The Death Wish Game (2017) by Jonathan Chateau is a very unique horror novel about an interstate bus ride that turns deadly. Down on his luck passenger Rodney Corso and a group of similar passengers are diverted from their trip and become prey to a supernatural force of hunters avenging the slaughter of their people hundreds of years earlier. The story bogs down just a bit as it reaches its conclusion but is generally gripping. Strongly recommended. April 9, 2018
