Evil hides behind starched white masks. The ancient Aztec demon now conducts his affairs in the sterile environment of corporate medical facilities. An insatiable hunger draws the demon to a sleepy Louisiana hamlet. There, it contracts the services of a young attorney, Jim David, whose unborn child is the ultimate object of the demon's designs. Monsignor, a mysterious priest of unknown age and origin, labors unseen to save the soul of a small town hidden deep within Louisiana's plantation country, nearly forgotten in a bend of the Mississippi River.
You'll be gripped from start to heart-stopping finish in this page-turning thriller from new author S.L. Smith.
With roots in Bram Stoker's Dracula, this horror novel reads like Stephen King's classic stories of towns being slowly devoured by an unseen evil and the people who unite against it.
The book is set in southern Louisiana, an area the author brings to life with compelling detail based on his local knowledge.

This book is AMAZING! Smith takes horror to a whole new level IN A WHOLE NEW DIRECTION! As I was reading, I kept thinking to myself -- this is brilliant, why hasn't anybody written horror stories about these clinics?? I also really like the 80s VIBE and all the 80s references! Will be waiting for the next installment :)
DANG, that was a wild ride. S. L. Smith has invented a whole new way to SCARE people. You think you know where this is going, and then -- WHOA -- it goes deeper and deeper and DEEPER! Smith has developed a back story that just keeps deepening and drawing you into its mystery, like the X-FILES. I'm actually surprised that no one has yet set a horror novel in an abortion clinic, and this definitely tinges the way I look at that whole issue. I love that it's set in the 80's, and it reminds me of all those good 80s classics, like E.T. and IT and The Monster Squad -- does anybody remember that last one? I HIGHLY recommend this to horror lovers. Also, shout out to the Monsignor character [SPOILER ALERT] -- he's the Van Helsing or Gandalf of the story, and he's just fantastic. SMITH, please write more about this character!!!
Scary as hell! Awesome. Just see how easily this book leads you into true fear. Scary as hell.
