Follow The Maggot Wagon by Robert Essig


Jaimie & Adam, friends since grammar school, plan a road trip to a remote retreat to reminisce and reflect on their longtime friendship. A relationship built on a need for attention, belittlement and hidden insecurities. As they approach their destination, an aged farmhouse becomes center stage that features betrayal and vulnerabilities that are transformed into poisonous developments of the extreme kind.

A Maggot Wagon - a dead meat truck that is called upon to extract dead farm animals, mainly cattle, that have met their demise in one fashion or another. Author Robert Essig has accurately represented the decomposition of humanity and sanity through his novella sized book appropriately titled, Follow The Maggot Wagon. He cleverly pits a volatile friendship against a guilt free conscience and creates a tense foundation of uncharted territory for the reader.

Essig uses his macabre renderings immersed in rotting flesh and horrid deception to capture the deterioration of benevolence. The manner in which he implements these thoughts and concepts forces the reader to be a willing participant to a gruesome true-crime like scenario. There are many involved layers to this brutal work of fiction that ingeniously reveal themselves one at a time.
From the beautiful cover to the literary smell-o-vision, this book wafts the comprehensive stench of inanimate creatures and the wetness of bloody dishonesty. Each and every page begs the forethought of…what if your best friend knows something, a dark secret that you did not, yet in due time all will be disturbingly exposed. A five star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Horror Bookworm Recommendation.
