The Eternal One

At our human limits, when we've gone as far as flesh and imagination can take us, we meet the Eternal One.

The Crow

Immemorially old and inconsolable , he is there only for those who seek both revenge and love, and are willing to go all the way-and beyond.Wicked Prayer

On a coal-black night, on a desolate stretch of Arizona highway, two last-chance lovers die badly.

In these, the final, cruelest moments of his earthly existence, Dan Cody watches as the lifeblood of his lady is sucked down by the thirsty desert sands. In an instant , his heart and his redemption have been blown away by a postmodern witch and her sadistic goth-giant companion on their gor-soaked joyride to immortality.

But even as one life ends in pain and anguish for Dan Cody, another begins . He is about to join those chosen to walk beneath the shadow of the Crow's wing. Revenge will be the sole reason for his return; revenge on tow who are speeding into the night in a '49 lamb's-blood Mercury on the fast track to Hell..or Nevada. And thought Kyra Damon and Johnny Church have embraced evil with a zealor's fervor, they underestimate the power of what's pursuing them from beyond the grave-the rough beast that's now slouching toward Vegas with murderous rage in its dead eyes.

About the author (2000)

Norman Partridge's first novel, "Slippin' into Darkness, " was heralded as "nitro-laced, in-your-face fiction" "(Locus)." His short fiction has made regular appearances in the "year's best" anthologies for suspense, mystery, and horror. A collection of short stories, "Mr. Fox and Other Feral Tales, " won the Bram Stoker award. Another collection of short fiction, "Bad Intentions, " was a World Fantasy nominee. A pair of supercharged suspense novels, "Saguaro Riptide" and "The Ten-Ounce Siesta, " followed from Berkley Prime Crime in 1997 and 1998.

Partridge has worked in libraries and steel mills. He loves rock 'n' roll, drive-in movies, and old paperbacks where the bad guys get away with murder.
