THE COMPANY OF DEMONS
by Michael Jordan


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Thriller


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


The brutal murder of a friend leaves lawyer John Coleman stunned and sends shock waves through the city of Cleveland. The technique of the killing recalls memories of the Torso Murderer, who dismembered at least twelve people decades ago and vanished--eluding even the legendary Eliot Ness. Jennifer, the victim's beautiful daughter, hires John to handle her father's estate, and romantic feelings for her soon complicate his already troubled marriage. When John finds himself entangled with a cold-blooded biker gang, an ex-cop with a fuzzy past, and the drug-addicted son of the dead man, he struggles to make sense of it all. But he cannot escape a growing sense of dread.

EXCERPT:

A deep breath helped to calm me. Oyster’s death had brought an ugly past alive. Just as I’d been assuring everyone, though, there was nothing wrong. My main task for the day was to pick Molly up after school and hope that she wouldn’t be too disappointed when she learned that we wouldn’t be visiting the skateboard park. We would head straight home for a quiet, uneventful spaghetti dinner. Cathy would have polished and set the oaken table. We would talk of things other than serial killers. She would remind me of her upcoming birthday dinner, with her sister and brother-in-law. Her parents would stare down at us from faded color photographs arranged in thin wooden frames on checkered blue-and-white wallpaper. There were photographs of my mom, too, with her tight-lipped smile.

One photo of my father, handsome in a blue uniform, hung on the wall. Whenever Cathy said grace, my eyes would wander to the particular picture, and I would recall games of catch, walleye fishing on the lake, our hikes through the Metroparks. We’d wander the trails there most Saturday mornings, just my dad and me. Afterward, he’d take me to Pete’s Hotdogs on Lorain, and we’d gorge on dogs stuffed into steamed buns and topped with local Stadium mustard and greasy fried onions. Those were the memories I’d try to focus on.

But I could never, ever block out the rest.

AUTHOR Interview:

1. How did you come up with the title of your book or series? The Company of Demons refers not just to the serial killers who torment John Coleman, the protagonist. The title also signals the inner demons that Coleman must confront and overcome.

2. Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series: The fact that the Torso Killer was all too real, brutally killed at least twelve people, and eluded legendary detective Eliot Ness is absolutely a gripping bit of history. I don’t know if that qualifies as a ‘fun fact’, but it is certainly interesting!

3. How can we contact you or find out more about your books? My website, www.michaeljordanbooks.com, is updated regularly. I can also be contacted via email at: mj@michaeljordanbook.com.

4. What can we expect from you in the future? I am currently working on a WWII thriller, set in America during the closing stages of the war. Like my first book, it is based on historical events.

5. What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful? Word-of-mouth is invaluable. Beyond that, reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, and BookishFirst are helpful. Many potential buyers check at least one of those sites before making a purchase.
