THE LOST AND THE DAMNED
There is a darkness waking up in the Bellingham mental hospital. Around this evil, the building is twisting and distorting, becoming a place of monsters and murders. With each death, the darkness grows stronger. Doors are opening to other times and other places, reality is shifting.
Into this comes John Keats, a private detective more accustomed to catching infidelity than missing persons. In pursuit of a half a million dollar bounty, he has tracked down missing rock star Katie Vanders to Bellingham, but he has no idea what waits inside. It should have been easy money: go in, get the girl, and leave. But now that he is in the hospital, he has no way out. The exits are blocked, the hospital is falling apart, and something is chasing him. Even after finding Katie, there is no escape from this trap. His rescue mission has become a game of survival as the hospital twists apart across time and space.
As deadly secrets are uncovered, a malevolent intelligence is awakening. Can John and Katie figure out how to stop it and escape the hospital, or will they find themselves forever lost in darkness?
Private detective John Keats has another missing person case. Despite the horrors found in Bellingham hospital, the two years since THE LOST AND THE DAMNED have been normal barring nightmares. But the dark parts of this world are not done with him yet. Once again he makes a change from cheating spouses cases to do more traditional detective work, this time searching for the creator of a PBS children's show. The pilot of the show is almost finished, but the creator just disappeared without a single word to anyone. The studio thinks he quit from stress, but not all agree. Despite his work, paranoia and puppets are all John finds in the studio. But his investigation is not over. There's plenty of time for something black and horrible to reach across reality to call his name once more...
