Nailbiter Returns #1 – The Nailbiter series was a horror that really knew how to make the reader squirm. The town of Buckaroo, Oregon was known as the serial killer capital of the world. Dozens of spree murderers were born in Buckaroo, all with their own unique manner of killing. One of those crazy killers, was Edward “Nailbiter” Warren who enjoyed munching on the freshly grown nails of his victims (🤮). He might’ve been a wack job but it takes one to know one, so the police had Warren help them get to the bottom of their towns bad luck. Turns out there was a supernatural cause behind all these killers. In the end, they believed they’d gotten rid of all the serial killers, everything is great, and Warren gets naughty with a detective (you’ll have to read Nailbiter to see how that all plays out). Now here we are, decades later and the police find someone who shouldn’t be in Buckaroo or even alive. Detectives can’t help but wonder, was everything they went through for nothing and how will they save Buckaroo for good this time?!
