Meet Yesheb al Tobbanoft: Rich. Handsome. Psychotic. Deadly.
Yesheb’s delusional voices whisper in his ear that he is the Beast of Babylon from Gabriella Carmichael’s novel about demons. So he turns up at a book-signing and then stalks her, determined to make her his bride—and to slaughter her son as a human sacrifice, a blood offering to seal their union.
Gabriella and her family run from the lunatic back through her memories to a childhood summer and a cabin called St. Elmo’s Fire–where she discovers that facing the demons from her past is as difficult and dangerous as escaping the one who stalks her. And where she encounters again the magic of a single perfect bristlecone pine tree that saved her life when she was eight years old.
When Yesheb shows up and corners his prey on the mountainside, the only thing that stands between Gabriella and the madness of a homicidal psychopath is the power of that tree.
A tree that maybe…just maybe…peeked out of the ground on a Colorado mountainside at the moment a man named Jesus breathed his last breath on another tree on the other side of the planet two thousand years ago.
Set against the backdrop of the majestic Rocky Mountains, award-winning suspense and thriller writer Ninie Hammon weaves a spell-binding story of insanity and terror—coupled with her characteristic dusting of the “unexplainable.” If you’re a fan of fast-paced action, tangled plots, believable characters and themes that will challenge some of your most cherished beliefs, don’t start this book at bedtime –or you could be in for an all-nighter.
