takes over the town funeral home, led by the enigmatic Crom McManus. But their secrets are dark and deadly, and two teens, a widower, and a mysterious Irish vagabond are all that stand between a pack of bloodthirsty beasts and certain death. While somewhat cliche in parts, the story flowed swiftly, and the bonus story at the end was excellent.

    Good

    A good read, will definitely hold your interest. Although at some points you'll be asking yourself if the characters would really be that dumb.

    Grisly and brilliant

    A tale full of violence and action - but laced with the history of Dark Ages Eire - Undertaker's Moon is a real pageturner.

    Old Hickory and its denizens have a typical small town feel, and their quiet, colourful lives are rudely upset by the arrival of the new Undertaker and the carnage that ensues.

    The lycanthropy is played very well in this book: from the detailed, skin crawling descriptions of the transformations, and some eye-curling gore, as well as examining the desires and urges of the afflicted ones.

    Only the unlikely assortment of the four who know the full horror of what is unfolding can prevent the whole town's demise - and the gripping conclusion will leave your thirst for blood thoroughly sated.
