January, 1930 - Chicago
Something evil stalks the streets performing human sacrifices every new moon.
The police are baffled. High society wants it covered up. The mob wants the murder weapon.
Fearing the involvement of a long time parishioner, aging priest Father Burke turns to a man he once thought possessed.
Private detective Thomas Gunn, tormented by visions he cannot control, takes the case only to discover that staring down the business end of a Tommy gun is nothing compared to stopping an ancient evil bent on world destruction.
In the tradition of H. P. Lovecraft and Dashel Hammitt, The New Moon Murders is a classic hard-boiled detective story fused with the elements of star-spanning horror.
H.P. Hammit or Dashel Lovecraft?
I'm fond of any book that takes a traditional genre and puts an interesting spin into it. This one is no exception and I will be happy to know when the sequels come out. Worth every penny.
