About Waking Gods

In this ultimate chapter of the non-linear trilogy The Enigma of Twilight Falls we meet Adrian Foster, a young and reclusive Los Angeles man with an extraordinary gift that has informally brought him the nickname “The Human Master Key.”

When a new victim of a vicious serial killer turns up in the woods by Twilight Falls, California, Adrian reunites with eccentric detective Derek Adams in probing the occult lore surrounding the town — the town in which Adrian was born and raised, the town in which he left behind many a ghost, the town whose dark central spirit will force him on a harrowing journey through the rugged bottomlands of another’s psyche … as well as his own.

Waking Gods completes the terrifying and surreal panorama previously established by The Green-Eyed Monster and Negative Space
