Book Description

An ancient evil has awakened . . .

Police Chief Dexter Lowe enjoys his humdrum job in the sleepy little town of Gator Creek, Florida, until a kidnapper begins terrorizing the local women. FBI Special Agent Teddi McCoy arrives to help him hunt down the mysterious kidnapper. After failing to secure any leads, they are forced to recruit the FBI’s ace-in-the-hole psychic from the Louisiana Bayou, Jackson “Swamp Jack” LaFevre.

Aided by the eccentric LaFevre’s remarkable visions, they track the kidnapper to an isolated island on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades. A key with an eerie and violent past. Demon Key. A place where the kidnapper’s victims have mysteriously vanished. Forever.

As they finally discover, the kidnapper is the least of their problems when the key reveals its greatest horror . . . a sinister creature so powerful and vile that Gator Creek’s only hope of survival . . . must come from the past.

about Demon Key . . .

"Things are different in Florida and David Brookover shows why. What is found on the island is . . . sinister. The style of writing is much like James Patterson with its short chapters and pacing. The characters are realistic with dialogue that crackles." - Midwest Book Review

about David Brookover . . .

“Brookover excels at writing tense scenes that pull the reader through – and his rich, fast-moving intricate plots only help this.” – Writer’s Digest

Take some ancient conjurings, a curse, some ESP, prehistoric creatures, and throw in some magic, and you have this story. And of course the FBI for good measure. This was an entertaining, make believe book and will stir up the imagination of its readers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother. August 31, 2008
The cover brags, "Like reading Stephen King or Dean Koontz. - Midwest Review", but there is not much reminiscent of either King or Koontz in this book. The characters are flat and uncompelling. The dialogue is trite. One wonders who did the proofreading, since misspellings,wrong tenses and incorrect word use abound. [A character at one point "peddles backward" (back-pedals?) and another observes a "tortuous device" (torture device?).] The plot attempts to speed along via very short chapters and lots of exclamation points, but ultimately this style caused me to quit reading about halfway through. I turned it off like a bad TV show (which it very much resembles.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but not too bad either. December 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a soft spot for creature features, and 'dinosaurs' are one of my absolute favorite creatures. This book provides plenty of that.

It's not a great book, and I don't ever see it becoming a best seller of any sort, but it was engaging enough for me to finish it and then go ahead order the kindle version of the two sequels that follow.

What I liked about the book:

The characters were engaging, the plot was interesting (enough), and of course, there were dinosaurs.... and something else.

What I didn't like:

Well, saying I didn't like it is rather strong, but there were several things that took me out of the story. There are numerous typos and grammatical errors, and an over-abundant use of exclamation points. These 'literally' took me out of the story on many occasions, which I found rather disconcerting and annoying, but I was able to get right back into it quickly.

As for the characters... Jackson struck me as very much a Marty Sue character. At one point he shows that he knows martial arts, but then never again uses it in fights where he would instinctively done so; then there was the cat-whisperer moment.... He is also very similar to another character from a pair of well-known authors, though not as well done. Hopefully, that's a bad habit that he won't find hard to break. Teddi, while likeable, struck me as rather... wishy-washy a lot of the time. I was getting whiplash from her going from tough, take-charge FBI agent to helpless damsel in distress mode rather quickly and frequently. Dex was the most interesting character, though for a small town cop, he sure expands his jurisdiction rather widely. As for the big-bad of the book, he seemed rather one-dimensional and totally Dan-Browned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Larry Stu All Over September 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this book. I wanted to like this author. I wanted a lot of things in my life like being independently wealthy, a masterful eye for fine arts, a ten inch sexual organ... I have found my way through many disappointments but I have never felt so disappointed in myself for making it to the 50% mark.

What I thought would get better, didn't. One main character, Dex Lowe is an actual fleshed out character that doesn't necessarily "do it all". Then Teddi McCoy, pithy, flippant, super-upset with her ex-fiance-husband thing; FBI agent with the emotional maturity of a spurned fouteen year old. She at least didn't know how to do it all. Or know it all.

