A four-year-old boy with a rare glandular malfunction, a genius IQ and telepathic power is the catalyst of this compulsively readable novel of dual personality and psychological possession. What is at the core of young Damon’s unusual affliction?
Damon is a “once in a lifetime case” for psychiatrist Kyle Burnette, his colleague, Ted Drinkwater, and nurse Betty Snider.
In psychotherapy, Dr. Burnette discovers a mature, sensual, menacing alter ego within Damon, a rare occurrence in such a young child. Concurrently, the glandular malfunction causes Damon’s body to mature sexually to the level of a grown man’s.
In the tradition of great psychological mysteries such as Sybil and The Three Faces of Eve, Damon is a story based on bizarre but medically impeccable fact. As the tension in C. Terry Cline Jr.’s novel mounts to a high pitch, the reader becomes immersed in the medical experts’ gradual unraveling of Damon’s mystery and the astonishing revelation of how Damon’s cure transforms Dr. Burnette’s own personality and life.

About the Author
Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl - a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the "Chimpion" Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.
At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a "master of suspense" by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.
C. Terry Cline's wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.
