Description

PRAYERS SOMETIMES LAND ON THE DEVIL'S EARS.

"Scars on the Face of God is a brilliant novel. Congratulations on hitting one out of the park..." -Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author and winner of multiple Bram Stoker Awards

The year is 1964. A construction project in the town of Three Bridges, Pennsylvania unearths an ancient sewer. Inside is a mystery dating to the 19th century: the hidden skeletons of countless infants.

As the secrets of Three Bridges begin to surface, an ancient codex is discovered in the attic of a local orphanage. A bible containing writings in Lucifer's own hand.

The parish priest and a church handyman set out to discover the truth. But a series of strange visions and horrifying tragedies begin, and the darkest secret of all becomes clear:

The town of Three Bridges is marked, and the Devil is coming out to play.

For fans of Stephen King and Stranger Things.
