Overview

“Readers may be bearing early witness to the arrival of a major talent.”
--Kirkus Reviews

Book 1 of the DEMONS AMONG US series.

Jessica “Jessie” James isn’t like other girls her age.

Eleven years old, Jessie has a gift that sets her apart. She can read people’s minds simply by touching their skin with her bare hands. And dark visions come to her in her sleep. Now, she is plagued by the image of a five-year-old girl trapped behind a cinderblock wall in the basement of an abandoned school.

Inside the wall, the little girl is there, alive and yet not alive. A man comes. When Jessie touches him, she learns his secrets. He’s Victor Strake, a serial killer of children. Worse, he isn’t human. He’s a demon from an alternate reality, and he comes to our world to feed on human flesh. He is as old as human history, and the wall is the doorway between his world and ours. To pass through it, Strake must spill the blood of an innocent at its threshold.

Pursued by Strake, tormented by nightmare visions of the crimes the demon has committed, Jessie struggles to save her sanity and her life.

“Great prose, great set-ups, great dialogue and characters that jump off the page. Can’t recommend this enough for those of you who like your thrillers on the very dark side.”
- Bookaholic

“A fast moving, hugely entertaining thriller.”
-- The Observer on Sunday
