Just because I wanted another reason to post about horror books and I am feeling more like a Scrooge than a Cratchit this time of year. So this is my rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas. 🙂 Button was made by Michelle at Limabean designs
On the second day of Christmas, my bookish Santa gave to me…..
Prohibition-era 1930s… After an affair with the wrong man’s wife, seedy piano player Smitty Three Fingers flees the city and finds himself tinkling the ivories at a Louisiana honky-tonk owned by vicious bootlegger Horace Croker and his trophy wife, Grace. Folks come to The Grinnin’ Gator for the liquor and burlesque girls, but they keep coming back for Big George, the giant alligator Croker keeps in the pond out back. Croker is rumored to have fed ex-wives and enemies to his pet, so when Smitty and Grace embark on a torrid affair…what could possibly go wrong? Inspired by true events, Gator Bait mixes hardboiled crime (James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice) with creature horror (Tobe Hooper’s Eaten Alive) to create a riveting tale of suspense.
So I have had my eye on this one for a while, it’s got a mixture of horror, mystery, and suspense. I love creature features especially ones about real animals like gators. Lake Placid is one of my favorite giant rogue croc movies so one about a gator sounds cool. 🙂 It’s only .99 on amazon so I am thinking of snatching it up soon. Might be cheap but all those .99 I click do add up…lol.
