About This Book
Overview

Sean Mulcahy answered Uncle Sam’s call. In the autumn of 1917, he left his home, his friends, and the girl he loved. On the killing fields of the Western Front, he vanished without a trace.

Thirty years later his best friend Vince Sicario is a broken man. Split from his wife, run off the NYPD, his world swirls in the bottom of a bottle. Until Sean comes clawing at his door. Bleeding. Delirious. And looking not a single day older.

Vince turns to the only person he trusts, his wife Maggie – the woman Sean left behind three decades earlier. Together they hit the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, seeking answers to Sean’s disappearance … and mysterious return.

But others are on the same trail, and something terrible is lurking in the dark alleys and dirty corners of the West Side. Wise guys are disappearing. Mutilated corpses are turning up. The cops are baffled and gangsters are running scared. Rumors abound of strange gatherings in the shadows, of ancient horrors reborn, of blood feasts and pagan rites rekindled. Some say the savior of the damned has come.

Sean may be in terrible danger. Or the greatest danger of all.

The Lucifer Messiah.

"Think an acid-trip edition of NYPD Blue merged with the cult film society . . . Fans of monster-infested tales will enjoy the strange ones on display here, several who would fit perfectly in a Lovecraft story . . . Frank Cavallo has the potential to be one of the finest writers in their arsenal." ~ The Horror Fiction Review

Perfect 10! "Frank Cavallo cleverly uses creatures of myths and legends to further the tale as the audience wonders what is good and evil and who lines up where including the protagonist. Dark fantasy fans will cherish this urban thriller." ~ Book Crossing

"This is quite an unusual storyline and many authors would find it difficult to do it justice. Frank Cavallo, despite being a first-time author, manages to do so with great style and originality. Sometimes, when you read an author's first novel the writing style can feel a little nave. This is not the case with Cavallo he has written a compelling story that keeps you guessing until the very end.

This book promises even greater things to come from Frank Cavallo and I certainly look forward to reading more." ~ Lesley, EternalNight.co.uk
