Come Closer

(2003)
A novel by

 
 
Amanda is happily married, likes her job, likes her life...so those odd dreams she's been having must have been caused by nothing more than stress. Those strange noises around the house? Probably a mouse. Blackouts? Caused by low blood pressure, of course. And that blood on her shirt? Well, everything has a rational explanation.

Instead of a book she had ordered, she is mailed a copy of Demon Possession Past and Present. Soon after, she burns her husband with a cigarette. Accidentally. Something seems to take her over. She begins to study the book on possession. But, as everyone knows, there are no such things as demons. And, if there were, why should they visit Amanda? She has done everything right.

Still, as she watches in horror, Amanda is becoming less and less herself. And more and more someone - or something - known to students of the Kabbalah as Naarmah, a beautiful female evil spirit with a lust for life and a taste for violence. Someone very unlike Amanda.

Genre: Horror

Praise for this book

"A genuinely scary novel about possession and insanity. Hypnotic, disturbing, and written with such sneering confidence you believe every word." - Bret Easton Ellis
