“There’s a thin membrane separating crime and horror fiction, and Alan Baxter seems to have crossed that barrier, blending genres in ways that are organic, unpredictable, and thoroughly captivating.”
Since his childhood, Matt McLeod has been consumed by a darkness. With a lifetime of experience in wrestling with this personal hell, he’s found a way to hone his strange supernatural skill to nefarious ends as a vigilante.
Working within organized crime, a hit job goes south, and McLeod finds himself caught between a brutal mob boss and a corrupt cop. The only chance for any salvation may be a young woman who also has McLeod’s dark talent, but she seems to have murderous plans of her own.
Why we’re excited about this book:
There’s a thin membrane separating crime and horror fiction, and Alan Baxter seems to have crossed that barrier, blending genres in ways that are organic, unpredictable, and thoroughly captivating. Hot off the heels of his previous release, Manifest Recall, Baxter’s latest horror thriller is destined to delight his regular readers and rein in some readers along the way. Gary McMahon (Pretty Little Dead Things) says: “Devouring Dark is a thrilling mix of crime and horror, a book that somehow defies either description yet embraces both. It moves like a juggernaut, thundering towards an intense, emotional conclusion. I devoured Alan Baxter’s dark; you should too.” Published by Grey Matter Press, Devouring Dark by Alan Baxter is available for pre-order nowand releases 6 November 2018.
