As a former soldier and police consultant, Luis Quintana has seen the horrors of war and the brutality of crime on the streets. But when a ritualistic mass murder links an old friend to a lurking supernatural terror, Quintana must uncover a truth he'd thought long hidden, and face a horror he thought he'd long escaped.
Tristan Tarwater, author of THIEVES AT HEART and SELF-MADE SCOUNDREL, breaks into new territory with a bold vision of terror that combines the disorienting cosmic horror of Lovecraft with the modern sensibility of the urban streets.
"This story grabs you from the very beginning; takes you down a road of ever-increasing dread, and doesn't let up until its shocking conclusion." - Amazon Reviews
