Some places are doomed to be haunted . . .
Twenty-eight-year-old Kane Pryce used to have one of the strangest jobs in the world--capturing and exorcising spirits from people's lives. After the stress of the job finally got to him, he left ghost hunting and has been busy reinventing himself as the lead guitarist of a band on the brink of success. But it isn't long before Kane is asked to investigate a case involving Pasadena's infamous Suicide Bridge, and gets sucked back into the supernatural realm. A mysterious force is luring hopeless victims to their death off the bridge, and Kane must discover what power is keeping the lost souls trapped there.
As Kane uncovers the sinister, deadly secrets of the bridge, he spirals into the dangerous, shadowy world of the occult--the seedy underground world of the Hollywood music scene, tumultuous romances, and maddening journeys into the shattered minds of suicide victims. With the Soul Trap as his only defense, Kane must combat evil supernatural forces on a spiritual battlefield, a place between life and death, where the fate of his own soul hangs in the balance.
“This is a wild twist of supernatural and rock 'n' roll, with crazy cultists, doomed ghosts, ultimate evil and the crazy rise and fall of rock and roll bands. With a jarring pace like a speed metal song, this one will keep you racing along until the last, breathless page.”
“An exhilarating urban fantasy.”
“A thought-provoking plot, Devil’s Gate is more than a battle between good vs. evil. It’s first class writing and the characters are unforgettable beyond the last page, as even the bridge and surrounding area practically become characters unto themselves. Lennon keeps the door wide open for the exceptional series and the in-depth duo to continue forward for the foreseeable future. I, for one, will be waiting.”
