Summary

Jake Helman, an elite member of the New York Special Homicide Task Force, faces what every cop dreads: an elusive serial killer. While investigating a series of bloodletting sacrifice rituals executed by an ominous perpetrator known as the Cipher, Jake refuses to submit to a drug test and resigns from the police department. While battling a cocaine addiction, Jake starts a high-pressure position as the director of security at Tower International, a controversial genetic-engineering company.

Beneath the polished exterior of the corporate identity and the CEO who has a reputation as the frontiersman on the cutting edge of science is a deranged mind. As Jake delves deeper into this frightening laboratory, he discovers much more than unethical practices performed in the name of human progress. Sequestered in rooms veiled in secrecy is the worst crime the world will ever see - the theft of the human soul.

Horrifying and gruesome, this is a gripping, suspense-filled novel that offers intense arguments about science, ethics, and human life.

Critic reviews

"Lamberson’s ability to twist a scenario and offer up descriptive, shiver-inducing murders makes Personal Demons a gripping must-finish." (Rue Morgue)

Impressive "Genre Blending" Debut!

I like Horror, I like Urban Fantasy and I like Detective Stories. This book is a highly stylized blend of my three favorite genres but at it's core it remains a Horror story(mostly). I really like the protagonist's(Jake Helman) "never say die" attitude - he gets his ass kicked throughout the entire story and his whole world goes to sh*t but he keeps on fighting. The story has a good "flow" to it and the supporting characters are well constructed. I though the narrator did a fantastic job with the voicing. This is one of the more original stories I've heard from Audible. As far as "book 1's" go I am impressed enough "Personal Demons" to move onto book 2 in the series with no hesitation. Listen to the "sampler" and see if you like it.

A bit far fetched near the end

I enjoyed this book, a bit of a twist on the usual detective story. Towards the end I did feel there were a few twists too many, particularly the demise of one baddy but overall an entertaining read. Not for those who like the more traditional detective story.
