You can pray, but you can’t hide.
When three children in a Catholic group home are brutally murdered, the survivors are hurried into separate foster homes across Long Island. Robin Hills, a fifteen-year-old who has spent the past several years under religious care, is thrust into a new, dysfunctional family with no spiritual beliefs. No longer protected by the religion and the nun she had come to love, Robin is completely alone and enveloped in fear.
As the murders continue and Robin fears she may become the next victim, her faith increasingly falters. However, she finds solace in a budding friendship with Dennis, a boy her age living in her new foster home. Dennis’s kindness, his acceptance of Robin, and his bravery in the face of evil–born of his passion for horror movies–combine to reassure her that she’ll survive the killings.
Armed with this new friendship and fueled by a rage she finally discovers within herself, Robin finds the courage and self-reliance to confront the darkest aspects of human depravity.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Debuting author Andreas layers a sense of foreboding with spats of violence to create a sinister and atmospheric story that will appeal to horror fans.” –Booklist
“ANGEL OF THE UNDERGROUND by David Andreas is a fun romp through a derelict doll factory…It is character heavy with just the right amount of suspense and gore to make it a horror purist’s dream…It is perfect for a vacation from reality without being trite or overly complicated…I strongly recommend it.” –Signal Horizon
