Horror - Thriller/Suspense
Date Published-  4/4/13

…a matter of light and death…
                In the sleepy college town of Cumberton, MD, an old cemetery must be moved to make room for a new dormitory, and an ungodly Light, buried for centuries, escapes. A rash of gruesome student suicides rocks the town. Sheriff Estin Booker teams up with former Baltimore homicide detective Anna Tucci to investigate the deaths. What neither expects is to have all roads point to a 2000-year-old legend which, if true, could lead to the destruction of mankind.
                The most frightening account of the power of evil breeching our world since The Exorcist, DEAD LIGHT will teach you the most improbable lesson you will ever learn:

This scary, fast-paced story kept me reading late into the night.  The premise and history of the ancient evil was fascinating, believable and uniquely developed.  When an ancient curse is accidentally released in a sleepy college town, and pious students mysteriously begin dying in gruesome ways, Sherriff Booker and detective Anna Tucci find themselves racing the Devil in what becomes a challenge of biblical proportions.  The plot they eventually uncover leads to a decision that could be the last hope of mankind. 
I loved the way in which the story evolved as the evidence piled up.   With a diverse and eclectic cast of characters this plot-driven novel transcends most other horror tales because the characters were so well-drawn – flawed, yet determined to use their individual strengths to support a common cause.  At first flummoxed, they resourcefully begin to recognize the magnitude of the assault unknowingly unleashed against their unsuspecting community.  This book kept me awake, engaged, and wondering “What if” as the story drew me deep into its complex and diabolical mystery.
A complimentary copy of the book was provided in return for my honest review.
