Overview

“Rich in characters lovingly drawn and mercilessly executed.” – The Times of London (re The Falling Man)

Book #2 in the Demons Among Us series.

Victor Strake is not who he seems to be.

Big and strong, handsome and charming, he’s a man with a long past and many, many secrets. Victor Strake is a demon. Strake’s been coming to this world for centuries, to murder, to cause mayhem, and to feed on human flesh. Now, he’s going home. To open the doorway between worlds, he’ll have to wait until the night of no moon, and then spill the blood of an innocent at the threshold.

Darrence Michaels is a man with one arm. Ten years ago, Strake ripped the other one from his body while trying to kill him. Now, addicted to painkillers and wired on amphetamines, Darrence is the last of a dying breed, elite soldiers who fight to kill demons.

Darrence and Jessie James – the two have struck up an odd alliance. Darrence is the teacher and Jessie, the eleven-year-old psychic, is the student. Passing through a magic portal to a hellish alternate reality, Jessie must fight Strake, and Strake’s followers, to save a small child from being sacrificed. In the struggle, she may lose her life, and everyone she has ever loved.

“A fast-paced thriller. The story moves at warp speed… before ending in explosive fashion.” – The Boston Globe

“The plot hurtles along like an express train to its smashing climax.”
– Publishers Weekly
