"The best writer of horror novels and supernatural thrillers at work today." - Christopher Rice

About the Book:

"Haunted by his dark past and an array of addictions that destroyed his life, Deacon is a man adrift, a lost soul trying to piece back together all that’s been lost. One of his darkest addictions was his relationship with the sexy, enigmatic and seductive Fay Dillon. But their time together ended in horror and sorrow, so when Deacon receives a call informing him Fay’s gone missing, he returns to the small beach town where he grew up, and the cottage on the dunes Deacon and Fay once shared years before. A place of drunken, drug and sex-fueled binges, it summons all the madness of his time there, and drags Deacon back into the tempest that is Fay Dillon.

And this time there may be no escape, because Deacon knows who Fay really is. What she is. What he is. What they both may still be. To find the answers, Deacon must not only return to the cottage, but to the bleakest, darkest parts of nearby Boston, and the depraved underground circles they ran in years earlier, where drugs, alcohol and sex were far from their only compulsions. And now, amidst a whirlwind of black magic, unthinkable violence and the demonic horrors of their past, Deacon must confront both the blood on Fay’s hands, and his own.

He’s about to realize Fay’s not missing at all, but waiting. Elusive as smoke, she waits for him, for those who awaken and watch from the shadows, and for the flow of blood that forever binds the past to the present and the present to the future.

Love hurts…when it’s to the death.
