After the Devil

Writing has always been a dream of Alex Alpine’s. After a run with self-publishing leaves her short of her dream of becoming a bestselling author, she decides to quit. Jamie Knox, a recovered addict, can’t bring himself to accept her decision.
After a fight with her husband, Alex finds herself face to face with a seemingly charming man from out of town. The next thing she knows, she’s tied up in his basement. Kidnapped and trapped in Jamie’s house in the middle of the woods, Alex yearns for her freedom. The dead body keeping her company makes the need stronger.
As her captivity extends from weeks to months, Jamie becomes more to Alex than just the man who ripped her from her family. He becomes her friend and confidant. Torn between her duties to the daughter she left behind, and the life that Jamie’s made for her, Alex must figure out where her true priorities lie. To do so, she must dive into not only her own past traumas but Jamie’s as well.

cover

“Reminiscent of Hitchcock’s The Birds”

A cautionary tale about the consequences of environmental pollution…


They are part of our daily lives. We watch them from our kitchen windows and backyard decks as they scurry over the branches of our tall oak trees. We laugh at their antics as they furiously bury and unbury their precious acorns. Yes, they are part of our lives and, though, sometimes a nuisance, we generally enjoy and tolerate them.

>>>But what happens when something goes wrong?

What happens if some outside force causes their DNA to explode, creating a whole new species? What happens when that species begins to distrust and fear humans?

Brooke Davis, her daughter, Tessa, and their intrepid dog, Petey, are about to find out.

The Night of the Sciurus, A Western Michigan Tale of Terror is a story of environmental horror by multi-award-winning and USA Today bestselling author, Linda Watkins.
