Publisher's Summary

Ford Atticus Ford, former lead ghost hunter on the hit paranormal reality show Graveyard: Classified, has more than a few regrets - especially after young Chelsea Hopper was attacked by a demon . . . on live television. 

Assisting police departments by conducting paranormal investigations and uncovering buried clues now provides him with an ounce of redemption, but it will never be enough. 

What occurred on that long-ago Halloween night was unforgivable, and Ford, chasing ratings and stardom, let it happen. 

With Graveyard cancelled and his reputation destroyed, Ford sets out to avenge little Chelsea, and save his own soul - if he can.

Loved the entire series

Loved that this series used the real way to get ghosts and demons to behave. There is no other way. You will see.

Liked the book; loved the narrator

This book was pretty good. I felt that the characters were well developed. We got to see their strengths and their flaws which made them seem real. I loved Mr. May's voicing of Mike. He made him sound like Matthew McConnaughey and I love Matthew McConnaughey's voice! I would recommend this book.

GREAT START!👍

I absolutely loved this new book, and look forward to listening to the complete series. The characters and story are well defined. Desmond Doane has truly been blessed with the talent of writing and his storytelling. I am enamored with this story. And, about Daniel Thomas May, his narration and voice acting of each character I can only say one word, SUPERB.☆☆☆☆☆☆ If your looking for a Scary, Spooky, Creepy, with just a little touch of humor, I recommend you start here.🙂

GOOD START

Very well read by Daniel Thomas May. Good book . I was totally engrossed. The protagonist, Ford is an interesting character. He is psychic and has the ability to see through the veil and talk to ghosts. Very intriguing and at times frightening too. I would like to continue this series and I hope Bk1 will
come out soon .

Excellent!


First off, the narration by Daniel Thomas May is an absolute compliment to the novel! His creepy Right Hand voices gave me the chills.

Desmond Doane's writing is superb. Humor, description, characterization, plot are seamless. It feels so real, like you are sitting in a booth across from Ford Atticus Ford, listening to his horrific tale of how he pursued an unholy presence in a quest to right a terrible wrong. I wish this was a movie!

The Dark Man shares the best elements of The Conjuring series. Characters I care about in crisis against impossible odds. Mentions of the Bible, using faith as a shield against demonic forces, are written believably and respectfully. That happens too infrequently these days.

Desmond Doane is now on my Favorite Horror Author shelves. The best part for me, this is a series rather than a standalone. I'm buying the boxset of Graveyard Classified and am creating a collection for the author on my Paperwhite. Please continue to release the rest of the trilogy in audio!
