“Hellrider is a thunder and muscle hell ride through dangerous territory. Fun, wicked, and unrelenting. A horror thriller that breaks the rules and the speed limit at the same time.” - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author

When Eddie Ryder is burned alive by fellow members of the Hell Riders motorcycle gang for ratting on them, he vows revenge with his dying breath. He returns as a ghost, with his custom motorcycle Diablo by his side. After he finds out he can possess people, he launches a campaign of vengeance that leaves plenty of bodies in its wake and the police in a state of confusion. Spouting fire and lightning from his fingers and screaming heavy metal lyrics as he rides the sky above the town of Hell Creek, he brings destruction down on all those who wronged him, his power growing with every death. Only Eddie’s younger brother, Carson, and the police chief’s daughter, Ellie, understand what’s really happening, and now they have to stop him before he destroys the whole town.

“HELLRIDER is a thunder and muscle hell ride through dangerous territory. Fun, wicked, and unrelenting. A horror thriller that breaks the rules and the speed limit at the same time.” - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO and DEAD OF NIGHT

"Remember when you were a kid and you'd sneak into the other theater or flip the channel to catch the horror movie, the one with lots of blood and a kickass soundtrack? HELLRIDER will take you back to those days when horror was fast and furious, and it's as satisfying as a butter-drenched tub of popcorn with a Saturday night horror flick." - Lisa Morton, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of SUMMER'S END and NETHERWORLD

"Death rides a pale horse indeed! JG Faherty's latest creation, HELLRIDER, is a gritty metaphysical journey of small town desperation and revenge. A tense gut-twister that will have you hanging on every word."
- Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE SAVAGE DEAD and FLESH EATERS

JG Faherty’s HELLRIDER is suspense-filled, revenge-fueled, supernatural mayhem at its best! Sons of Anarchy meets Stephen King’s “Sometimes They Come Back.” It’s one hell of a ride! – Tim Waggoner, author of BONE WHISPERS and LIKE DEATH.

"Having been a fan of JG's books for quite some time now, it is the ultimate honor to have some of my lyrics from my band Charred Walls of the Damned included in HELLRIDER. Whether you're a horror fan, a metal fan, or just a fan of great writing, HELLRIDER is for you!" - Richard Christy, Charred Walls of the Damned and Sirius/XM Radio

“Insanely entertaining! HELLRIDER is fast-paced and bloody, with a deliciously mean streak of humor. I loved it!” - Jeff Strand, author of WOLF HUNT
