WE'RE ALL DAMNED.
IT'S JUST A QUESTION OF WHEN.
As his estranged father lies on his deathbed, horror novelist Paul Steele is stunned by the old man’s admission: Many years ago, he committed a ghastly crime and was never caught, his freedom bartered in a black-magic spell. On his last breath, he warns Paul that he should expect a visit from a mysterious stranger. “He’ll be coming son. A dark man. A man from the shadows.”
Soon, a chilling figure appears outside Paul’s home during a late-night thunderstorm—a vile and sinister man called Haughnt. When Paul confronts him, he is horrified to learn that not only does Haughnt possess unimaginable magic, but has come to collect on his father’s debt. Given two choices, both unspeakable, he must find a way to break an unbreakable contract, a curse sealed in his family’s bloodline. Stifled at every turn, as time ticks away and Haughnt’s relentless grip tightens, Paul faces a cold reality: We’re all damned. It’s just a question of when.

About the Author
Award-winning author David C. Cassidy is the twisted mind behind several best-selling novels of horror and suspense. An author, photographer, and graphic designer—and a half-decent juggler—he spends his writing life creating dark and touching stories where Bad Things Happen To Good People. Raised by wolves, he grew up with a love of nature, music, science, and history, with thrillers and horror novels feeding the dark side of his seriously disturbed imagination. He talks to his characters, talks often, and most times they listen. But the real fun starts when they tell him to take a hike, and they Open That Door anyway. Idiots. David lives in Ontario, Canada. From Mozart to Vivaldi, classic jazz to classic rock, he feels naked without his iPod. Suffering from MAD—Multiple Activity Disorder—he divides his time between writing and blogging, photography and Photoshop, reading and rollerblading. An avid amateur astronomer, he loves the night sky, chasing the stars with his telescope. Sometimes he eats.
