A DOOR OPENED WIDE INTO MADNESS
Within each of us,
there is darkness; a piece of our souls, we’d like to forget. Though
we fight it, and deny it, and try to suppress it, this part of our
selves, remains. And there are things out there, things which speak
to this darkness within us…which feed, upon us...
A ghastly shooting
leads tabloid reporter Justin Barrett to the small town of Johnston
City, Illinois, where an appalling evil has already claimed
twenty-two people. Two young boys are responsible for the carnage,
“normal” kids who became brutal murderers. Justin Barrett wants to
be the first reporter to find out why.
Timmy Rice and
Colin Bolander seemed like any other eighth grade kids from the
Midwest. Their story had all of the elements a good tabloid reporter
looks for, and Justin Barrett was not about to let this one get
away. But as imprisoned Timmy Rice begins to tell his tale, Justin
finds himself drawn unwittingly into a dark abyss of terrifying
malevolence he cannot escape.
An ancient evil
lies at the heart of Timmy’s and Colin’s crimes, a living darkness
intent on more than mere brutal murder. As the darkness manipulates
the boys into performing its bloody deeds, Timmy’s older brother
Sean and the ghost of his dead little sister Carla, become entangled
in the web of horror, treachery, and death the darkness has
fashioned to serve its own terrifying ends. And Justin Barrett
discovers he too is trapped within this dark web, helplessly
snarled, hopelessly lost...
And Darkness Comes is a frightening look into the human soul, a supernatural and
psychological journey through the darkness, and light, which exists
within us all.
