Summary

A graveyard feast beneath the summer moon....

The rural town of Old Hickory. Tennessee was a quiet, picturesque community...until the O'Sheas came to town.

Becoming the new proprietors of the town's only funeral parlor, with the help of their charming patriarch, Square McManus, the Irish family was wholeheartedly accepted by the local town folk. The thing began to happen. Strange things...horrible, unspeakable things...in the dead of night.

The sighting of wolfish beasts congregating around an open grave in the town cemetery. Frightening changes in several of Old Hickory's less desirable residents. And the brutal murder and devourment of a varsity football player in the wooded wilderness outside of town. Soon, what was once concealed in shadow and secrecy was now starkly revealed, in all its ravenous fury, by the silvery light of the full moon.

As the residents of Old Hickory, as well as the local police, begin to fall victim to an unknown evil, four individuals - the town nerd, a high school jock, a widowed gunsith, and a mysterious transient from a distant shore - find themselves facing what could possibly be a hellish lycanthrope from ancient Ireland...the legendary Arget Bethir...the Silver Beast.

Undertakers moon

I bought this book on a whim. So glad I did. one of the best books I've purchased. A great story, keeps you enthralled and curious all the way through. loved the narrator.J Rodney Turner and the gravel in his voice he keeps the story rolling along..this is well worth a credit..I'll be looking out from more books from the author and the narrator!!

Excellent Southern Werewolf Novel

I've only recently discovered the wonderful books of Ronald Kelly. He really is a fantastic writer with stories full of great characters and atmosphere.
Undertaker's Moon is a top tier werewolf tale that is compelling throughout.
J. Rodney Turner's narration is ideal for this type of southern-fried tale. He sounds just like a cowboy, and I think he's the ideal narrator for Kelly's work. It was a pleasure to listen to.
Another brilliant audiobook from Crossroad Press.
Highly recommended.

very good listen

it wraps up very simply and somewhat quickly but it doesn't leave loose ends that would frustrate those who like the full vision.

Great story of horror.

An excellent story of gore and terror. My only gripe is the narrator's difficulty with an Irish accent.

Different but great

Just the tale I was looking to find,. Kelly's take on the legend was unexpected but much appriceated. I truly enjoyed it.

Good story but scrubby voice narration

Was a very good storyline, scary, had funny parts and came together well at the end. The antagonist got off easy compared to the ones he turned except for that rotten kid. But without him the story would’ve been dull.

really good story

Overall this is a great story. I would really love to have a follow-up story or prequel. For being a standalone, I thought it was pretty good.
