From the Publisher
J. F. Gonzalez has created a novella that will keep readers gripping the pages a little harder. MATERNAL INSTINCT is a tour-de-force of both horror and suspense -- a gateway into the underworld in which Gonzalez researched during the creation of this novella.
This is perhaps one of the most intense novellas out there and shows why Gonzalez is considered by many to be the next big author in the horror genre.
