Bram Stoker Best Novel (nominee)
Paul Henninger is a rookie cop on San Antonio's troubled East Side, where every night is a war against the gangs and the drug dealers. But Paul has a dark past, and a dark inheritance.

The ghost of Martin Henninger has returned to make sure his son, Paul, delivers on his apocalyptic charge, the result of Martin's black magic, and he's killing everyone in his path.

With his two worlds colliding, and the body count stacking up, Paul soon finds himself the lead suspect in a series of grisly cult-style killings, and in an emotional standoff between duty, the truth, his wife, and his dead family.

Meanwhile, Keith Anderson, San Antonio's best homicide detective, is hot on Paul's heels. His investigation takes him deep into the secrets of Paul's family. But what he finds there just might kill them both.

"When I started reading Inheritance, my first reaction was one word - WOW! I kept reading, and I was blown away. Police procedural? Yeah. Horror novel? That, too. But most importantly - one helluva novel. Joe tells a roaring good tale, and when you finish it, you'll have a lot to say, but WOW will be the first word out of your mouth."
- Rick Hautala, author of Glimpses and Indian Summer

"An artful haunting with the gloomy quality of a Terrance Malick crime drama"
