Jenkie Mustard loses control of the zombies she created in Desper Hollow, as Granny’s magic moonshine raises trouble from the dead in the Virginia hills.
“Elizabeth Massie seduces you with her smooth prose and rich characterization and leaves you gasping when it all comes together.”
—F. Paul Wilson
“Desper Hollow is much more than just another zombie story. Sure, there are zombies, the book is also filled with the most memorable characters; from the Mustard clan, to the locals, to the two Hollywood types who travel to the Appalachians to investigate the possibility of a reality show featuring the zombies Jenkie Mustard is holding captive in her trailer.”
