About the eBook:
WHEN DEATH STIRS THE EARTH QUAKES WITH RAGE AND FEAR
After a century of buried silence, in Avallon, Washington, a fissure opens to the light and a creature awakens from a stony sleep. Driven by Indian sprits, it is the Witiko, gatherer of power, harvester of human flesh and blood…..
On the Maine coast hired assassins search for their target: John Winter, a former government hit man one of their own. Winter is dying of Cancer even while he’s marked for death. Heading west is his station wagon, he hopes to slip beyond the reach of the hired killers, but they follow close behind all the way across the county…
In the vast, majestic Northwest, the citizens of Avallon are also being pursued – by a more unearthly, insatiable force. A charred tribe of blackened corpses, the newly dead are descending from the mountains, threatening the town and its determined young police chief, Erin O’Donnell.
For her, for John Winter, for everyone, the truth will soon be revealed. Living death, the ghastly legacy of the Witiko, is their only chance for survival…

Patrick Whalen grew up in Washington state. Following high school, he and three friends joined the army and went into the paratroopers. After a three year stint in the army, he enrolled in college and eventually obtained his Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Washington. He went on to work in Child Protective Services in Tucson, Arizona, and then went to work in California for an agency which serves the developmentally disabled and mentally ill. While working at the agency, Mr. Whalen wrote four successful horror novels. Eventually, working full time and writing proved to be too much and he put writing aside. He now resides in a small town in California, and is retired and thinking about taking up writing again. He is enjoying retirement and spends most of his free time trying to teach the golden retreiver he adopted from the local pound how to fetch. Currently the dog's attitude seems to be,'you threw it. You go get it.'
