The book is very well written, with most excellent development of characters. Any wife will instantly sympathize with Sam Travis' wife, and any father will fear for Sam's daughter. It is a chillingly viable scenario if one dabbles in the occult. I have studied it and have found out that demons can be hereditary. That in itself is chilling.
I appreciate the way Mike underscores the way humans open themselves up to the paranormal when they don't know any better, and even when they do. We humans are driven to do things that under normal circumstances and normal stress levels we'd never even consider. Coupled with our deep-seated desire to understand and to find answers, we are perfect targets for Satan and his minions.
I give this novel 4 stars out of 5 stars.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Sam Travis lives in a Civil War era farmhouse in Gettysburg, PA, where he awakens one morning to find an old journal with an entry by a Union soldier, Lt. Whiting…written in Sam’s own handwriting. When this happens several more times, both at night and during waking “trances,” Sam begins to question his own sanity while becoming obsessed with Lt. Whiting and his bone-chilling journal entries. As the entries begin to mimic Sam’s own life, he is drawn into an evil plot that could cost many lives, including his own.
Can the unconditional love of Sam's daughter, Eva, break through his hardened heart before a killer on the loose catches up with them and Sam’s past spurs him to do the unthinkable?
