Publisher's Summary

James Straley might think his life is cursed, but it doesn't compare to what lies ahead of him on life's highway. He's on the run with the proceeds of a botched bank robbery. It's all he has. His crew is dead and his getaway car just died on him. He's on foot with the cash when he comes across a two-car pileup. There's no saving the drivers, but he can save himself by stealing one of the wrecked cars. Unfortunately, he boosts the wrong set of wheels.

Within an hour of driving off, he develops a rash that eats away at his flesh. No doctor can help him - only the car's original owner. If Straley wants his skin back, he must journey on the road to redemption, which ends in the heart of Central America.

Road Rash first appeared in the anthology Butcher Shop Quartet 2.

Simon Janus is the horror identity for the award winning thriller writer, Simon Wood.

Awesome Story

This is a great short story, I did not want it to end, The authors did a great job of spinning this yarn to us listeners, The progression of the story was perfect with just the right amount of twists...How about Sylvia, the way they created her character was cool, chicken bones and all, I was sure glad when Kelso finally got his. Ed Hunter did a great job of narrating....I received this promo audiobook for free and I am voluntarily giving a review.

I Really Enjoyed This Story

What started a bit slow and turned me off a bit, turned out to be a really great story. I didn't know where the author was leading me at all and as he walked me through his story I liked it more and more. I liked how gruesome the story was and found the gore to be at the right level to really paint the picture perfectly. This story teaches you that there is no honor among thieves and just when you think you are the worst person alive, turns out someone else holds that title. Ed Hunter does a great job with his narration and really brings everything to life.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

A nicely done and well narrated quickie.

A good and quick one. I enjoyed the progression of the story and I liked the writing style, especially since it was a new to me author.
