A murder victim makes a tasty feast for a family of flesh-eating maggots. But when the maggots become the murderer's next targets, their gruesome banquet turns into a killing field. Can a single courageous worm with a vision inspire the survivors to fight back? Perhaps a brilliant, twisted trick will bring down the monster and serve up the meat for a bloody new feast. And the maggots' moment of glory might give way to the dark fulfillment of their deepest, wildest secret.
Don't miss this twisted horror tale with a difference, available here as an e-book for the first time. Welcome to the latest shocker from award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of mind-bending horror and dark fantasy.
