"The Color of Evil is old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists. Not only won't you see this coming, you won't believe your eyes when it does. Brava!" (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Best-selling author of Dust & Decay and Dead of Night and mutiple Bram Stoker award winner.)
"Connie Corcoran Wilson is a born storyteller! Her new novel The Color of Evil is a real page-turner, and a very good one, indeed! Wilson, in this, her second novel (and the first in a trilogy), takes time with each character and handles them quite well...The reader is kept informed and fascinated. It all works. It moves the story forward, scene-by-scene, in a controlled way. The Color of Evil is total entertainment. Wilson's got a winner here!" (William F. Nolan, Logan's Run and Nightworlds, Living Legend in Dark Fantasy).
"The Color of Evil is the kind of read that grabs you by the lapels and doesn't let go until much mayhem has ensued and the tightly-coiled plot has unwound. Wilson keeps the reader engaged and on edge as this story of a 'a small-town gone wild' plays out in horrific detail. Make sure you lock the doors and windows before starting, because you won't want to get up and check until you have finished this one!" (Donnie Light, Dark Justice and Ripper's Row)
