Fanatical cultists and their dark rituals threaten reluctant hero Cole Parrish's safety...and his sanity. Cole Parrish is an amateur MMA fighter training for the biggest fight of his career while trying to scrape up enough paying clients for his fledgling law firm to pay the bills. However, a new case involving a secretive young woman's murdered brother changes everything. Cole teams up with his eccentric, rich friend David Goldberg to investigate the murderous cult that seems to be responsible. Along the way, they also butt heads with an anti-social police chief and a drunken politician. Looming over all of this is the prophet of a new cult, a mysterious figure named Tophet, and the shadowy god he claims to be able to summon - The Living Darkness. These events will define Cole Parrish's future, if he survives. The Living Darkness is the first book in the action-packed series The Parrish Chronicles. If you like fast-pace thrillers, heroes with heavy fists, and diabolical villains, then you love this high-voltage series from T. E. Harden.
