It has been 8 years since the country cowered in fear as the serial killer christened The Crucifier wreaked bloody havoc.

Jane Parkes had always considered her ability a fine line between a gift and a curse. She calls it The Shadow World, a place where she can see through the eyes of killers and help bring them to justice.

Her desperation to prove herself led to a basement confrontation that she wasn't prepared for. As a result the Detective that had allowed her to work on the case lay dead alongside the killer.

She put away her ability to see inside the minds of monsters for 8 long years, but now someone else has taken up The Crucifiers' mantle. Someone is killing again, only this time The Shadow World is a two way street and he wants to play.

Sucked into a desperate race for survival Jane is going to learn that sometimes when you stare into the darkness, someone stares back.

A message from the author

Please read before downloading

In October 2014, I decided to write a little book inbetween the Snatchers series (a little tradition of mine) and began writing a story about a father and son that were trying to survive in the Zombie apocalypse. I called it Dead Dayz

In December 2014, I decided to ditch the first draft and concentrate on a new Snatchers book, Snatchers 5: The Dead Don't Yield. I didn't like the finished Dead Dayz, but some individuals who had read the book liked the father and son story, so I decided to incorporate it into the fifth Snatchers book.

The story was about David Johnson and his son, Harry, (Paul and Kyle Dickson), and I saved the best bits from the Dead Dayz book and put it into the Snatchers book.

The following you are about to read is the original Dead Dayz book. If you have read the Snatchers series, then this book still has many parts/chapters that you haven't read before, but the story will certainly be familiar. And if you haven't read the Snatchers series before, then everything I have talked about doesn't matter.

Dead Dayz was initially a standalone novel, before it was dissected for the Snatchers 5 book that was eventually released in February 2015, and it seemed a shame to leave it sitting on my hard drive in its original form.

Innocence: Part 1, Chapters 1 to 21

Heart-stopping supernatural thriller from the master of suspense. Addison Goodheart is not like other people...

Addison Goodheart lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from a society which will destroy him if he is ever seen.

Books are his refuge and his escape: he embraces the riches they have to offer. By night he leaves his hidden chambers and, through a network of storm drains and service tunnels, makes his way into the central library.

And that is where he meets Gwyneth, who, like Addison, also hides her true appearance and struggles to trust anyone.

But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

What does the Parish priest know that he isn't telling her?

Will Kate discover the secret to her personal haunting before it's too late?

Fishtown Blood Bath: Lampreyhead Book One

Being an immortal blood-sucking ghoul has its perks. After five hundred years, Ned's business as a gigolo in Philadelphia is booming: his clients get three-day orgasms and he gets enough food and cash to keep him safe and solvent. And since he transforms into a seven-foot lamprey--he's still in the dark as to why that little inconvenience keeps happening--he's learned to keep a tub of water handy. He's smart like that.

In fact, his utter lack of knowledge of his past and what his true nature is drives Ned to search out the most despicable undead horrors of the world's criminal paranormal underbelly. Armed only with the knowledge that he and his vicious family of bloodsuckers were created by a supremely evil creature in Austria, Ned comes to meet the corrupt necromancer Visconti and his ridiculous werewolf patient Raimond.

In this Clive Barker meets Stephen King style black comedy mash-up, Ned must defeat the stooge-like lethal villain, learn the true nature of the magic that fuels his undead life, save humanity from a cataclysmic convergence of a comet and arcane spells and--some how--get the girl. Will the undead gigolo reject triumph, or will he just suck?
