Keo is one of the few who made it through that harrowing first night. Trapped in a small town in Louisiana, he finds himself joining forces with a group of strangers to make sense of what’s happening.
Like thousands of others around the globe at that exact moment, Keo and his new allies will discover that braving the creature-infested first night is only the beginning. Every day from that moment on will be a struggle, and every night will be a nightmare.
This is their story.
Author’s Note: The Walls of Lemuria and The Fields of Lemuria are a two-part standalone storyline that explores the history of Keo, a character that becomes a major player in the ongoing Purge of Babylon series, starting with The Fires of Atlantis.

Detroit, Michigan. The rainy winter has been harsh and prolonged for this industrial town where the death toll climbs at night. But for Homicide Detective Maxine Jonas, murder holds an unlikely appeal. Motor City is her town and she knows how to work the streets to solve a case. Perhaps a little too well…
A brassy woman who’ll drink you under the table at any hour, Maxine is put on temporary leave from the force to straighten herself out, spend time with her dying mother, and otherwise get her affairs in order.
One night after returning home, she hears her cell phone ringing from down the hall. Unnerved that her cell wasn’t on her, she follows the sound into her laundry room where she discovers a dead body. The man has been butchered. Disturbing words have been carved into his flesh. And the call is coming from her desk at the 12th Precinct.
There’s a killer out there and he’s pulling Max into his sick game.
As the case unfolds, evidence keeps turning up all around her. The killer is sucking her in, framing her more tightly day by day, until Max becomes the prime suspect.
There’s only one way to clear her name. She must find the killer. The hunt leads her deep into her dark past. Soon she understands that untangling herself from the game could cost her. And the price is her life.

She came across as a settled person who loved her family, but there was just something that she seemed to be holding back on. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but hey, who was I to question her?
A heart-breaking true story of misplaced trust and horrific abuse.
Edward Charles thought he knew the woman he married. He thought he understood her, and that he had saved her from a maniacal man that made her life a misery. He thought he was her hero, but she wasn’t the one that needed saving.
Edward was a career-driven man when he met Angie. She was going through personal trauma and leant on Edward for support, which he was all too happy to give. They fell in love and began a happy life together. But their fairytale didn’t continue that way as, during a life- changing night, Angie put out a cigarette on Edwards wrist. This event marked the beginning of his painful life of secret abuse.
Edward writes with a colloquial and readable style that reaches the audience on a personal level, making his experiences approachable whilst keeping the reality and gravity of the abuse central to his story.
Readers of A Child Called It series and The Murder of Jeffery Dryden will discover another horrendous secret world, and the heart-rending story of the extraordinary person who suffered it.
Edward’s hellish journey, not only through what his wife forced upon him, but through the difficulty he faced in obtaining help from the authorities, shows true determination and raises a real issue that often remains unnoticed and unacknowledged. Edward has taken part in radio interviews on the issue of male domestic violence, and hopes his story will instil courage and hope in others who may still be suffering in silence.
Children are being used as weapons against fathers and mothers who love them very much.
This book is dedicated to my beautiful daughter with a lot of love.
