Meet Rad Sanders, the most terrifying serial killer you will ever encounter, in a thriller unlike any you have ever read…
Lu Jakes lives with her alcoholic father and abusive stepmother, Norlene, at Hidden Creek Lodge in the Utah mountains. When the beautiful Lisa is sent by her protective parents to stay at the lodge for the summer, Lu makes her first real friend – dangerously unaware that Lisa’s is not the only new face at the resort.
For Lisa has been followed by Rad Sanders, a sadistic killer who has plans for the girls – sick plans that will drag them and their families to the very brink of hell. Rad stalks Lu and Lisa, waiting for his moment, certain that his deadly plan cannot fail.
But unknown to Rad, Lu has a secret. She can see things that nobody else can see: the spirit Talion and his companions. But are these spirits real or a trick of the mind? And will Lu’s special gift help her and Lisa as the killer closes in…
TALION is a gripping, intense tale of friendship, family and dark desires, that blends Thomas Harris with Stephen King. It is a book that will make you want to sleep with all the lights on – if you can sleep at all.
Rated R for adult language and scenes of disturbing violence.
“”Silence of the Lambs” meets “The Turn of the Screw” . . . . The story is propelled by suspense, and made delicious by Maddox’s Ray Bradbury-like gift for deft, deep-shadowed description.” –Charleston Times-Courier
