DEVIL’S CREEK is a gripping story that puts the reader right into the middle of the storm. Almost too scary for words, but the author found just the right ones. The plotting was clever and shocking, never more so than at the end. Once started, you won't be able to put this down. Paul Maitrejean is an author I'll want to keep reading.

Devil’s Creek by Paul Maitrejean

If you like The Twilight Zone or the Outer Limits, you will definitely enjoy this short story. Things are not always what they seem.

A young woman, Erika, has car trouble and ends up in Devil’s Creek. Townspeople are concerned on this particular night because it marks the 70 year old legend about the Angel of Death paying the town a visit. Erika is confused trying to figure out if the legend is true.

Paul Maitrejean writes with the perfect amount of suspense for a short story. His readers are engaged and surprised at the twists and turns Erika experiences in Devil’s Creek.

You won’t be disappointed with the Twilight Zone, Outer Limits ending!

This starts as a typical ghost story storms, brokens down cars etc....... but wait, thats where typical ends. The atmosphere is wonderful for a short story and really holds the reader, you won't want to put this down. A very satisfying read that I will highly recommend to everyone. Enjoy.

Paul is an upcoming writer who brings a great edge to his books. Devil's Creek starts off by bringing you to a town that you instantly identify with as well as people who feel as if they are your next door neighbor. He spends that book bringing you through what seems like the paces of a standard novel that brings you to the climax. Without giving away to many details, we come to a moment that pulls at your heart as the Devil comes to collect his due and then Paul gives it a twist that you never see coming. Your entire world feels rocked in this moment and of course he crafts his way to the end where he reveals one last secret that shocks you greatly. This is a great read that doesn't take long to get through (which I was glad of because I worked early the next morning and found myself unable to put it down).
