A little bit of Hell has just come to Earth.
Would you like to become someone else? Well, someone else is about to become you. He will share your heart and your mind, he will seep into your body, he will feel all your ecstasy...

And then he will take you on a slaughterfest.

Occult rites. Ritualistic murder.

You have become possessed.
But not by a ghost.
Not by a demon.
It's something much worse.

Just as God has a messenger, so does the devil, and that messenger is here, now, in your town. He has a message to send...

The Messenger.

A diabolical novel of ultimate erotic horror...

About the Author

EDWARD LEE is the author of almost fifty novels and numerous short stories and novellas (or is it novellae? Hmm.) Several of his properties have been optioned for film, while Header was released on DVD in 2009; also, he has been published in Germany, England, Romania, Greece, and Austria. Recent releases include Bullet Through Your Face and Brain Cheese Buffet (story collections), Header 2, and the hardcore Lovecraftian books The Innswich Horror, Trolley No. 1852, Pages Torn From A Travel Journal, Going Monstering, and Haunter of the Threshold. One of Lee’s creative ambitions is to one day write an effective M.R. James pastiche.

I will start by saying that Edward Lee is without a doubt one of the most hard-core horror writers out there. His novels are as graphic as they come. People with weak stomachs shouldn't read any of his novels right after eating, but with that being said if you want a horror novel that will keep your attention from beginning to end grab a copy of The Messenger. Lee has a way of developing characters and plot at a really fast pace. You will find yourself tearing through the pages wondering what's going to happen next. The Messenger also has some of City infernal, and Infernal Angel aspects to it also, so if you liked those two books The Messenger will not disappoint. I highly recommend The Messenger to anyone who likes hard-core horror.

This book is like a bad train wreck that you can't turn away from. Edward Lee is an amazing author and it's a must read!

I'd read 'Monstrosity' by Edward Lee and although it was an OK story, it just didn't really get me into it or keep me wanting more. I received 'Messenger' and thought I'd give him another try and boy am I glad I did! This is a hardcore horror book with great storytelling from the start. He grabs you early and keeps you hanging on with white knuckles. This book is fast and cruel. Now I know why this guy gets all the praise. One of my favorite quotes I found on him sums this book up perfectly: 'Edward Lee's writing is fast and mean as a chain saw revved to full-tilt boogie.' --Jack Ketchum

Messenger was my first look into the works of Edward Lee, and I have to say that I am fairly impressed with him. I found out about him through Brian Keene's Urban Gothic, which was a tribute to Lee's work and was a very interesting novel in its own right. However, at times it felt like I was reading Laymon again, and not the good Laymon, but these moments were few in number.A small American town has fallen victim to a mysterious being that ensnares its victims to commit horrible crimes, even if they were the sweetest people in the world before it came to them. This being sets out to spread its message of the baser nature of how the world operates, causing a recently-widowed mother to fight it off with the help of a policeman and a seemingly showy professor.I have to say that I did not see the plot twist involving one of the main characters at the end of the novel at all, and I was genuinely surprised to say the least. At times the language and sex seem a bit too gratuitous for my tastes, but the plot itself manages to counterbalance it, as well as a strong female protagonist. I'm glad I was able to read this one first out of the books Lee has written. Very nicely done.
