Welcome to East Salem. A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.

A local high school girl is found murdered in a park amid horse farms and the wealthy homes of northern Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl—yet none remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot—something tied to an ancient evil?

Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his state-of-the-art security system has been breached by an elderly woman. Mumbling threats in Latin, she attacks him with an uncanny, preternatural strength. Before he has time to process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the girl’s murder at the park. He agrees to help—and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charm years ago when they were in high school.

A heavy darkness is spreading. Yet a heavenly force is also at work.

Dani and Tommy suspect there’s more to the mystery than murder, more to their growing friendship than chance … and more to the evil they’re facing than a mere human killer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wiehl’s latest is a truly creepy story with supernatural undertones that seems eerily real. Ex–football player turned PI Tommy and forensic psychiatrist Dani make a great team in the first in a new series set in East Salem, New York.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “A truly chilling predator and some great snappy, funny dialogue will keep readers engaged. The conclusion sets the stage for two planned sequels.”

    " This is the first book of a trilogy..i was upset when the ending left me hanging but then i realized there will be two more books to follow to continue and end the story..but this first one was amazing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 1/30/2014

    " I loved it! It held me in suspense and I wanted to read the book in one day, because it was SO GOOD! I had to limit myself to three chapters a day. I HIGHLY recommend this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wanda Troupe | 1/30/2014

    " It was okay. Not bad, not great. Kinda hokey in places. BUT, I did finish it so that's saying something. This was either a freebie or a cheapie. Won't be rushing to pick up her latest and greatest at regular price though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/19/2014

    " First time I have read this author and I am glad I picked up the book. Waking Hours is the first book in the East Salem trilogy. A suspense novel with a twist of the supernatural thrown in. There was good pacing with the story line and very entertaining. There were lots of twist and unexpected turns but plenty was left unexplained. Looking forward to the next installment and the author has another series that I may give a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 1/16/2014

    " Good book....creepy. The ending leaves room for a sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirstin | 1/11/2014

    " Liked the characters, but the story was a bit convoluted at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/7/2014

    " This was a great first book of Lis Wiehl's new series. I felt that her Triple Threat series was getting a little stale but she comes back strong with this new series about the paranormal. I loved the characters and felt a strong sense of attachment with even the minor characters of the students. However, the two lead characters are wrote really well. I felt the plot twist was feasible even though I didn't see it coming. I hope the rest of the series is as strong as this one. I would highly recommend this book to anyone reading the Triple Threat series or that is looking for a good paranormal mystery. "

    " Loved this! Couldn't put it down! "

    " despite the glowing reviews here, i lost interest at about p.125. i really liked her triple threat stories, but this just seemed to drag on and on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iman | 12/27/2013

    " I liked this and have been waiting for the next installment. Hope it's as good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 11/11/2013

    " I tend to shy away from suspense that relies too heavily on the biblical stuff, but I read this because I've really enjoyed her thrillers. This was an excellent story. Even though there was no real "ending" to the story or resolution to the story, I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherree | 11/11/2013

    " I had a hard time rating this one. The book was suspenseful and well-written like Wiehl's other books, but the supernatural element turned me off a bit. I enjoyed the story, but didn't think that really added to it. I hate to leave a series unfinished, but I probably won't read the other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Young | 10/21/2013

    " This book really creeped me out! Different than the usual murder mysteries that are out there. I actually was afraid to go to sleep a few nights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin Fenner | 9/8/2013

    " Well done faith-based mystery with some supernatural elements thrown in. This is the first in a series with the last book coming out later in 2013. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Nichols | 7/3/2013

    " Decent story, but has a predictable plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Midnight Blue | 4/25/2013

    " So much of this book was left unresolved that I feel the NEED to read the next book in the series. Very good mix of solid criminology and eerie paranormal happenings......... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/7/2013

    " I don't think I ever read any of her books. It was a good murder mystery book. Also took place in many towns around where I live which made it a little more interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy Schrier gregory | 8/26/2012

    " Really excellent. But quite a cliffhanger...impatient readers may want to wait until the final book in the trilogy is out in September! "

    " I liked this book, it was a little too pat at times, and is only the first book in a series, which usually I avoid until the entire series is out. "
