John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them. As he struggles to understand the demon and find a way to kill it, his own mind begins to unravel until he fears he may never regain control. Faced with the reality that he is, perhaps, more monstrous than the monster he is fighting, John must make a final stand against the horrors of both the demon and himself.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Charmaine Clancy | 2/14/2014

    " One of my favourite books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jakub Nowak | 2/7/2014

    " Pretty hard to rate this book. For the most part it did not grip me at all. The supernatural element seems redundant, the protagonist a bit 'fake' and there is too little background for the main ideas. Yet the ending is not that bad and the book ovarall was not that bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ranald Marshall | 2/6/2014

    " superb portrayal of sociopathic behavior and mindset well written and dark with supernatural overtones. Ending falls flat and doesnt really answer the questions the book poses. Excellent storyline but not fully explored and exploited. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Yv | 1/3/2014

    " I feel like this book is a testament to Wells' skill as a writer. It's not an easy task to cast your protagonist as a empathy-lacking sociopath and then expect your readers to relate to and empathize with said sociopath but Wells manages it brilliantly. These aren't really the kind of books I enjoy reading but I was really drawn into this story and had a hard time putting it down until I was finished. That said, I will probably not continue the series. One look into John Cleaver's brain is enough for me. "
