Publisher's Summary

A small Maine city has turned into a killing ground. Is it a serial killer, someone with a penchant for the macabre and a need to destroy?
Or is it a darker force, an ancient legend from a mysterious Island come ashore to wreak havoc upon the unsuspecting?
Amid the backdrop of Portland’s burgeoning night scene, Police Lieutenant Rick Jennings discovers that no one is safe, and that evil has many faces.
Extended Description:
Danny Wolf, a gifted musician with alcohol problems is witnessing brutal murder in his dreams. Someone is carving a cross on each of the young female victims before crucifying them.
Newly released from prison for a crime he did not commit, Wolf is having trouble adjusting to civilian life. He believes the dreams are a symptom of his adjustment until he discovers that they are real and that the victims are his own groupies. He soon begins to doubt his sanity. Could he be a homicidal madman?
Wolf has no memory of his early childhood but discovers that he spent his first eight years in a Catholic orphanage on a mysterious island off the coast of Maine. Is it possible that his early life and the murders are somehow connected?
Soon the killings become more bold and gruesome, as members of the church begin to die.
Enter Police Lieutenant Rick Jennings and his young assistant Laura Higgins. They discover a government conspiracy involving the Catholic Church, and a cold war CIA mind control program known as MK-Ultra where children were used as test subjects.
Danny Wolf becomes the number one suspect in the murders, but no one, not even Wolf, is prepared for what they discover on Apocalypse Island, a mind blowing secret that was supposed to stay hidden forever.
Apocalypse Island is a fast-paced thriller that will keep you guessing until the shocking conclusion.

Critic Reviews

“Mark Edward Hall writes like a master. Stephen King, yes, but also like Stoker, Poe, and Bradbury, yeah, even Shakespeare...all those good guys we’veforgotten. His prose is hypnotic and seductive, visceral, and edgy. He’s the real thing.” (Kiana Davenport, New York Times Bestselling Author of Cannibal Nights and House of Skin)
“Poetic and eerily seductive, Hall pushes you to the edge, until you get lost in the beautiful madness of his creations.” ( Midwest Book Review)
“Hall has an uncanny knack for blending vivid, almost poetic prose with visceral images of jaw-dropping horror to great effect.” (Bram Stoker AwardWinning Editor, Vince Liaguno)

Great story idea, character dialogue is stilted

The idea of the story is very good but the dialogue between characters in the book seems a little stilted. I just can't imagine people in the real world talking to each other like that. Also, there seems to be some production quality issues early on in the recording. I swear I can hear some background noises like pages being turned in the first hour.

Despite all that this was a very enjoyable listen. While listening I kept imagining this book as a movie like The Crow. I look forward to listening to some other Mark Edward Hall books.
