Fresh off the success of his novel Cane River: A Ghost Story, our own resident spooky guy, Scott A. Johnson, unleashes his latest, City of Demons, on the world. Set in Houston, the book is a blood-soaked tale of a cop tracking a serial killer.
From the press release:
When a series of gruesome murders begin occurring in Houston, Texas, a burned-out cop who is on psychological leave sees eerie similarities to killings that happened before. Cursed with the ability to relive the last few moments of victims’ lives, he races to stop the butchery before the city’s gutters are flooded with blood.
Sound good? Well, if that’s not enough, check this out: Five-time Stoker Award-winning author Gary A. Braunbeck wrote the introduction and had this to say:
“What you hold in your hands is, in my opinion, an almost perfect horror novel; and the only reason I qualify it with the “almost” is because Johnson hasn’t written his next one yet.”

Sold. We’ll get a review of it up ASAP.
