For she must first defeat her own demons before taking on the utterly terrifying one that is incubating an evil, supernatural virus.

Can Megan stop the plague of violence before it becomes unstoppable?

Editorial Reviews

IndieReader - K.J. Pierce
(5 STARS, Top Book Pick)"...the novel's powerful kick to the "tell it like it is" solar plexus is a big part of what makes the story so formidable. It is a rich, dense novel... The horror lies not in the shock value of jarring scares but in the insidious creep of emotional degradation on a soul-deep level. Winn precisely crafts his characters in such a way that the reader can't help but be emotionally invested in the journey they take, which makes the horror all the more appalling." -IndieReader
Midwest Book Review - D. Donovan
A vast number of horror novels produced today represent genre formula writing at its worst, with shallow characters, predictable plots, and story premises that don't seem very extraordinary. Not so in Dead Soul Mary... Winn takes plenty of time to build up plot and protagonist - and it pays off big time... So it's a real pleasure to find a slowly-building plot where the horror element is tempered by the motivations, influences and history of realistic people just trying to live their lives.
Literary Aficionado - Grady Harp
"The ability to draw the reader into the concept of soul death and still make the story a mystery driven thriller takes talent - a gift MJ Winn so obviously has. He writes with the skill of a poet, imbues his narration with dark humor, creates a plot scenario like a playwright, and all the while keeps his story as fine literature. Talent, incipient notoriety. Read and see".
