"Conjuring ancient secrets, and with a body count that is out of this world, Ragman blends history and myth in a gritty procedural that severs bone and sears skin. Outstanding.” - Lee Murray, USA Today Bestselling author and four-time Bram Stoker Award® winner
“If ever there was a cautionary tale about not robbing temples, this is it. The spiritual rage of ancient Egypt catches up with modern America in a complex, dazzling, bloodthirsty epic of demonic revenge. Hold on to your heads!”- Graham Masterton
In 1882, a group of British soldiers plunder an Egyptian temple and kill the high priest. The priest vows revenge, and is finally revived in the present day. He finds the great-grandson of the man who killed him, but they form an uneasy partnership to get back all the stolen artifacts and send all the descendants of the other soldiers to the Underworld. Two police officers, former partners who had a falling out, must put aside their differences as they go from trying to solve gruesome, unexplained murders to risking their lives to stop the supernatural mummy the priest has called forth.
A Note From the Publisher
A lifelong fan of horror and science fiction, as a young boy he cut his teeth on everything from The Hardy Boys, Dracula, and Star Trek to textbooks on herpetology and paleontology. His varied professional career includes working as a resume writer, laboratory manager, accident scene photographer, zoo keeper, research scientist, and salesman. He writes adult and YA dark fiction/sci-fi/fantasy, and his works range from quiet suspense to over-the-top comic gruesomeness. He grew up enthralled with the horror movies and books of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, and as a child his favorite playground was an abandoned cemetery, which many people feel explains all you need to know about him.
He is a member of the Horror Writers Association (HWA), Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA), International Thriller Writers (ITW), and Mystery Writers of America (MWA). He currently oversees the HWA’s Library & Literacy Program, sits on the Board of Trustees, and was recognized as the 2018 Mentor of the Year. His influences range from Mary Shelley, Jules Verne, and Tales from the Crypt comics to Stephen King, Karl Edward Wagner, and Robert McCammon.
