is a collection of three supernatural, page-turning novellas – stories that test the boundaries of lust, vanity and sacrifice. Video is Dead The fading memories Jacob has of his deceased mother are buried on a few VHS home movies. Recently haunted by recurring dreams of her, he sets out to pick up a used VCR, and finds one at a local yard sale.

However this is no ordinary VCR. According to the owner, this particular model not only plays movies, but it allows one to communicate with the dead. Fueled by curiosity, Jacob takes it home and soon discovers that what he possesses opens a doorway to darkness, death, and lust. Energy Drink Miller is frustrated.

Hours at the gym and nothing to show for it. But once a coworker introduces him to RECRÜT, a sports energy drink that guarantees results, the gains come quick. It isn’t long before Miller attains the godlike physique he’s always wanted. Unfortunately, these twelve little ounces come with a side effect – a high price he never expected to pay.

And the more RECRÜT he drinks, the more his world begins to unravel, uncovering a sinister side of himself he never knew existed. The Saltwater Marathon For the past six months, Bryan Combs has been consumed with guilt. He cheated on his wife, Sirena, and fell for the seductive charms of his boss, Carmela. The adultery proved too great for Sirena to handle, so she hopped in her car and drove it into the ocean.

Her body was never recovered. While the fling may have ended, the remorse still remains, and now Bryan buries himself at work, opting for late night shifts at the mall, often drinking himself to sleep in the back office of his once beloved job. But everything changes the morning they show up… Strangers at his office door… screaming, pleading and begging him to open the door because they’re being pursued and desperately need somewhere to hide.

As he awakens from his drunken stupor, he begins to wonder if this some sick joke put on by Carmela? Retribution against him for ending their torrid affair? Bryan wouldn’t be sure until he let these strangers in. However once he does, he soon witnesses for himself what has these people so afraid, so panicked, that he finds it impossible to stay caught in his own spiral of self-loathing.

Wow. What a series of stories this book contains. Finished all three of them in just one day. Incredible writing. All three of the stories in this book have endings that will completely shock you. Just like his book Faith Against the Wolves, this book was a non stop read as it kept my interest the entire time. The stories are all different and unique. In the first novel, Video is Dead, I was hooked after the first page. The story was told with such vivid detail. It was well written. Definitely a good read. The second novel, Energy drink, was interesting. This one was completely different from Video is Dead. It started off one way but the author took it in a completely different direction. It was fun to see how the events all played out for the ending. I definitely didn’t expect it to end the way it did, it was good. The Salt Water Marathon was the last story in the book. This one was crazy! My heart started racing and I had to keep reading to see what happened. So much detail it felt like I was right there with the characters the entire time. This one was a shocker. I loved all of these books. It’s hard for me to find books that I enjoy reading but Jonathan never disappoints me with his writing. Great books, all of them. I strongly recommend reading these.
