DECEMBER’s BOOK OF THE MONTH · “PLEBS” by Jim Goforth · Beware, Extreme Terror



by Jim Goforth


BEWARE …Extreme Terror…

Corey Somerset, Tim Hayworth and Lee Hunter have had one hell of a good night.

And it isn’t over yet.

Celebrating their friend’s birthday with drunken debauchery and intoxicated antics they’ve just stumbled through a mini-wave of mindless vandalism and though they’ve wandered far out of the realms of civilization they are keen to keep the party vibe going.

When they encounter a band of mysterious fugitive women who call a bizarre encampment deep in the woods their residence it appears a strong likelihood that continuing the party is on the cards.

But it won’t come without a price.

The collective of unnerving lawless women are open to the suggestion but not without the threesome completing a request first, a seemingly straight forward barter proposition that will bring the boys face to face with something else that dwells in an unorthodox co-existence with the girls in the wilderness.

These are the Plebs and the shocking violent encounter the trio are unwittingly pitched into with these freakish feral fiends may be their first but it won’t be the last.

As the shiftless young men become inextricably entwined and involved with the agenda driven dangerous women so too do their fates, with them unravelling killer secrets, duplicity, bloodshed and brutality along the way that encompasses not just them but more of their friends, new enemies and old enemies.

A simple night of bad decisions escalates and snowballs into an expedition of terror spanning all the way home and beyond with Corey and his friends engulfed in a nightmare where the lines between man and monster blur.

Depravity, death and destruction reign supreme and it isn’t just the Plebs that want them all torn limb from limb.

I love the horror movies of the seventies and eighties, and those are what this book feels like. It has a cinematic quality to it, and the plot to go along with it. (Michael Kanuckel)

An engrossing story of horror, secrets and ultimately vengeance! This book had me up most of the night and I had to sleep with my light on for the rest of it Five stars all the way! I hope we hear more about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! (Jan Raymond)

When I started reading Plebs…I knew it was a horror story by the blurb about it but I NEVER expected the horrors that would unfold on the pages of this book! This had me so engrossed in it that I could not put it down!  Not a short story…not a novella…not a cliffhanger. No…this was a book with six hundred…gore filled pages of pure entertainment! I will definitely be on the lookout for future stories by this author who now has a new fan and I highly recommend Plebs to anyone who is looking for a deep….true horror story. (Denise K)
