Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A DEMON AWAITS

I love the ever changing dynamics of the characters from one book to the next. If you like thrillers with a great story line and intriguing characters, you'll love A Demon Awaits. --Reader Mom

I am amazed that you can take a character I hate and make me root for him. What genius and talent! --Pam

SIN AND VENGEANCE

...the book was spellbinding. The plotting is brilliant, and Randy is an exquisite character, an evil genius for the modern age. --Debra Hamel

C.J. West delivers, from the highly erotic opening scene to the chilling conclusion. Sin & Vengeance is a provocative page-turner brimming with intrigue and heart-pounding suspense. --Alynn

THE END OF MARKING TIME

... West has brilliantly portrayed a world gone crazy where the rule is there are no rules, or are they. Crime fiction meets science fiction in this awesome thriller." --Book Bitch

Powerful, thought provoking and massively entertaining... I loved this book and the way it made me root for someone who I knew I shouldn't like. --CrimeSquad.com

ADDICTED TO LOVE

This book had me so hooked. I loved the plot ... unique and creative [with] just the right about of romance, sexuality, thrills, mystery, and just plain crazy ... --Tiffany Harkleroad, Tiffany's Bookshelf

CJ's latest offering is a blend of the thrillers we come to expect from him and a new touch of romance, actually a little steamier than just any old romance, so I like to call it a "steamy thriller." --Roxanne



From the Author

A Demon Awaits could be the second half of my novel Sin And Vengeance. Unfortunately that book would be just too long. I strongly suggest reading these books in order to understand the magnitude of the transformation Randy Black undergoes.

If it has been a while since you read Sin And Vengeance, I suggest carefully reading the prologue, which is included to remind you what happened in the first book of the series.

More About the Author

Amazon Bestselling Author C.J. West's first novel, Sin And Vengeance, was adapted for film by award-winning screenwriter Marla Cukor, and optioned into development by Beantown Productions, LLC.

Edgar nominated author, Tim Hallinan says, "C.J. West is a powerful and original writer, and I look forward to reading him for a long time."

Vincent Zandri, author of The Innocent, says, "C.J. West is one of my favorite indie authors writing today."

Avid fans insist that any mystery or suspense lover who reads Sin And Vengeance and The End of Marking Time will become a C.J. West fan.

C.J.'s Randy Black series features Sin And Vengeance, A Demon Awaits, and Gretchen Greene. The series is unusual because Randy Black undergoes a major transformation in the second book. Many readers are amazed at how strongly they root for a character they despised.

The End of Marking Time provides a touch of sci-fi as Michael O'Connor navigates a criminal justice system that substitutes counselors and monitoring technology for prisons and guards. This intense psychological novel challenges readers to consider all they know about crime and justice.

For traditional mystery readers, C.J. offers the Lorado Martin Mystery Series about a junk man who splits his time between the worlds of antiques and collectibles and his work providing housing and jobs for recovering addicts. The first book in the series, Dinner At Deadman's was released in 2012.

Format: Paperback
A Demon Awaits is the second book in the Randy Black series written by ingenious storyteller, CJ West.

At the end of the first book, Sin and Vengeance, Randy Black found himself getting a spoonful of his own medicine as Murphy's Law once again proved itself trustworthy, ''Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.'' Things could have not gone worse for Randy, whose role changed suddenly and unexpectedly from hunter to prey with blood thirsty predators chasing him. Neither Randy nor the reader will be prepared for the outcome.

In this sequel, author CJ West mixes conspiracy, surveillance, power and manipulation of knowledge, fanaticism, and corruption in all levels of government to fold in the reader into the threshold of Randy Black's new dilemmas. The reader must decide to unmask the villains or to put on a masquerade as not to stand out in the crowd.

The book begins with an inside look at the events that caused Randy Black to be at the ICU in New Bedford Hospital in Westport, Massachusetts, with a cop guarding his room. He is a skillful and dangerous murderer who suffered numerous fractures and lays unconscious in bed with half of his body covered in plaster, his left arm suspended by two twisted cables, and his right arm cuffed to his bed. When Randy awakes, he is clueless about the length of time he has been in the ICU.

While at the hospital, he will meet a series of characters who will play key roles during the rest of the story. First he meets Detective Al Ruiz, a Westport Internal Affairs (IA) officer who is investigating the officer's alleged brutality and excessive force during Randy's arrest. Then comes Reverend Simmons, Pastor of the First Congregational Church in Westport.

Format: Paperback
What if you could see into the future? What if you could fathom your afterlife and the things it has in store for you? The mind-tingling question arises: Will I go to Heaven or will I end up in Hell?
Randy Black has seen it - both sides. Following his murder rampage to avenge his parent's bankruptcy and death, Randy almost loses his own life due to the beating he takes from an arresting police officer. The things Randy witnesses while unconscious range from the indescribable beauty of God's heavenly threshold to the utmost barbaric torture sinners will endure for all eternity.
In I.C.U., Randy awakes as a changed man. Handcuffed to his bed, he recalls the grueling images of Hell and decides to turn his life around, hoping it isn't too late. And that's where his real trouble begins: The more Randy tries to clean-up his ways, the deeper he slips into a labyrinth of crime. No matter which direction he turns for help; his attorney, the cops, and even the judge trying his case, Randy encounters manipulation, black-mail and distortion. With only one person to trust, a story-hungry reporter named Cassie, Randy soon finds himself entrapped in not just earthly dangers, but also the threat of God's Unforgiving.

With Randy Black, author CJ West created a strong character who takes us on a fast-paced journey of great mystery and suspense. We cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The story's plot and sub-plots spread over a vast variety of interests, beginning with the epilogue and it's wonderfully narrated glimpse of the afterlife, and ends with the beautiful tenderness of a romantic drama. West's skill of thrill dabbles with modern political and ethical topics which make A Demon Awaits an even more desirable read.

The first book was entertaining if a bit amateurish in spots. The second was so filled with religious propaganda that I trashed it after wasting about 45 minutes of my time reading it. Nothing would lead anyone to believe this was Christian literature. To each his own. I felt misled and cheated.

I have to say after reading Sin And Vengeance (Randy Black Series)I was doubtful of where the author could go; but he did an amazing job of finding another direction. This is an author who is developing as he continues to write and in my opinion keeps getting better. Although this book could probably stand alone, do yourself a favor and get all three. The third is Gretchen Greene (Randy Black Series)
For me they were all books I had a hard time taking a break from. I really got invested in the characters and wanted to find out what happened and enjoyed every minute.

A Demon Awaits is a fast moving thriller. I love the ever changing dynamics of the characters from one book to the next. If you like thrillers with a great story line and intriguing characters, you'll love A Demon Awaits, as well as the book before Sin and Vengence. I loved this book and read all three from the author CJ West. All of his books will keep you turning pages.
