Through a series of circumstances Black's life is turned upside down. He loses his job, his marriage and his NYC lifestyle. And then he finds God.
Told in first person across three sections: The Flesh, The World and The Devil, we see Black's life from when he was a kid through to his high-flying days and finally to being chased by evil which takes him back to where it all began: his home town. Evil chases Black in the form of a series of copycat murders that lead him from NYC to his hometown and draw him into a web of small town politics and satanic rituals.
This is a classic detective story but with a supernatural add-on. Black along the way develops the gift of seeing the demonic in people. Parshall does an excellent job revealing the thin veil between the natural and supernatural worlds. And he has a vivid imagination in creating some fabulously scary demonic creatures.
I liked Trevor Black and there's good development in his character through this story. It's a challenge for an author to write in first person as the entire story is told from the eyes of the one person. But Parshall does this really well and it adds to the feel of it being a classic detective story which are often shown from the eyes of the detective.
Black develops a romantic interest which adds to the story and the lady in question Ashley is another excellent well rounded character who struggles with anxiety. I hope we see more of Ashley in the next story.
This is the first Parshall novel I've read and I'm excited about reading the second book in the series.
I must say that Trevor Black spoke the truth when he said that alcoholism and drung addiction are satanic. After all, Satan came to steal, kill and destroy. That's what Jesus said. That is what happens with addiction or evil in any form. Not only does it hurt the addicted person; it negatively impacts every person in the household.
