Meet A Most Unlikely Crime Fighter…

A night that starts out as the best night of David’s life goes terribly awry when he and his new fiancé Julie unwittingly wander into dangerous gang territory. When David attempts to help a dying man—and ends up shot in the head—paramedics rush him to the hospital, fearing that they might be too late.

But when a brilliant neurologist uses a daring new treatment on David, saving his life and erasing his wounds—it erases his memory, too, and leaves him with amnesia.

The gang isn’t about to forget David, however, and will stop at nothing to kill this witness to their crimes. When they attempt to ambush David, he barely escapes and flees into an alley. Just when it seems like he’s about to be shot for the second time, a strange, vagrant-like creature, covered in trash comes to his rescue…

Garbageman. Who is he? And why does he want to help David?

A fast-paced and thrilling novel about a crime fighter made of the things most people throw away, Garbageman will entertain and delight fans of science fiction, horror stories, and medical thrillers.

“This is an exciting and suspenseful fantasy thriller that depicts the depravity and perversion of some human beings as well as the resilience and tenacity of others. The author keeps the story intriguing by revealing the identity of the Garbage Man at the final chapters which gives the story an unexpected twist. It is an easy read with graphically described scenes and dialogues infused with humor.”

And for those waiting for the sequel…

Psychic David Turley is thrust into a new adventure in this thrilling sequel to Garbageman.

David and his wife, Julie, are recovering from the events of the previous book. Both are doing well in their professional lives, but David’s remarkable telekinetic abilities have disappeared, and he’s eager to find the reason why. Julie, meanwhile, has immersed herself in Southwest Native American art and culture. She is a collector of kachina figures—handmade dolls symbolizing strange and powerful spirits. Her knowledge of mythology will come in handy when the supernatural world comes to call on the couple and David finds himself in possession of a strange Hopi artifact. Little does he know this will be the start of a new adventure into the complex underworld of vampire nightclubs, werewolf cults, and psychic superheroes.

Dogging them both is a serial killer, the Fisherman, and other paranormal demons and enemies. To defeat these dark forces, the couple will have to put their trust in a mysterious new ally.

Like its predecessor, Cryptic is written in author Erik Dean’s signature synthetic style. Science fiction, horror, mystery, the occult, and even the metaphysical exist side by side in Dean’s rich world of the supernatural Southwest.
