Come on a terrifying journey with USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Jeremy Bates to an isolated region plagued with rumors of dark and deadly forces. The locals call it Helltown.

Since the 1980s there have been numerous reports of occult activity and other possibly supernatural phenomenon within certain villages and townships of Summit County, Ohio—an area collectively known as Helltown.

When a group of out-out-town friends investigating the legends are driven off the road by a mysterious hearse, their night of cheap thrills turns to chills as they begin to die one by one.

About the Book
“Bates writes in detailed and haunting prose; dark humor shines through this story about bumpkin Satanic serial killers. The narrative jumps forward at a break-neck speed, following the victims and their pursuers from the detailed climactic chase to their grisly ends. Chapters are foreshadowed by quote openers taken from classic horror movies which can lead to some predictable–but no less fun–scenes. Bates’ doomed characters are reminiscent of their classic horror counterparts, creating a familiar–oddly comforting–narrative. Nevertheless, with the attention to backstory of victims, villains, and heroes, readers are continually lulled into a false sense of security and repeatedly met with suspense, jump scares, and one more gory surprise after the next. True to the spine-tingling nature of the rest of his World’s Scariest Places series, Jeremy Bates offers a truly chilling tale that reminds readers that humans can be the worst type of monster to fear, after all.” – The Booklife Prize
