Two personalities, two attitudes, two goals, two methods — one darkness.

Tony Hooper stands in shadow across the street, one amongst many in the crowd of curiosity-hounds gathered to watch a monster’s release. Seventeen years after Mitchell Norton, the devil, terrorized Algonquin, Illinois on a spree of kidnapping, torture and murder, the authorities release the butcher from psychiatric prison.

Tony longs to charge across the street to destroy Norton–no remorse–as if stepping on a cockroach. Only sheer force of will prevents his doing so.

The devil walks the world again. What shall Tony do about it? Aye, what indeed.

After all, this is what Tony does. It’s who he is. The devil himself long ago made Tony into this hunter of monsters. What a sweet twist of fate this is, that he may still, finally, administer justice.

Will FBI Special Agent Linda Monroe stop him? She owes him her life, so how can she possibly put an end to his?

Two men are inexorably linked in the wake of devastation, ripped from the comfortable world they know and thrown into a dark place previously unimaginable. One is driven to evil, to seek a world where unfathomable misery and unbearable pain are the rules of the realm, where the look of death is upon all who practice the wicked craft, and it is a joyful grin, indeed. The other is driven to a gray path where he seeks merely to destroy such incomprehensible evil, to do what the law is not always able to do, to remove from the world the men who become monsters.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This thriller hooked me from the very beginning and I found it near impossible to put it aside. I carried my kindle with me everywhere I went and when snatches of time presented itself, I pulled out the Kindle and read.


Comprises a unique mix of the insane ramblings of a madman as he edges towards the serial killer he will become; the suspense of not knowing who is going to die and how painfully; several twists that you can try to predict but will often come up short; and a lead in Tony Hooper who will not idly sit by and let this murderer kill again.


I have actually read this story twice, yes twice! There are new things to discover each time you read it and I would encourage you to pick it up again, see what you can discover about Tony Hooper the second time around … and see what you can maybe discover about yourself.


A friend recommended that I pick up this book, and boy was she right! This was definitely a good read. After a long day at work, I found myself escaping into the disturbing world of Tony Hooper.


Fabulous! I couldn’t put it down and still think of it now, weeks after I finished reading it. That’s a rarity.

About The Author

I write fiction, long and short. My writings cross over many genres and focus on diverse subjects, ranging from the mysteries of the human mind, with its fragile psychological and emotional states, to the everyday joy and anguish of life on Earth.

I’ve been an avid reader my entire life, and started writing at the age of 12. I love a good story, of course, a compelling plot and satisfying conclusion. Yet as a reader, I’ve always been drawn to great characters. The characters bring me back to an author time and time again. This shows in my writing, where I attempt to create authentic, complex, real characters you can come to love, and in whose company you feel at home. Or maybe you’ll despise a character and want to stick a fork in his eye. Hey, bad guys are fun too!

I did my tour in the real world, serving in the U.S. Air Force, then working as everything from a forklift operator to a bartender in my youth, before settling in as Business Services and Project Manager for a large manufacturing and distribution concern. Now, at long last (Man! Why did I wait so long?), I’m putting pedal to the metal in pursuit of the author’s life.

After many years as a Freelance Editor, with several clients published or aspiring to be so, I co-founded Evolved Publishing, where I serve as Managing Publisher/Editor, and Author. As an author, I started with a few short stories, and released my debut novel, a psychological thriller called “Forgive Me, Alex,” in December 2011. The sequel, “The Devil’s Bane,” is under way and due later in 2013.
