Praise for this book

"A spellbinding adventure in suspense that rollercoasters the reader toward and ending that is the equivalent of hitting a brick wall at 90mph. This is a book you don't walk away from." - Richard Brautigan

"The strongest crossbreeding of cop fiction and the supernatural since Falling Angel. An uncommonly powerful novel." - Ramsey Campbell

"A terrific book...I've never read anything remotely like it. Trying to imagine what must have happened if Raymond Chandler had written The Exorcist is as close as I can come." - Stephen King
