Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Lamberson’s ability to twist a scenario and offer up descriptive, shiver-inducing murders makes Personal Demons a gripping must-finish." —Rue Morgue

"Personal Demons is compelling and written with great care."  —Scott Johnson, The Horror Channel

"This book is jam-packed with that superhero quality that makes comic book geeks drool, yet peppered with enough of a good, old-fashioned, crime novel-meets-horror feel just to make sure you know it's crossing genres."  —Paperback Horror

"What sold me on Personal Demons, from its first paragraph to its concluding pages, was the author’s almost uncanny ability to mix characterization, plot and atmosphere into a heady, scary brew."   —T. M. Wright, author, A Manhattan Ghost Story and Strange Seed

"One of the best novels we’ve read in a long, long time."  —Red Scream

The Cipher is a psychopathic serial killer who takes perverse extra pleasure with seeing the face of terror on his victims. He slices their throats with a caring tenderness; takes a photo of their fear-ridden face; and finally kills them. Afterward he uses the picture to have a likeness tattooed on his body so he carries their soul with him that he steals just when they die. Jake Helman is a fallen cop who uses cocaine to take the edge off the demons that haunt his soul. His wife Sheryl is irate with him and is threatening to leave him. Although he cares about her and what she will do, he remains diligent with stalking the Cipher. Billionaire Nicholas "Old Nick" Tower needs a Chief of Security to protect his genetic engineering corporation; he learns of Jake and hires him, which saves his marriage but not his soul as the Tower Corporation takes him away from the Cipher hunt, but soon the soul searching former cop has a new evil to investigate. This taut serial killer horror thriller hooks readers from the onset and as the tension grows the audience becomes deeper involved. The cast is strong especially the Cipher who is an incredible villain with no doubts or bouts of remorse while his adversary is crippled with doubts and bouts of remorse; throw in aptly named Old Nick into the mix. Each has crutches with Cipher being the tattoos and Jake cocaine and alcohol. Fans will appreciate this edgy dark thriller anticipating the gruesome confrontation between evil and fallen good.

i have to say that this book was awsome.  I gotten Haunted Horror Collection and Personal Demons were in i as the first book to read.  I have to admit i thought i was not going to like it.  but i love it.  i gave this book 5 stars out of 5.  i like the fact hat i more then a mystery.  it has demons, monsters, and science stuff...if you love horror/mysteries you will love this one.  when i get payed i will be buying the other two books...enjoy reading the book

A good read. At times a little confusing, things happen so fast. I will read book 2 to see if the storyline flows a little smoother.

Once started, this book is hard to put down. The twists and turns of the plot were completely engrossing. I hope there is a second book!
