A mother’s love is undying… and so is Dane.
After the state of Arkansas executes serial killer Dane Peters, the Rest Stop Dentist, his mother discovers that life is darker and more dangerous than she ever expected.
The driving force behind his ghostly return lies buried in his family’s dark past. As Ella desperately seeks a way to lay her son’s troubled soul to rest, she comes face to face with her own failings.
If Ella cannot learn why her son has returned and what he seeks, then the reach of his power will destroy the innocent, and not even his mother will be able to stop him.

Brutal, heartfelt, and relentless.
My favorite character was Sven, as he was the sane(er) of the characters and kept driving things forward.
I haven't, though I'm currently working through one. Her performance is great here, so I don't expect it to be much different though I suppose publication date would allow inference of progress or not. She just handled a variety of characters and emotions to a high degree.
I kind of thought about life more than I normally would during a story. I had the same kind or reaction to Edward Lorn's other story Bay's End. He does a good job of writing relatable characters and then putting them through hell. I'm not sure if it was extreme, but it definitely made me think.
I will continue reading anything Edward Lorn writes that I can get my hands on, I suggest anyone reading this do the same.
I am an avid reader and listener of horror and thrillers with the occasional SciFi and crime noir. I review on Amazon, GR, NG & Audible.
“He’s not a monster. He’s my son.” Keep telling yourself that, lady. You helped make him that way. No worries though, the teeth will lead you home. Unfortunately for you…it may be Dane’s house now. Fug.
LAD is classic E. Fast moving and brutal. I should have been able to see the ending coming, but I didn’t. That is a testament to Lorn’s ability to keep you off balance and entirely engaged in the story from beginning to end. Very well done. Emotionally violent and disturbing. 5 Stars and Highly Recommended!
This book was awful. It was so disgusting I couldn't even finish it. It was horrifying and horrible, filled will disturbing imagery that did nothing to advance the plot. When it got to the cat I simply gave up. There is no need to read this stuff.
