FROM THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE SUPERVILLAINY SAGA
What if all the villains of slasher movies were real? What if the movies made about them were just adaptations of real-life killers with supernatural powers? This is a fact known to William and Carrie because their father, Billy the Undying, was one of the worst slashers of all time. So much so that they've spent the past decade in an asylum out of fear they'd end up just like him. Escaping, the two have decided to form a new life on the road. Except, a chance encounter in a dingy diner introduces William to the girl of his dreams.
Too bad she's a girl on a mission to kill all slashers. But maybe the best way to catch a supernatural serial killer is with another pair of them.
Enjoy this exciting prequel to the United States of Monsters books!
Psycho Killers in Love is a new story by C.T. Phipps, who is an author I really love. Phipps’s writing is one that always makes me laugh and this story is no different. This story brings to life a whole new group of characters set in the United States of Monsters books (Straight Outta Fangton, Bright Falls Mysteries, Red Room and Morgan Detective Agency series). William and Carrie are brother and sister are born “slashers” They have special powers and a need to kill. Their father is a ghost, who follows them around and gives them fits, as they don’t give in to the urge to kill as much as he would like, was also a slasher.
Things get even more hairy when William and Carrie meet a woman who goes around killing slashers, so of course William has the hots for her. But first, they work together to rescue the sorority sisters of Theta Alpha Alpha, which Carrie refers to as T&A (hehehe). There are a few twists and turns in the story that I won’t get into to avoid any spoilers.
While this isn’t my favorite C.T. Phipps story, I did have a good time while listening to it. I grew up with the 80s horror flicks and there are a lot of references used in this story, which I enjoyed, a lot. I also had a great time with the characters, which is no surprise, I always have fun with Phipps’s characters. You can read this story without having read any of the other books set in this world (this one actually takes place chronologically before the others). I do highly recommend this story to fans of 80s slasher films (and any horror fans in general).
This story was performed by Jeffery Kafer, who does a large portion of Phipps’s stories. He does a wonderful job with all the characters. He’s amazing at his ability to bring out the humor in a story. I’m always excited to listen to a book while he reads to me.

looking at the cover it has that b movie feel to it and i love it
It does. I love many of those 80s horror movies.
Haha! When I saw that title I just knew who the author would be. One of these days…, Melanie. 🙂
I do hope you get a chance to try him one day. I think you would like him.
I am not much of a horror reader but I do want to read some of this author’s work. I just have a big list of things I want to read!
This book is more Shaun of the Dead than Night of the Living Dead.
I didn’t know anything about these books. Back in the 80’s I don’t think there was a slasher movie I didn’t go see-until they started all the sequels. Can’t watch them now! Glad you are enjoying these books.
The sequels were so stupid. Some I would watch and laugh at them, but eventually, it was too dumb to even do that.
Ah yes I have the other book of the author on my wishlist!
I’ve really enjoyed all C.T. Phipps’s stories.
