Tommy, Dixon, McEwen, PJ, and Alison were always a close knit group until Tommy’s 12th birthday party. Tragedy strikes when a magic trick goes horribly wrong and a woman lays dead.
A local magician Arnold Trotter is railroaded during a rigged trial and locked away. Forever protesting his innocence and after a vicious assault in prison, he is eventually sent to a mental institution in a catatonic state.
Now Tommy is 36 and heading home for the first time in over two decades, but he’s not alone. Someone is slaughtering the residents of Denver Mills with magic trick themed murders and holding those involved with the Trotter trial in a steely grip of fear.
Tommy will have to find the strength to bring his old friends together as secrets and lies are exposed throughout the small town of Denver Mills.
Something evil is coming home, and they’re bringing a whole new bag of tricks.
From an early age reading so many works of varied authors I took the somewhat foolhardy decision to attempt my own novel. I now have five novels on Amazon, “Asylum – 13 Tales of Terror”, “Gated”, “Rapture Falls” and “Vengeance has Fangs” and my latest novel “Abra-Cadaver.” I will be releasing a new collection of short stories called “Campfire Tales” volume one of which will out soon. I am also hard at work on a sequel to “Gated” called “Gated II: Ravenhill Academy”.
I have recently been signed by Taylor Street Books in San Francisco who will be producing my novel “The Montague Portrait”.
I have always been an avid fan of the Horror/Supernatural genres and find that many great works in this field are automatically dismissed due to their subject matter.
