If You Like Jeff Strand Books, You’ll Love…

Graverobbers Wanted is the first book in the Andrew Mayhem series. The book starts with Andrew who is desperate for money and looking for some adventure in his life. Andrew gets just that when he’s offered a job to find a key for $20,000. The key is buried with a body in a shallow grave, but when Andrew goes to retrieve it – he finds that the body is still alive and ready to fight for their survival. The job changes a lot from the one he accepted, but he needs the money so he’ll continue on and ends up clashing with a group of filmmakers known as Ghoulish Delights.

Another good book by Strand is called The Odds. The story starts with Ethan losing huge money at a casino and trying to figure out how he is going to explain it to his family. As he’s trying to figure out what to do, a stranger offers him a way out: a game with a 99% chance for him to win ten thousand dollars. That other 1%? He’ll be strapped into a device that shatters his left arm. It seems foolproof, but as the game goes on, the prizes and penalties keep changing and he has no choice but to finish the game.
