About This Book
Overview

They’re not breathing. That’s why they’re so still. But that’s not possible . . .

Eleven months after battling Nicholas Tower and the demon Cain, Jake Helman has set up shop as a private investigator in Lower Manhattan. When a woman hires Jake to prove that her dead grandson is dealing a deadly new drug called “Black Magic” on a Brooklyn street corner, Jake uncovers a vicious drug lord’s plot to use voodoo to seize control of the city.

While panic grips New York City, Jake Helman battles gun-wielding zombie assassins, hallucinations, and betrayal at every corner. But voodoo creates more terrors than zombies, and Jake finds himself poised on the edge of insanity as he fights to restore the soul of the one person he trusts.

“Dark fantasy fans will be impressed by this action-packed, gory, and witty read.”

~ Publishers Weekly (August 2010)

“Proving that the first Helman novel wasn’t a one-off fluke, Lamberson (who’s also written the werewolf novel The Frenzy Way, 2010) serves up another helping of action, horror, and supernatural mayhem. As in Personal Demons, it’s Jake’s own journey that provides the story’s dramatic anchor—with all this otherworldly stuff going on, Jake’s efforts to save the life of a friend provide a nice counterpoint. Another fine novel from this increasingly interesting writer.”

~ David Pitt, Booklist (August 2010)

"Make no mistake about it. Greg Lamberson’s second outing into the world of Jake Helman is breathtaking and relentless. This is the occult detective genre done right, with finesse, charm, and nonstop action from an author at the top of his game. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Lamberson’s literary approach is cinematic, bold, and an all-or-nothing bombastic explosion of thrills, chills, and heart-pumping storytelling."

~ Bob Freeman, The Occult Detective (June 2010)

“With as much action-packed fighting scenes as Personal Demons, plenty of twists, some genuine scares, and a world where just about no one can be trusted, Desperate Souls is a surefire hit for anyone who loves cross-genre horror stories.”

~ The Horror Fiction Review (August 2010)
