On his 18th Birthday, Johnny Petrie discovers he was adopted when he inherits a farm in Maine, abandoned for the 18 years since his natural family dies at the hands of his father, the local preacher. Eager for a new life, he leaves his current life behind to start over in his new home. Soon, as he unearths the dark secrets of his father’s past, he revives the evil forces trapped in the home, and sets in motion a series of events that continue the rituals his father began all those years ago that claimed the lives of his family.
“Dead Souls is creepy, atmospheric, and explosive–keep a light on and a gun loaded when you crack this baby. Another outstanding thriller from Michael Laimo.” — Douglas Preston, author of Monster of Florence
