"First off, Maynard Sims is one of my always-read authors, who never disappoints. A combo of two writing partners of long standing, Maynard Sims can write cozy while simultaneously being unafraid to stretch past paranormal borders." - Goodreads, Mallory Heart

The hunt is on!
Alice Logan has gone missing, and Harry Bailey and Department 18 have been called to help find her. The main suspect is Anton Markos, a satanic cult leader who has a predilection for young women like Alice. Members of Markos’s cult start turning up dead—shredded by what seems to be a wild animal. Is there a madman within the cult? Or is it something far more horrible?
Can Department 18 discover the impossible truth and end the spree of murder, insanity and carnage? Or will they become the prey?
"Each new novel of Maynard Sims’ Department 18 series is somehow better than the last. Mother of Demons is a fast-moving horror/thriller/mystery that captivates from the first chapter. [...] This book is a great chance to visit Department 18 with a story that is part X Files, part Sherlock Holmes, and completely enthralling." - Goodreads, Russel James
