Takedown: A Gavin Pierce Novel
by William G. Griffiths
Long Island detective Gavin Pierce is reconstructing his life after his harrowing battle with Krogan, an emissary of the devil. Krogan was exorcised by Reverend Buchanan and banished, with Pierce's help, into the body of a giant tortoise. But the reverend is dying, and Krogan uses the opportunity to escape his cold-blooded prison. Free at last, the ancient demon finds a human host in professional wrestler Jackhammer Hoban. The wrestling milieu provides Krogan with plenty of opportunities for aberrant behavior and a public platform on which to expound his evil message. Pierce, who'd hoped to return to the mundane world of street crime, is instead drawn into battle with the darkest forces that confront humankind.
