Jack Daniels series, digs into the vaults and unearths a technohorror tale from the depths of hell... 1906 - Something is discovered by workers digging the Panama Canal. Something dormant. Sinister.

The best minds in the world have been recruited to study the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind. But the century of peaceful research is about to end. BECAUSE IT JUST WOKE UP. Book Description: When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert , he has no idea he's been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon. He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan. But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn't just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth... T H E L I S T A billionaire Senator with money to burn... A thirty year old science experiment, about to be revealed... Seven people, marked for death, not for what they know, but for what they are... History is about to repeat itself. THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath, who is known for his Jack Daniels mystery series. It's a technothriller about a group of ten people who each have tattoos of numbers on the bottoms their feet, and don't know why. One of them, a Chicago Homicide cop named Tom Mankowski, has had one of these strange tattoos since birth. When he investigates a violent murder and discovers the victim also has a tattooed number, it sets the ball rolling for an adventure of historic proportions. To say more would give away too much. Like the Jack Daniels series, THE LIST combines laugh out loud humor with serious suspense and thrills. H A U N T E D H O U S E BEYOND AFRAID... It was an experiment in fear. Eight people, each chosen because they lived through a terrifying experience. Survivors. They don't scare easily. They know how to fight back. BEYOND TRAPPED... Each is paid a million dollars to spend one night in a house. The old Butler House, where those grisly murders occurred so many years ago. A house that is supposedly haunted. BEYOND ENDURANCE... They can take whatever they want with them. Religious items. Survival gear. Weapons. All they need to do is last the night. But there is something evil in this house. Something very evil, and very real. And when the dying starts, it comes with horrifying violence and brutal finality. There are much scarier things than ghosts. Things that will kill you slowly and delight in your screams. Things that won't let you get out alive.

    Three Scary Thriller Novels by Jack Kilborn, Horror, Finished 2/22/17 This is another of the series of books written by Jack Kilborn in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective. The first set has a separate review. I read these with my Kindle Unlimited membership.

The first set has a separate review. I read these with my Kindle Unlimited membership. Origin: I read this as a separate book, but since I wanted to read The List and Haunted House, I got the three book version. I’m glad I did, because re-reading Origin makes me remember why I love horror so much! Imagine in President Teddy Roosevelt’s time, as the Panama Canal is being dug, a strange box is found. Imagine that this box brings fear to those who found it, and that fear encourages President Roosevelt to bury the box, along with scientists who know this is a lifetime assignment, who carefully watch the box. One day they then figure out how to open it. Whoops! Come to present day. Every president has been briefed on what is going on in this buried, hidden bunker. However, each president is afraid of the world finding out what was in the box. Each president has to get scientists to the bunker, so scientists with something in their pasts with which the president can blackmail them with are found. As the scientists go underground, they are sworn to secrecy, with the burden of treason hanging over their heads, each knowing it will be a lifetime assignment. Now the box is opened. What happens next? This book is full of screaming horror, and a fear that perhaps there’s a bunker out there of which we are not fully aware. Read this alone or in the omnibus. Worth it. The List: This is another I have already read. Sometimes I hate it when I download a book I’ve already read, sometimes, I’m glad. This is a glad time. Pretend you are a police detective called to a murder scene. The deceased has a tattoo on his heel that you recognize, because you have one exactly like it on your heel. After some research, you find another murder victim had a tattoo on his heel. All of the tattoos, while in the same place, have a different meaning. Suddenly, you find your life is in danger, just as you are put on “vacation” by your chief (Lt. Daniels, whom some of you may remember – her name is mentioned but that is her full participation), you and your partner, also on vacation, decide to do more investigating into the tattoos. You find others with the same tattoos. However, during your search, you are thwarted by men trying to kill you, which is puzzling, because you cannot imagine why! But as more people with tattoos are located, the reason becomes clear: a megalomaniac wants you dead. As you run for your life still trying to understand what these tattoos mean, you come to a horrifying discovery, and then the fun begins. Are you afraid? You should be. Haunted House - 5 stars As Mr. Kilborn is wont to do, this has characters from other books returning. All but one of the survivors of the other books in this trio of books is here; the one that is not a survivor is from one of the Luther Kite books. If you haven’t read any of those, go get them. Survivors of Kite are just as damaged as the survivors in the other books in this triology. If you were offered a million dollars to participate in a fear experiment for a weekend in a haunted house because you survived the previous two books, would you do it? The Haunted House is famous. It comes in second only to the house in Connecticut as the most well-known haunted house in the United States. The reason? An experiment what happens during periods of intense fear. Some accept, some do not. The ones that do accept are terrified out of their minds, but there is no million dollar prize at the end of the weekend as offered. Instead, there are other ideas for the weekend, and none are pretty.

    Once again, fabulous stories by Konrath. I LOVE him. Now I will admit that The List was his weakest of all his books so far. I just didn’t find that one very scary and it was a bit boring at times. But the other two stories were wonderful. The Origin was so freaking crazy and scary and I loved the storyline and the crazy creatures. I also loved the ending. Very surprising and terrifying. And The Haunted House allowed me to see where my favorite characters of all the prior books were and I loved Once again, fabulous stories by Konrath. I LOVE him.

I thought that story was a great finale and there was so much horror there. There were also a few good twists too. Awesome book!

    This was a very good read! All three stories were page turners,but the last one was a doozy! There was mystery, suspense, horror,and just enough comic relief to keep your blood pressure from becoming too over heated! I would definitely recommend this book,but not for the faint of heart or easily scared.😉 The only 'wish' is that I'd read the other books that were referenced in this one. Again, great read. Really.

    Good trilogy I really enjoyed these stories but I cannot understand why writers have to go overboard. It's a lot like king and koontz books where you really get into it then they throw in something so bizarre and totally unbelievable and ruin a good thriller! That's what happened in every story here. I found myself skimming pages to get thru all the crap. All in all it could've been a really great 5 star book if it wasn't for the overkill.

    I can’t wait to start another Konrath novel!!! Seriously!! I cannot explain how completely, totally in love I am with this author!! The stories grip you tight from the beginning and don’t let go until they conclude!! If you love horror the way I do, you’d thoroughly enjoy these well written, very original and amazing books!

    Three novels Sorry J.A. Konrath. I made it through the Origin, barely through The List and just could not get into Haunted House. I am a huge fan! Which makes this review hard to write. These 3 books were disappointing to me because they were boring compared to all your other books I have read. Not enough suspense or mystery. Just not thrilling.

    Terror/thriller books of a different order. Once you get past the shock factor of Konrath/Kilborn's writing, where he isn't afraid to introduce readers to the horrors that CAN and DO actually happen in real life. This trilogy contains SOME fantasy factors that aren't "real life", but over all, Konrath delivers an eerily realistic tale. Terror/thriller books of a different order.

    Horror, The Government and The Heroes This trilogy is non-stop adventure! While it is somewhat gory, the stories themselves are really intriguing. The characters are well-written and draw you into their battles. I look forward to reading more of Konrath's books! Kari Horror, The Government and The Heroes This trilogy is non-stop adventure!

    All 3 were great! All 3 of these books were great reads, I have to say that The List was my favorite of the 3! The concept was new & fresh, great story line & characters. The comic relief was laugh out loud in the face of a gripping thriller. Well done!

    A truly great horror writer Had to read each of the 3 stories in one Setting. And I liked how haunted house seemed to sum things up. A must read.
