Book Description:

The star of truTV’s hit show Impractical Jokers—alongside veteran sci-fi and horror writer Darren Wearmouth—delivers a chilling and wickedly fun supernatural novel in the vein of The Strain, in which a beautiful new subway line in New York City unearths an ancient dark horror that threatens the city’s utter destruction and the balance of civilization itself.
After years of waiting, New York's newest subway line is finally ready, an express train that connects the city with the burgeoning communities across the Hudson River. The shining jewel of this state-of-the-art line is a breathtaking visitors’ pavilion beneath the river.  Major dignitaries, including New York City’s Mayor and the President of the United States, are in attendance for the inaugural run, as the first train slowly pulls in.
Under the station’s bright ceiling lights, the shiny silver cars gleam. But as the train comes closer into view, a far different scene becomes visible.
All the train’s cars are empty.
All the cars’ interiors are drenched in blood.
As chaos descends, all those in the pavilion scramble to get out. But the horror is only beginning. High levels of deadly methane fill the tunnels. The structure begins to flood. For those who don’t drown, choke or spark an explosion, another terrifying danger awaits—the thing that killed all those people on the train. It’s out there…and it’s coming.
There's something living beneath New York City, and it's not happy we've woken it up.

Why I Can't Wait Wednesday:
I really love Thrillers/Suspense/Mystery books and the fact that this is coming from the funniest of the four impractical jokers (yes, we love that show) means I have to read it! I am a sucker for a thriller to begin with and this one sounds like I would really like it. I am hoping this team is as good as I think they are also. Darren is a well established writer. James is newer. I really want to read this and was going to pre-order it but I don't know if they are still giving away signed bookmarks. I was trying to get one but never received and answer back! I hope I do hear from them about it. 

What is your Can't Wait Wednesday?

Happy Reading!

  6. I think I'll probably pick this one up but I'm going to have to ignore that it's written by one of the Impractical Jokers. I HATE that show and my husband tortures me with it from time to time.
