Genre: Horror, Fiction, Suspense


Father Noah Godfrey is no stranger to turmoil.

A former soldier turned priest and son of an acclaimed exorcist; he struggles to find work. Living life under his father’s shadow is taking its toll on him.

He needs money to survive, but with few viable prospects, his chances aren’t looking good.

Father Zachariah, a religious zealot, separated St. Agatha’s Church from the church body and reestablished a new physical church in the middle of Texas.

His return from a mission trip in Brazil raises questions.

The once beloved priest is a shadow of his former self and is believed to have gone mad. Despite his bizarre behavior, he’s amassed a huge following and has taken his evangelism to the airwaves. People have flocked to The Foundation. His captive audience has even gathered an elite group of believers who spend time at the compound.

When the congregation draws attention for all the wrong reasons, the Church dispatches Noah to investigate and report back on the validity of the rumors. Soon, Noah finds himself ensnared in what could be the greatest hoax the world has ever seen…or the location for the final showdown between God and the devil himself.

Will Noah uncover the horrifying secrets and expose the truth, or will the congregation's unwavering and deadly loyalty stop him in his tracks?

My Review:

Old Scratch had me from the get-go with all the suspense that kept me glued to the pages waiting to see what was around the next corner. Old Scratch kept me in suspense with its slow build-up as it slowly released all its secrets.

When I started reading Old Scratch I wasn’t sure what to expect but I must say what lay between each page gave me a surprise as I did not expect any of it. It sure kept me guessing page after page.

Old Scratch was a very intense read that kept me in suspense and hooked as I followed the priest wondering what his story was going to reveal in the end. Old Scratch is one of those books that will keep you up at night plundering everything that it holds between its pages. Old Scratch is an eerie and scary book that will give you chills.

The writing was very descriptive and wonderfully done. I had no problem picturing each and every scene in my head as I read. The characters were well fleshed out making them easy to picture and giving you a good feel as to who they were.

I highly recommend Old Scratch! Grab your copy of Old Scratch today!
