Jackson Cole is a newly minted homicide detective thrown head first into the grinder when he is ordered to investigate the grisly murder of three women, each adorned with occult symbols.
The press is stirring up a frenzy about a killer cult. The mayor, the chief of police, and Cole’s captain want results to calm an increasingly fearful public, and Cole’s partner is nowhere to be found. It’s just another day at the office until a stranger shows up spouting a wild theory: blood magic.
Cole won’t even consider it. There is no such thing as magic, no such thing as voodoo. And there are definitely no demons roaming the Charleston Peninsula. There’s always a rational explanation for the evil humans commit upon one another. Until a demon tries to take Cole’s head off.
How do you stop a supernatural evil, something ancient and unencumbered by the laws of physics or man? Especially when all you bring to the fight is a pistol and a pair of handcuffs. If Jackson Cole wants to close this case, he’ll need to open his mind to a world of the impossible. A world he never knew existed, until now. And he’ll have to survive it.
