  1. The Pines is a story that takes place in the heart of the NJ Pinelands and is about the NJ Devil. It grabs you at the first page and keeps you riveted until the very last sentence. The violence, sex & gore are plentiful so I would not recommend this for the squeamish. It is one of the best horror tales I've ever read and I have re-read it at least a dozen times. If you like the writing style of Laymon or Edward Lee, you will love this book.
