Product Description

Product Description

“Readers may be bearing early witness to the arrival of a major talent.”
--Kirkus Reviews

Jessica “Jessie” James isn’t like other girls her age.

Eleven years old, Jessie has a gift that sets her apart. She can read people’s minds simply by touching their skin with her bare hands. And dark visions come to her in her sleep. Now, she is plagued by the image of a five-year-old girl trapped behind a cinderblock wall in the basement of an abandoned school.

Inside the wall, the little girl is there, alive and yet not alive. A man comes. When Jessie touches him, she learns his secrets. He’s Victor Strake, a serial killer of children. Worse, he isn’t human. He’s a demon from an alternate reality, and he comes to our world to feed on human flesh. He is as old as human history, and the wall is the doorway between his world and ours. To pass through it, Strake must spill the blood of an innocent at its threshold.

Pursued by Strake, tormented by nightmare visions of the crimes the demon has committed, Jessie struggles to save her sanity and her life.

“Great prose, great set-ups, great dialogue and characters that jump off the page. Can’t recommend this enough for those of you who like your thrillers on the very dark side.”
- Bookaholic

“A fast moving, hugely entertaining thriller.”
-- The Observer on Sunday

More About the Author

I was the youngest child in a big, noisy, New York Irish-American family. Ten minutes late to dinner and the food was all gone. Other kids in the neighborhood wanted to become cops, or firemen, or crime kingpins. I wanted to become Jimi Hendrix.

I'm the author of five novels - SMOKED, THE TAKEDOWN, THE HIT, THE DROP-OFF and THE DEVIL & JOHNNY DOG FOOD. I'm also the co-author, with legendary actor Rutger Hauer, of Rutger's memoir, ALL THOSE MOMENTS, an L.A. Times bestseller.

I've been featured or reviewed in major media throughout the world, including the Boston Globe, the New York Times, the London Times, the Daily Mail, Entertainment Weekly, Maine Public Radio, and many others.

One of my favorite things is travel. I may be happiest when surrounded by people I can't understand, and who can't understand me, and I'm reduced to frantic hand gestures.

I like to get things cookin'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 23 Nov 2012
By Joy L
Format:Kindle Edition
I was surprised by this. I've read all of Quinlan's books, and enjoyed them. Except for the fact that it's a fast-paced page turner, this one is almost nothing like the earlier ones. Gone are all the tough-guy curse words. Gone is the tongue-in-cheek gallows humour. This book is dark, frightening and more than a little disturbing. He's gone (in his earlier novels) from criminals stealing money and sometimes killing each other, to nightmare themes of demons devouring small children (in this one).

The heroine of this story, 11-year-old Jessie James, is a psychic who dreams of a dead girl bricked up in a wall. A demon who appears to be a man is released from prison, is looking for an innocent to sacrifice, and by the end of the book, is pursuing Jessie and her mother. That sets us up for a second book, called The Demon, which I have just purchased. The story is very compelling and once you start reading it, I think you will find it hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner. Could not put it down 3 Nov 2012
By Liam
Format:Kindle Edition
The Girl Inside The Wall is a gripping page turner. I read the book during Hurricane Sandy and I could not put it down. I have been reading some books by Gillian Flynn lately and the characters in the Girl In The Wall remind me of Flynn's characters. Evil people do walk amongst us and good but flawed (and sometimes terribly flawed) people either rise up to take a stand against evil and pay a very high price or fall under the mystic of evil. I just purchased THE DEMON (Book #2 of the Demons Among Us) and can not wait to start reading it tonight after work.

worth a read! Rather scary and the details are suffice enough to enhance the experience and imagination! Easy to read and worth the fear factor for a short book. Enjoy.
