Waking Hours Publisher's Summary

All towns have secrets. Some have demons.

Welcome to East Salem. A sleepy town with a history older than America where the supernatural bleeds into the everyday. After a high school girl is found dead in the town park, forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris wants answers. All the suspects are teenagers who were at the party with her the night before - and even though the evidence confirms they were all at the scene of the crime they all woke up the next morning with the same story: no memory whatsoever of the murder. Former pro-football linebacker - and local celebrity - Tommy Gunderson finds himself drawn to the case. And to Dani - who he last spoke with on their one high school date. Yet his celebrity status opens doors barred to Dani - so they form a reluctant alliance.

They soon realize that there’s more to the mystery than murder. And more to the evil they are facing than a mere human killer.

    In East Salem, the elite St. Adrian's Academy is at the nexus of a satanic apocalypse - and the fatal tide is rising. When Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson's home - and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time…but for how long?
