Takedown: A Gavin Pierce Novel

Long Island detective Gavin Pierce is reconstructing his life after his harrowing battle with Krogan, an emissary of the devil.

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.
