The devil is in the details in a new horror novel written in the vein of The Shinning, Interview with the Vampire, and The Silence of the Lambs. Horror author PD Alleva unveils his newest creation, horror novel, Golem, a haunting tale of suspense, terror, isolation, and fear.
Early reviews are boasting the story as, “the best I’ve read in a very long time;” “PD Alleva unfolds that kind of psychological horror that gets into your mind like a dark thought you can’t control,” “a mix of traditional horror and some very thorny twists…I am super in the mood now for Halloween;” and “excellently written, with a twisted, spiralling, unexpected end that will leave you speechless,” cementing Golem as the must read horror novel of the season.
According to the publisher, “Golem is a tour de force of classic and gothic horror. The story stands by itself as a return to the horror genre’s traditional roots, both psychological and horrifying, but with a modern day twist in storytelling that is sure to have readers talking, especially after reading such a profound and mystifying conclusion. We are confident the story will appeal to horror readers and readers in the thriller, paranormal, and supernatural genres, and pretty much anyone who enjoys a damn good story.”
So, what’s this Golem story all about? Here’s the long and short of it:
On November 1, 1951, war hero John Ashton was promoted to detective in the NYPD’s missing person’s unit. His first assignment: find the district attorney’s missing daughter. But his only lead is Alena Francon, a high society sculptor and socialite committed to Bellevue’s psychiatric facility.
Alena has a story for the new detective. A story so outlandish John Ashton refuses to heed the warning. Alena admits to incarnating Golem, a demonic force, into her statue. A devil so profound he’s infiltrated every part of New York’s infrastructure. Even worse, he uses children to serve as bodily hosts for his demonic army, unleashing a horde of devils into our world.
When Alena’s confidant, Annette Flemming, confirms the existence of Golem, John is sent on a collision course where fate and destiny spiral into peril, and the future of the human race hangs in the balance.
