Maurice Lawless is a novelist from Houston, Texas. Found in Blood, his 2011 debut novel, has been hailed as "a classic detective story" that's "brilliant and scary." When he isn't busy conjuring more books of demons and werewolves, Maurice volunteers for National Novel Writing Month and speaks on writing at local libraries. He likes his steaks rare, and his fiction raw.

Excellent paranormal fiction. HBO might sink it's teeth into the main character Nelson, and if not, I am sure a demon will, again.
Once again (also read Dreams of Gray) Lawless does a fantastic job of writing his characters. You can feel the righteous jealousy rolling off of Carol, Nelson's wife, and also dislike Elle and her scheming for Nelson right from her introduction into the book. I am anxious to start the next book in this series to find out more about Mattie, Father Bennet, Sam the incubus, and of course Nelson.
Lawless describes the exorcisms in graphic and sometimes gory detail, but never describes something unnecessarily just for the gore factor. His monsters/demons are believable and horrible. His demons are all vastly different, but have one recurring trait, the eyes. There is no shortage of horror in this novel. You will find your heart rate elevated, and your eyes racing through the pages.
