"It has a real, tangible sense of menace and the inexplicable, and it works well on just about every level. A damn fine read." -- Simon Maginn, author of SHEEP

1- CRADLE OF THE DEAD: On a bleak Christmas Eve, Paul Wren assists his associate with kidnapping and delivering a gangland rival to his place of execution: Alderville, an isolated and abandoned hospital. When Wren arrives, he discovers that what seemed like a simple murder contract is something far more horrifying. The forsaken structure's history is fraught with unimaginable evil, and tonight's most dangerous forces hail from a different kind of underworld. Killers come in many shades, and the darkest of them rise from beyond the grave.

2- DARK WAVES: There are those who believe that science can explain everything. John Stedman is such a man. As a sound engineer, he uses his expertise in subsonic resonance to debunk hauntings, and pursues the task with a missionary zeal. In the lead up to the launch of his book on the subject, he accepts a challenge from a journalist to investigate a particularly powerful haunting at The Dawlish Inn, a 15th Century tavern situated on the south coast of England. John is all set for a pleasant weekend in the country, good food, local ale, and interesting company. But beneath the cosy bar and gourmet restaurant, down in the ancient cellar of the inn, something is waiting for him, something his science can not easily explain, an encounter that will change his world forever.

"First things first: Dark Waves is unsettling." -- Booksquawk

"This book has a great tone throughout and it's a rewarding slow burn. By slow burn I certainly don't mean boring, just that it's tense and builds steadily. Creepiness and subtlety are the order of the day for this book." -- The Books of Blood

"I lingered, reading and re-reading the descriptions and details of the inn far longer than any normal person probably would have done." -- The Horror Fiction Review
