Melton and Dunstan Book Haunted Bullet Train to Vegas

Feast co-creators Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan, whose credits also include the fourth through seven Saw installments as well as the upcoming Hellraiser remake and the sequel Piranha 3 DD, are moving into publishing with a Little Brown deal for their first novel, “Blacklight,” reports Deadline.

The book is the story of a ghost hunter private eye with psychic abilities who is hired to take the inaugural ride on the new bullet train that goes directly from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. His job is to figure out if the train’s haunted, but each case he takes on fuels his own lifelong obsession: to locate the spirits of his parents who were the victims of an unsolved murder when he was a child.

The scribes intend for this to be the start of a series surrounding the private eye, Buck Carlsbad. Melton & Dunstan’s reps at Underground and APA will shop the feature rights.
