I killed a demon. I don't know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped. Well, it stopped for a while. In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon-the terrifying persona he calls "Mr. Monster"-might now be using him. No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape. Download and start listening now!

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leslie | 6/3/2011

    " Wells continues with the story of John Wayne Cleaver, potential serial killer and disaffected teen. While the characterization and conceit was good in I Am Not a Serial Killer, Wells tips the scales into silliness here with his demon FBi agent antagonist and plot. "
