Think the devil is easy to recognize? You are wrong. Evil comes in all shapes and sizes. Thomas and Joey have known a great deal of trouble in their lives. Through it all, they have been able to count on each another. But everything starts to change when they meet Louis Stoaffer. Stoaffer spins an engaging tale of betrayal and downfall. For assisting the old man in getting his revenge upon a scheming wife and a treacherous business partner, Thomas and Joey will be rewarded with the means of making their dreams come true. However, as the trio travels south to carry out Stoaffer's plan, the promised slice of heaven goes south as well. Nothing is as simple as it first appeared. Dreams become nightmares. Demons within and without must be confronted. The final question is how far Thomas will go in order to save himself.

About the Author

Jeffrey Littorno spent many years teaching English in the United States before going abroad to teach. After living in Kuwait, South Korea, Saipan, and Australia, Littorno returned to the United States and set about achieving his dream of writing novels. He now lives in Northern California with his wife Gyeyeol and a growing number of cats. When he is not writing, Littorno teaches prison inmates in Folsom, California.

The ghost story Bloom's Desk is Littorno's first novel. Soul Hostage, a dark fantasy, is his second. His third novel The Most Uncommon Cold I: Life in the Time of Zombies is the first part of a zombie series. The Most Uncommon Cold II: Surviving in the Time of Zombies is currently being edited for release. Not surprisingly, the talented Mr. Littorno has quickly risen through the ranks to become a bestselling author in the world of horror novels.

Praise for Jeffrey Littorno's paranormal thriller 'Soul Hostage': "From the very first page, I found myself wound up in the barbed-wire tangle of mixed emotions Littorno uses to ensnare his readers... <em style="font-size: 14px;">Soul Hostage is not a book about religion, but it definitely emanates the chaotic battle of good versus bad and right versus wrong... Freaky and frightening five-star book!" - April "I am unsure what genre to attribute this marvelous work. It is definitely a thriller filled with suspense, but it also has horror components. His works are evocative of Stephen King, with overtones of H.P. Lovecraft and a sprinkling of Steinbeck." - Merry Widow "Author, Jeffrey Littorno's, novel was excellent, suspenseful, extremely scary, thriller, that had a mind blowing ending...This is a perfect example of 'originality', and not spinning someone else's story.... It was so thought provoking, that it took me a few days before I could even write this review....The real scary question I have........ who is author, Jeffrey Littorno and where has he been hiding? I definitely recommend this novel to any reader who is tired of the same thing over an over." - Robin Lee "As a supernatural suspense thriller, <em style="font-size: 14px;">Soul Hostage delivers well. It is innovative, with enough cliffhangers to keep you turning the pages. Moreover, the characters are compellingly 'real': they pulse with blood and are propelled with motivations you and I can empathize with. Despite their 'sameness' in the sense that they only want to survive, Louis, Joseph and Thomas have distinct personalities that clash and complement and sparkle throughout the book--their human failings, and the way they chug along on the track like massive train wrecks, compel and mystify." - Meghan

Whether it is the ghostly horror of<em style="font-size: 14px;"> Bloom's Desk, the paranormal chills of <em style="font-size: 14px;">Soul Hostage, or the zombie dread of <em style="font-size: 14px;">The Most Uncommon Cold I: Life in the Time of Zombies, Jeffrey Littorno definitely delivers the thrills that horror fans are screaming for.
