Book Description

November 2006

Jonathan Steel has no past. Three years ago, a psychopathic killer possessed by the "thirteenth" demon destroyed his life. Now, he searches the countryside for the hideous creature.

For over six weeks, no one has entered the Lakeside Community Church in Louisiana. After a deacon's gruesome death, an evil presence has taken over the church, beginning a terrifying chain of events. Strange writing on the walls, blood-soaked floors, and red-eyed spiders have all appeared in the sanctuary in a matter of days.

This shadow of evil stretches over the lives of Reverend Thomas Parker and his wife. Because of the evil permeating his church, his congregation has been lost, and his own marriage now stands in jeopardy. Seeking Jonathan Steel's help, Parker yearns to free his church and his small community from the clutches of this evil being.

Steel assembles a team to combat the demon and discovers more of his own sordid past. Was he called to Lakeside to help someone in distress, or does he seek revenge against the heinous "thirteenth" demon? As Steel races to the aid of Reverend Parker, he is the center of a final confrontation with a mysterious man from his past who serves the "thirteenth" demon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. July 7 2007

A wonderful story full of suspense. It was good vs. evil. The author's attention to detail regarding science and creation was a plus. The characters were well developed with a full range of emotions such as anger, love and compassion. I recommend if you want a great story that will keep you turning the pages well into the night. I can't wait for the 2nd book in this series.
4.0 out of 5 stars I could hardly put it down. Feb. 19 2007

A man comes crawling up the beach to a woman's home, begging for help. Apparently badly beaten and left to die in the ocean, he's somehow managed to survive. Lapsing into a coma, he wakes up ten days later in the hospital with no memory of who he is or any part of his former life. The only clue the police could find was a frequent diner's card for a local sandwich shop bearing the name J. Steel.

Six weeks later, physically healed but still without his memory, Jonathan is released from the hospital. With nowhere to go, Jonathan accepts a job as caretaker for Dr. Richard Pierce at his vacation condo. As the weeks go past, Jonathan finds himself falling in love with the doctor's daughter April, herself a doctor.

On the eve of their engagement, Jonathan returns to the condo to find the doctor almost dead at the hands of a madman and no sign of his fiancée. Finding her alive and unharmed, Jonathan attempts to escape the madman who had done such violence, only to have them both caught and April killed before Jonathan is able to kill the man, who is actually a demon. As April lay dying in his arms, she told Jonathan that the demon had said that he had to kill Jonathan before he destroyed all of his kind. With her last breath, she begs Jonathan to fight the evil.

For the next six months, Jonathan stays at Richard Pierce's side as he lay in a coma. During his one brief period of lucidity, Jonathan had to tell him about April's death and the death of the demon. Richard rewrites his will, leaving all his possessions to Jonathan to enable him to stop the demons before they take over the planet and after Richard dies, Jonathan begins his quest, hampered by FBI agent Franklin Ross who thinks Jonathan set up the demon's death to gain access to the Pierce money.

And so begins Jonathan's quest. His first hurdle looms immediately; where does one go to find demons? Two years later Jonathan arrives at Lakewood Community Church in Lakeside, Louisiana to begin his battle.

Once I started "The 13th Demon: Altar of the Spiral Eye," I could hardly put it down. I just had to read one more page and suddenly I found it was three a.m. and I had to start work in four hours.

I can hardly wait for the next Jonathan Steel book, "The 12th Demon: The Blood of the Vampyre."

My daughter works with the author of this book. She recommended it to me and I purchased it. Found it to be very entertaining. It is not my usual read but once I got started I did not want to put it down.
