Description

WHEN EVIL PULLS YOU BACK TO THE HELL YOU THOUGHT YOU'D ESCAPED. 

From critically acclaimed Michele W. Miller comes a “superbly written tale of urban survivors fighting to save themselves once more” (Publishers Weekly).

As New York City’s crack epidemic rages, Raven has overcome her addiction and will soon begin law school. But night terrors begin to haunt her and her friends. Many of them return to drug use, disappear, or commit bizarre acts of violence. A mysterious new drug epidemic grips the city, while police corruption, a U.S. attorney campaigning for mayor, and riots hamstring the city’s defense. Raven and her friends—along with a journalist trying to help a teenage prostitute—must stand up to the sadistic man behind the chaos or lose all they’ve gained. Yet, as recovering addicts, they are the most vulnerable to his inexplicably attractive powers.

A gripping reimagining of the early 1990s, THE LOWER POWER combines the supernatural and social history for fans of Whitley Strieber’s The Wolfen and Gabino Iglesias’s The Devil Takes You Home.

“Consistently thrilling and immersive… impeccably drawn setting… A gritty, action-packed thriller anchored by a heroic duo worth cheering for.” —Kirkus Reviews

"Superbly written"Publishers Weekly

"The Lower Power is one scream-out-loud, terrifying read. An apocalyptic yarn as original and harrowing as Stephen King's The Stand... deeply moving." —Jamie Brickhouse, author of Dangerous When Wet: A Memoir of Booze, Sex, and My Mother

“Whether from the viewpoint of a recovering or hopelessly lost addict, a concerned policeman, a relentless journalist or the other citizens of New York that live and breathe within the pages of Michele W. Miller's The Lower Power, the writing never delivers less than rich characters or a story of increasing urgency. This is a harsh but necessary novel of crime and addiction and violence, and the effects they have on those who are powerless...and the beauty in power being discovered." —E.A. Aymar, author of No Home for Killers and When She Left

“Michele W. Miller has lived more lives than a cat, and they’ve made her a writer of passion and substance.” —Lawrence Block, Edgar Award winner and New York Times best-selling author
