Overview

From the author of Terror Town, Into Hell, and 13 Drops of Blood, comes James Roy Daley’s debut novel ~

Johnny is a good man, but when he threatens suicide his friend James attempts to stop him. That's when something unnatural clings to him. It is a beast, a monster, a demon that offers no sympathy and takes no prisoners. The creature presents an insane trail of carnage and cannot be stopped. James, trying to find the right path, has made some terrible decisions. Now he's a fugitive, the accidental pawn of this bloodthirsty demon, which comes with but one warning... survival is not an option.

"I loved this book; it’s superbly well written. The metaphors are razor-sharp and inventive, the dialogue is fresh, authentic, and reveals familiar and believable characters efficiently and with minimal description." ~ David Hudnut, author of Night Walk

"James Roy Daley's debut novel is a whirlwind of blood, guts, violence. It takes the reader down an insane path, giving no sympathy, taking no prisoners, and obliterating anything that might translate into a hope. From the most minor character to the main guy James, we're provided ample reason to sympathize, empathize, and comprehend who these people are - but then we see them all tossed into the blender that is the madness that tracks down everyone it touches. The violence is completely unshackled and entirely remorseless."
Patrick S. Dorazio, author of The Dark Trilogy

    Great story

    This book was the first that I had read from James Daly, but it wasn't my last. The story is lean and mean. The main character "James" is driven to the limits and beyond, and he doesn't handle things in a good way. As the story unfolds things gets crazier then you can predict (and so does James) until everything has unraveled. One of the best books I've read in a long while.

    James Roy Daley and THE DEAD PARADE

    This book was just awesome...a thrill ride from start to finish. I really enjoyed it, from the first page to the last, 'cause it had me....right from page one, it had me. The novel was fast, frantic and blood-crazed...just how I like 'em! The main character is a likeable guy who does do horrible things, but I still felt for the guy! The inner monologues were relevant and well set-out. I read until I couldn't keep my eyes open, then woke up the next morning and finished it off straight away.. I HAD to find out what was gonna happen. Well written, well researched and explained, I also feel this is one of the best first novels I have read in a loooong time (maybe ever), and hope that James is working on more. I want MORE Daley!!! I HIGHLY recommend this one to all you readers, and will be reviewing it on other websites for all to see. BUY THIS BOOK and READ IT! Do it NOW!!!!! James Roy Daley is no slack hack...this guy can really turn up the horror!