Then it comes to Psychic Jackosn "MacBuffn'stuff-Duddly-Do-Everything" LeFèvre. The most one dimensional character I've ever read. Not only does the FBI have a psychic on retainer, he also has a TARDIS shack on stilts int he middle of the Louisianan bayou... You know the like. Visible day light through poorly maintained slats in the walls, clearly 8'x8', yet inside everything is pristine sanitized surfaces, with giant flat-screen TVs, fireplaces, etc. Think of a James Bond Villain hideout, then go from there.

The character is first described as ruggedly handsome, shoulder length blond hair and wearing a bright white Safari Outfit. Think of /literally/ the 'Great White Hunter'. Not only does he have the ear of a higher up in the FBI, he also has tactical combat training and is psychic; an empath; knows the ins-and-outs of South American Drug Lord tactics; knows Portuguese; can see through the eyes of a Jaguar... and damned if by the time he stared self-same Jaguar into a healthy placated sleep I gave up in the book.

Absolutely awesome. I live in South Florida and could not put it down. I have bought two more books and they both live up to my expectations. Anyone who loves a really good thriller definitely needs to read this one.

About Me and My Books:

Check out the new video book trailer for "CREATURES - TEDDI MCCOY NOVEL". I think it's my best one yet! I hope it tantalizes you enough to read the book. It's currently selling well in 8 different countries! Thank you World!.

The new Teddi McCoy horror thriller, "Creatures: Teddi McCoy Novel", is out NOW as of July 1, 2013. MY bestselling character returns to match wits with a seductive voodoo witch, bloodthirsty fiends, AND lethal mountain traps. When Dex Lowe is abducted by violent creatures at his Florida home, FBI Supervisor Teddi McCoy teams with her professional and romantic partner, Swamp Jack LaFevre, in the race against time to save his life!

Their quest leads them to a mysterious Mexican jungle mountain range and the secret to the strange disappearance of over 300,000 Olmec people 2,400 years ago! But Dex's life isn't the only one in jeopardy. The CREATURES plan to destroy Earth, and it's up to Teddi and Swamp Jack to stop them. The clock is ticking...

Check out the video trailer for my thriller, GHOSTWORLD and see why so many readers love this horror-mystery story!

Several of my readers asked me last week at a book signing if my stories are mysteries, too. I gave them a resounding YES! Each of my series characters is an investigator with a frightening crime to solve. All my books are a combination of HORROR, SUSPENSE, and MYSTERY!

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH CHARACTER YOU WANT ME TO WRITE ABOUT NEXT. I'm currently finishing the edits for the upcoming Teddi McCoy and "Swamp Jack" LaFevre thriller called CREATURES, which is being published and released in July, 2013. In April, I'm beginning a new book, and I want you to let me know whether you want it to be another Teddi McCoy novel ("Blood Eyes"). . . or another Nick Bellamy novel ("Terror Island"). Both are ready to go, but I can only write one at a time! So "FRIEND" ME on FACEBOOK AND ADVISE ME of YOUR OPINION, PLEASE!

I wish you all a fabulously healthy, wealthy, and FUN 2013! Thirteen is my lucky number because . . . I was born on Friday the 13th!!! The new Teddi McCoy, Dex, and Swamp Jack novel, Creatures, will be published in June, 2013! Stay tuned!

GHOSTWORLD is my latest supernatural thriller. It's chock full of modern-day werewolves, vampires, sorcerers, and demons. Action. Chills. Suspense. A kiss of romance. All rolled up into GHOSTWORLD. My BRAND NEW CHARACTER, the wise-cracking JOE LUNA, is a Florida contract agent for the DoJ's Department of Supernatural Investigations (DSI), and boy is he up to his neck in trouble with Orlando's newest theme park, GHOSTWORLD! Did I mention that Joe Luna is a SORWOLF? He's half werewolf and half sorcerer ... and ALL bad. GHOSTWORLD is a fun and exciting chiller thriller, so check it out. It's AVAILABLE NOW!

I personally traveled to Scotland to research The Fossil (I have a Scottish grandmother and an Irish grandmother!), which is based on an actual Scottish myth. You've never seen vampires like the ones roaming The Fossil! I think that you'll really enjoy it!

Check out my books and trailers here or become a "Friend" on Facebook. Happy nightmares:)
