Coming June 21, 2020 from Eclectic Trio Press!
Bi-polar has ruined Detective Jenny Ashton’s life, but when she gets the chance to use the disease for good, she takes it, even though it leads her into a world that shouldn’t exist, filled with monsters of the very worst kind.
Something lurks within the dark alleyways of Parkton, preying upon the Gutterbreed forever trapped there. A naturally evolved predator, one the town itself doesn’t want – and one Ashton has already faced before.
Byron James knows these alleys and the Darkness they contain. He’s spent a lifetime walking them. A lifetime trying to escape. His skin is marked with the passage of his trespass – but he’s never encountered anything like this.
As Byron guides Ash deeper into insanity on the hunt for a killer, they discover far worse than Albert ‘Skinner’ Reynolds waiting for them in the dark. A growing nightmare festers in the shadows of Parkton, its madness eager for the real world.
Only Ash stands in its way – but is this a battle she’s willing to fight?
Early Praise for Gutterbreed“Gutterbreed is to my mind the definition of dark fiction. It takes a strong stomach to read, but you will be rewarded for your efforts, as the writing is filled with lyrical beauty. Employing his elegant style, the author manages to makes wrenching ugliness and utter despair gorgeous—no small feat.” 5 stars.
