An ancient evil seeks to regain his former power
Michael Thorn, former special forces operative and recently retired LA detective, looks forward to a quiet life in New England with his wife and young children. He has purchased an old Victorian mansion in Cedar Ridge, a village not far from Salem, Massachusetts. But as he arrives at his new home, his old warrior instincts begin to awaken. A fear he never knew while deployed on his missions seeps into his bones as he traverses his new home. In the basement, behind a centuries old wall, he discovers a bullet-riddled skeleton. When he returns with the local law enforcement, the skeleton is gone and the only clue is skeletal footprints that lead away from the cave-like tomb. An old evil, one thought imprisoned forever, walks the earth once again. As the ancient Egyptian sorcerer that once battled Moses seeks to regain his former power, others race to stop him. But will Thorn, a country sheriff, an elderly professor, experienced priest and a shadowy group known as the Assinini be able to stop him? This book moves, for the most part, at a fast clip toward an uncertain ending. At times slowed by backstory, the author still manages to draw the reader into this chilling story.
