A small town on the coast where strange things are happening.
A mysterious island not far away.
A mansion, rumored to be haunted.
These are classic settings that I’ve enjoyed in many horror stories and movies.
In my last book, I used the ‘folk horror’ setting of an English village. In Book 2, Whispers from the Deep, I decided to take the plunge and move things Stateside.
But not before some demonic shenanigans in a basement.
What happens when someone tries to defy death? That’s the question we explored in this book.
Our fear of mortality is balanced by a conviction that if we tinker with the natural order of things, we will end up regretting it. Certainly, Marcus Mortlake and his long-suffering girlfriend Lynn Carroll find they have their work cut out when they tackle an occultist with a dangerous obsession.
And they have another brush with the mysterious Shadow Trust, an organization that is as powerful as it is, well, shady.
I hope you enjoy this one, and that it whets your appetite for the third and final book in the Book of Death series.
See you in the shadows,
