FINALIST - 2013 INDIE BOOK AWARDS (Horror/Suspense)
"An addictive read that forces absurd thoughts of parallel existences, this is the second consecutive home-run for Todd, and without question: a must own piece of literature." - Horror Novel Reviews
"TLM is ALT on steroids. It's way more dark, disturbing, and sinister compared to ALT. [...] The pacing was well executed with the right balance of emotion, action, dread, and suspense." - Downright Creepy
Following the unsettling events of A Life Transparent, Donovan Candle has struggled to redefine himself after escaping the Monochrome, a colorless reality mirroring our own. Nearly a year later, his efforts have finally paid off: his wife, Donna, is pregnant with their first child, and his novel is complete. Life for the Candle family is good-for now.
Working as a private investigator alongside his brother, Donovan has witnessed the startling number of Missing Persons cases occurring around the city, familiar signs that something more devious is at play. His fears are confirmed when the bodies of several young men and women are discovered, apparent victims of a brutal murderer.
At first he's hesitant to act, but when Donna's nephew is abducted by the suspected killer, Donovan finds he has no choice but to face his fears. This time there is more at stake than just his own happiness, and doing the right thing may come at a terrible price . . .
In The Liminal Man, Todd Keisling continues the terrifying fable of Donovan Candle, entwining him in the ominous plot of a sadistic new enemy, and keeping readers enthralled until the very end.
