Devil's Breath by Greg F. Gifune

Devil's Breath - Greg F. Gifune

 

This was an eARC from Netgalley.

When Stan Falk, a man on the verge of suicide, puts down the straight razor to answer a knock at his door, he finds himself facing the impossible, and so begins his descent into the darkness that will test his grip on his sanity and his reality....a grip that may dissolve into ashes at any moment.

Gifune blends urban legend, conspiracy theory and a healthy dose of "truth is stranger than fiction" into a perfect storm of noir sensibilities and pure, cold sweat paranoia, twisting both the outer and the inner landscapes, the temporal and the emotional, keeping the tension piano wire taut as Stan struggles to find his equilibrium in a world where nothing is what it seems to be, and what lurks among the gears beyond the thin veil of Reality makes it's presence known, pulling strings that stretch like a web through everything we know.

Highly recommended.
