Coming November 2018
Devouring Dark is Baxter’s full-length urban horror novel about a man plagued since childhood by a malevolent darkness that threatens to consume him. After a lifetime spent wrestling for control over this onslaught, Matt McLeod has learned to wield his mysterious paranormal skill to achieve an odious goal: retribution as a supernatural vigilante.
When one such hit goes bad, McLeod finds himself ensnared in a multi-tentacled criminal enterprise caught between a corrupt cop and a brutal mobster. His only promise of salvation may be a bewitching woman who shares his dark talent but has murderous designs of her own. The gritty thriller Devouring Dark is based on Baxter’s award-winning short story “Shadows of the Lonely Dead” and is scheduled for release this fall.
Praise for Devouring Dark
“Devouring Dark is a powerful tale of crime and death, cleverly crafted and flawlessly executed. I’m a fan of Alan Baxter and Devouring Dark is a perfect example of why. Do yourself a favor and join me for some shivers.” – James A. Moore author of Seven Forges and the Serenity Falls trilogy.
