Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A Demon Awaits is a stunning thriller that will have you turning pages to the end and then keep you talking for weeks to come. In Sin and Vengeance, CJ West creates Randy Black, a villain so insidious that we are tempted to hate him. Randy returns in A Demon Awaits and CJ challenges us to see the world through Randy's eyes and ask ourselves if we can forgive him. We see a transformation in these two books that makes them read more like a two-part novel than the genesis of a high-action series.

As we watch Randy struggle to resist unrelenting pressure, we are reminded of the conflicting forces in our modern world and the temptation that surrounds us. Randy's struggle makes the action all the more intense and as Randy searches for forgiveness, he gives us his view into numerous issues of the day. CJ cleverly balances Randy's views with alternative viewpoints from other characters and gives us a launching pad to discuss questions of faith and forgiveness, the conflict between Islam and Western religions, and the liberal vs. conservative debate over how best to deal with violent criminals in our society.

This book will delight the casual reader with non-stop action and spark a spirited debate over weighty social issues. To truly understand the nature of Randy's journey, we suggest reading Sin and Vengeance immediately before A Demon Awaits.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CJ West is one of my all time favorite writers. In this case he keeps you guessing all the way through.
The charater Randy Black keeps evolving and the story grips you so you cannot put it down. Hope CJ
keeps on writing for a very long time.

If you have a taste for adventure, you might enjoy spending some time reading this one. The author continues to draw the readers into the web of characters developed in the first novel. Filled with interglacial scenarios that keep moving forward with maniacal twists and turns it keeps the readers guessing to the end!
