One Crooked Thing
Something sinister has followed Ren Larson home through the dark winding roads of Los Angeles. Since investigating a series of murders, it has made its presence known. It murmurs in shadowed hallways. It watches from mirrors and whispers to his six-year-old child. It waits. His doctor says he’s got a case of war nerves. His housekeeper warns of a malevolent spirit, maybe only folklore from her Caribbean childhood. But no one can stop the foul thing, she says, until it devours the soul for which it hungers—a soul ripe with a secret sin.
“Crooked doesn't begin to describe the depth, texture, and complexity of the storyline in One Crooked Thing. What's real? What's imagined? And what's beyond imagining, but must be believed anyway? In this intricately developed tale of the psychological and the supernatural, Timothy Roderick has woven together strands from Renaissance Germany, the timeless Caribbean, and mid-20th-century America into a novel that will leave the reader breathless, wondering what might creep out of their own closet, basement, or mind."
Laura Perry, author of The Last Priestess of Malia, The Bed, and Jaguar Sky
"...this one scared the hell out of me like no other book has."
"You will find it hard to put down. It was totally gripping from the first page to the last!"
"...a composite thriller that comes into terrifyingly sharp focus toward the end. This is a real tour de force for the writer, and a lot of eerie fun for the reader."
"It was a suspenseful page turner from the start. Warning though: do not read this before going to bed at night!"
"Freaky, scary and exhilarating all at the same time. I’ll never look at a nun the same way.... beware, it’ll take some time to shake off the goosebumps!!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish! A well told plot and storyline with dark and horrific undertones. Expertly written to keep you constantly guessing, totally engaged, and repeatedly turning the pages. I recommend this one to all horror fans."
