“John Gray’s THE DESECRATED is a spine-tingling page turner.” 
 bestselling author 
Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times

“Suspense and horror fans will love this deeply atmospheric thriller that twists and turns its way to a shocking end!” Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of One Step Too Far 

John Gray announces himself as a major voice in modern literary horror with his debut novel, THE DESECRATED. Surgically precise suspense, breakneck pacing, and a brilliant narrative arc that gets under the reader's skin are all in full force here. A remarkable debut, and highly recommended." Jay Bonansinga, New York Times bestselling author of The Walking Dead: The Rise of the Governor 

A realistic look at the darker side of human nature … a compelling horror story.” Kirkus Reviews 

“A must-read paranormal thriller. Fans of James Rollins and Dan Brown may find a new voice in John Gray.” 

Hauntings. Disappearing corpses. A terrifying curse.

None of those are in Jennifer Shelby’s job description when she joins the night shift at the NYC Morgue. She just wants a quiet place to regroup after dropping out of college.

She also hadn’t planned on babysitting a British super star.

Trevor Pryce has been sentenced to community service at the morgue. His charm and love for macabre, practical jokes irritate Jennifer equally. And put him at the top of her list of suspects when things turn deadly serious.

Jennifer doubts her own sanity when she starts to see the impossible. Corpses move. They sit up. They try to speak. The visions plaguing Jennifer begin to manifest outside the morgue as well. She feels like there’s nowhere to hide as the murders and mutilated bodies pile up. But she finds an unlikely ally.

As the hauntings become more shocking, Jennifer and Trevor join forces to uncover the truth. What they find is dark and malignant. And the trap they fall into threatens to close over them forever.
