About This Book
Overview

Jake Helman, an elite member of the New York Special Homicide Task Force, faces what every cop dreads—an elusive serial killer. While investigating a series of bloodletting sacrifice rituals executed by an ominous perpetrator known as The Cipher, Jake refuses to submit to a drug test and resigns from the police department. Tower International, a controversial genetic engineering company, employs him as their director of security.

While battling an addiction to cocaine, Jake enters his new high-pressure position in the private sector. What he encounters behind the closed doors of this sinister operation is beyond the realm of human imagination. Too horrible to contemplate, the experimentation is pure madness, the outcome a hell where only pain and terror reside. Nicholas Tower is not the hero flaunted on the cover of Time magazine. Beneath the polished exterior of this frontiersman on the cutting edge of science is a corporate executive surrounded by the creations of his deranged mind.

As Jake delves deeper into the hidden sphere of this frightening laboratory, his discoveries elicit more than condemnation for unethical practices performed for the good of mankind. Sequestered in rooms veiled in secrecy is the worst crime the world will ever see—the theft of the human soul.

“This is a highly imaginative novel, loaded with atmosphere and in-your-face imagery. Very nicely done.”

~David Pitt, BookList (September 2009)

“Raw, edgy, dark, and twisted, Gregory Lamberson has delivered a memorable thriller with Personal Demons. Lamberson draws you in with a skillfully woven narrative that is both sharp and sophisticated. Fans of the serial killer genre will be pleasantly surprised. Lamberson mixes genres effortlessly, combining elements of horror, science fiction, and the supernatural thriller into an intricate tale of the battle between good and evil . . . a battle waged both within and without. This is the kind of novel that keeps you relentlessly glued to the page and leaves you thinking about it long after it is finished. Personal Demons cannot be recommended highly enough.”

~ Bob Freeman, Monster Librarian (September 2009)

“Personal Demons is the biggest little book you will ever read. There. I said it. This book is jam-packed with that superhero quality that makes comic book geeks drool, yet peppered with enough of a good, old-fashioned, crime novel-meets-horror feel just to make sure you know it's crossing genres. It also slices, dices, and washes your car! All this and more!”

~ Paperback Horror (May 23, 2010)

“The action in Personal Demons is nonstop, making this a book that is impossible to put down. And while the plot is fantastic (biblical brothers Cain and Abel make an appearance!), it never ceases to be believable.”

~ Meli Yoroshiku, Destroy The Brain! (December 2010)
