Overview

On one hot August night, 15-year-old Cassandra Harper's life is shattered. First, she becomes a victim of date rape, then the body of her beloved father, Richard Harper, is found slumped over the computer he gave Cassandra for her 15th birthday.

From that point on, Cassandra withdraws from the world, reserving her communications to her anonymously-written blog.and to instant messenger conversations with her dead father.

Devil's Messenger, a combination horror story and murder mystery, is the story of how Cassandra battles from the brink of despair to reclaim her life, and her evil father who attempts to continue his reign of terror from beyond the grave.

Adding to the mix is Richard Harper's murderer, who is manipulating Cassandra's family and everyone else in the small community of Westport seeking the hidden fortune that Harper left behind.

Devil's Messenger is a roller-coaster ride of terror from beginning to end.

    A horror story with a heart and a sense of humor

    Devil's Messenger is a perfect combination of terrifying and funny. The basic story sounds like a downer- teenager Cassandra Harper is raped and her father is murdered on the same night. It's your basic murder mystery plot everyone had a motive to kill Cassandra's father, including the man her mother is dating...Cassandra's teacher. But author Randy Turner throws a few wrinkles into the basic plot. Richard Harper is not your ordinary murder victim. He was a devil worshipper who continues to communicate with Cassandra even after his death, via Instant Messenger. The characters are particularly well drawn, especially Cassandra, her preppy older sister Brittany, the teacher Oscar Whittington, and Mama Belinda, the mysterious psychic who may hold the key to the mystery. IUniverse appears to be marketing this for teens and young adults, but this novel is also accessible for older readers. It's a horror story with a heart and a sense of humor.
