Would you recognize the Devil if you met him?
Surviving an abusive relationship, Jenny Deville is dealing with the pain of her past. Noticing a sudden change in her son’s behavior, and his horrifying drawings of murders no child should ever witness, she must decide if her abusive ex-husband is the cause.
Supernatural events begin to transpire with all signs leading to the town’s prison and its poisonous past. With children mysteriously disappearing from the community, Jenny has little time to prove he’s the killer before her son becomes his next victim.
A decaying prison hides a dark secret. Robert Deville, the youngest prison warden in the history of the state, never expected to feel a supernatural connection with a prison. After discovering a diary, Robert learns a prisoner, thought to be the Devil, was hidden away under his feet.
Was this prisoner responsible for a fire that killed hundreds of prisoners? Did he play a part in the murder of a local family years earlier? Robert must learn the prisoner’s true identity and unravel his mystery. Why hasn’t he aged in decades? Was the prisoner locked away for his protection or ours?
