THE STREETS has just been released. It’s the third novel in Robert Dunbar’s The Pines Trilogy.
It can be read independently of the other two novels THE PINES and THE SHORES. However, for an optimal reading experience you might want to start with the first two in the series. You can pick up all three books at Amazon in various formats.
If you enjoy dark and tasteful fiction then these are a must read. And even better they’re perfect for that obligatory feeling that we all desire in the Fall, since who doesn’t enjoy a thrilling read as the weather starts to cool?
Here’s what the author says about his latest book:
THE STREETS is the final part of Robert Dunbar's THE PINES TRILOGY:
In a desolate city, as ravaged and dangerous as a post-Apocalyptic wasteland, horrors prowl the back alleys. Struggling to survive, a group of young people find themselves trapped in a decaying asylum ... where unspeakable evil lurks.
Do the streets offer escape? Or death?
And the prologue:
Just as there are broken people, there are broken places on this earth.
Some have always been broken.
All cities have such neighborhoods at their edges, and this city is all edges... block after block of bleakly hopeless outskirts.
People don't bury dead cities. They abandon them. They abandon them to the poorest of the poor, to the lost and the doomed.
A few streetlights may still glimmer, but the life of this city ebbed long ago.
It might resemble the site of some cataclysm or as though chains of time had tightened, crushing it. Yet it is not truly old, not as such things are measured. No true cataclysm occurred, and the extinct civilization that built it staggers on, even now unaware of its own demise.
Rot phosphoresces where wounds are deepest, and here decay is well advanced, but some form of life festers still. Things scurry. They twitch in shadows. They splash through flooded alleys and lurk along the docks.
And they travel in packs.
