In this sequel to "Crum," Jesse Stone is still on the move. He finds himself in a holy-roller church in Kentucky, on the other side of the Tug River from his native West Virginia, "screaming with the cannibals." From Kentucky he heads to Myrtle Beach, where he gets hired as a lifeguard, although he can t even swim. Of course, trouble follows Jesse Stone. And so he is always in a hurry to leave and he doesn t much care where he is going. Throughout this tale, Jesse anxiously continues his search for a freedom and a future that he knows exists outside of his familiar world.

Praise For Screaming with the Cannibals

“[Maynard] once again succeeds in delivering a devastatingly, soul-searching, scabrous and very funny literary experience."
Michael Shannon Friedman, The Charleston Gazette

"Between the first and last pages of Screaming with the Cannibals are characters so real you can see them bleed, smell their sweat, hear their cries of libido-provoked frustration, wallow with them in the darkness of their spirits and -- God help us all -- laugh when they die the most horrible deaths."
Dave Peyton, Charleston Daily Mail
