Synopsis

They walk among us unnoticed, unassuming.

A year after the auto accident that killed his wife, Vince Walters is finally beginning to move forward with his life. With the support of friends, he's digging back into his career and even beginning to date again.

When his estranged mother, Maggie Walters, is murdered, Vince is stunned by the hideous nature of the crime. Maggie lived a quiet life in a small, rural, Pennsylvania town, attending church, reading the Bible, and subscribing to an increasingly paranoid view of the End Times as prophesied in The Book of Revelations. Her brutal killing, which bears all the signs of being related to a sinister satanic cult, is inexplicable given her life of faith.

However, a visit from a childhood playmate confirms what Vince is beginning to uncover about his mother's past: that she was involved with a cult during his early childhood, but later defected and went into hiding with him. As hard as Maggie worked to bury her dark past, it seems that they found her.

Now they've found Vince. And this time, they are not going to give him up.

They have plans for him.

Awful, awful, awful.
March 1st, 2015
I don't know who told this guy he was a writer, but he really, really isn't. I mean how can you take a story about satanic cults and ritualistic murders and make it deathly, deathly dull? It plods along at a snail's pace throughout, with tons of extraneous detail (and not character building stuff - no, this is things like people just moving about, walking from room to room: things the reader doesn't need to know that just drag the story down), leaden dialogue and a plot twist that's so weirdly written into the book you can tell exactly what's going to end up happening from the very outset of the author setting it up. It's clumsy, heavy-handed, and just plain boring. What really irked me about the book, despite all those major, major flaws, was just the sheer level of carelessness with which it's been put together. Formatting errors abound, and you're lucky if you can go an entire page without smacking into a spelling or grammatical mistake. There's really no excuse for that kind of sloppiness. I understand that the book is self-published, but the writer's got a real cheek asking for money for this when it's so shoddily finished. If he wants people to shell out their hard-earned cash for it, the least he could have done was to shell out for an editor himself to make the experience at least a little less excruciating for his readers.
