Some Things Should Stay Buried…

Matt Frazer, a middle-aged, single parent is struggling to provide for his disabled son. His job at the Riversbend Quarry pays the basic bills, but the medical expenses are quickly piling up. Life has been increasingly difficult ever since the tragedy that cost his wife her life and his son to lose the use of his legs. One fateful day as they are blasting a previously undisturbed section of rock wall, Matt is shocked to discover that they had accidentally unearthed an entrance of some kind, leading deep into the mountainous wall. A fellow employee ventures into the darkness and returns a few minutes later carrying an object that is too farfetched to be true, but is real nonetheless.

Immediately phone calls are made, an injunction is filed and work is suspended. To look after the quarry’s best interests, Matt is reluctantly thrown in with a makeshift team of archeologists, paleontologists and biologists as they venture far into the tunnel and into depths unknown. What they find as they traverse deeper and deeper into the newly discovered cavern is beyond anything they could have possibly imagined in their wildest dreams.

However, as the discoveries start to become more and more bizarre, the team soon begins to understand that this cavern holds a dark secret, one that has remained buried for over four hundred years. As Matt and his colleagues frantically race back to the surface, they all too late realize that
…some things should stay buried.

Check out some of the early reviews…

Warren’s suspenseful story had me rooting for good guys all the way through the book. It had an ending that I did not expect. This author always manages to keep you guessing, and just when you think you have it all figured out, he changes the outcome. Well written, although quite creepy, story, that will make you want to keep the lights on!”

“A very good book. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. The characters were believable and I found myself rooting for the hero. The author made an implausible idea seem perfectly practical. It was a little gory for my taste but, we are talking about David Warren after all. I have read 3 of his 4 books and I look forward to the next one.”

“What I like the most about The Quarry is that it has a high body count of really innovative deaths. All of the deaths are extremely gory, descriptive and thought of outside the box. Hollywood should take note that this is how you satisfy the gore-hounds. It’s not always about churning out massacre after massacre so much as it’s about giving the audience something new to gawk at. As far as written word goes, The Quarry contains some of the most brutal kills that I’ve read in 2016 and 2017 so far.”

“Has more than you think. Really brutal, innovative and descriptive kills. Really tight character relationships and genuine heroes. Good read you can knock out in a few days.”

“I’m sure you’re going to enjoy it if you’re a fan of violence, suspense, and old school horror elements. Witty dialogue, family drama, and culture clash also line the pages in this new novel…”
