About This Book
Overview

The sign on Jake Helman’s office door says Private Investigator, but this ex-cop’s profession is more complicated than spying on cheating spouses. Over the course of two years, Jake has battled demons, zombies, even a cosmic monster—and he has paid dearly, both physically and emotionally, for his exploits.

Now on a quest to save his best friend’s soul, Jake embarks on his greatest and most terrifying odyssey yet: from the streets of New Orleans to the nightclubs of Miami to the jungles of Pavot Island, where undead slaves harvest narcotics for a ferocious dictator.

But this time Jake isn’t alone. Maria Vasquez, a beautiful NYPD homicide detective, joins him to rescue her former partner. With no backup and limited resources, Jake and Maria battle voodoo overlords, military troops, and an army of zombies. What will prove deadlier to Jake: the addictive drug called Black Magic, the return of an old enemy, or a vengeful demon plotting against him? Tortured Spirits is an action-packed, gore-soaked, supernatural thrill ride that will leave horror fans gasping for Jake Helman’s return.

“The fourth installment in Lamberson’s Jake Helman Files (after 2011’s Cosmic Forces) is an action-packed blend of hard-boiled urban fantasy and pulpy horror.”

~ Publishers Weekly (August 27, 2012)

“Another deft mixture of private-eye and horror themes, and, as with Desperate Souls, Lamberson grounds the story in reality by focusing on Jake’s own personal journey into darkness as he struggles to save his best friend.”

— David Pitt, Booklist (October 31, 2012)

“The fourth installment in Lamberson's Jake Helman Files is, for lack of a better word, simply epic. (It is strongly suggested you catch up on the series for maximum effect, but newcomers shouldn't be too lost).”

~ The Horror Fiction Review
