Brace yourself for a harrowing journey of thrilling suspense as tragic, unexplainable events seem to point to a deadly future for the world. While on vacation, journalist Sandy Travis and her fiancé Tom are in a horrendous helicopter accident. Tom is seriously injured and has an N.D.E. — a near-death experience. After Tom is revived, he tells Sandy that he’s spoken to God. As it turns out, Tom is wrong. Horribly wrong.

Now Sandy is in a dangerous race to save her fiancé from dark forces that want to control his every action. She must follow a trail of coded secrets and targeted assassinations if she is to unveil the otherworldly cabal who uses the process of N.D.E. to orchestrate Armageddon.

Demon Days is a spellbinding tale of puzzles, prophecy and possession that will make you think twice about the world we live in. And the climax will leave you gasping for air.

Whispers about Demon Days

“[A] fresh and rich approach to the age-old battle between good and evil.” – Andrew Neiderman, author of The Devil’s Advocate

“By far and away, the best damned horror novel I’ve read in ages.” – Ray Garton, author of Live Girls and Bestial

“Inevitably, somebody will try to tell you this book is part The Da Vinci Code, part The Exorcist, but they will be doing Demon Days a grave disservice…Finney and Snell have reached beyond those beginnings and have given us a truly important modern horror story.” – Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Quarantined

When a series of man-made and natural disasters strike the USA, altruistic rock star Dante Benedick (aka “The One”) must travel back through time to rescue the world and the love of his life. He will have 168 hours to attempt to stop the suicide of Isabella Bellwood, the President’s daughter, which may alter the course of history and prevent the Great Destruction.

Whispers about Out of Time

“Let me start right off by saying that Connie Wilson presents what I call ‘matter-of-fact’ horror. She writes solid, declarative sentences rife with dark undertones. No fancy description for Connie. No sentimental musings. No soft emotionalism. Just hard-edged documentary-style storytelling. Jolting objective sentences made all the more disturbing by their cool directness. Frankly – and I consider myself well-read in the shock genre – I have never encountered a style such as she displays. Connie Wilson’s dark talent is unique, and readers will stagger away from her icy tales, stunned and groggy.” – William F. Nolan, Author of Logan’s Run and Nightworlds
