Welcome to East Salem. A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.

A local high-school girl is found murdered in a park amid horse farms and the wealthy homes of northern Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl?yet none remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot?something tied to an ancient evil?

Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his state-of-the-art security system has been breached by an elderly woman. Mumbling threats in Latin, she attacks him with an uncanny, preternatural strength. Before he has time to process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the girl's murder at the park. He agrees to help?and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charm years ago when they were in high school.

A heavy darkness is spreading. Yet a heavenly force is also at work.

Dani and Tommy suspect there's more to the mystery than murder, more to their growing friendship than chance . . . and more to the evil they're facing than a mere human killer.

Kept Me Awake
4 stars By Jessica R. Wakefield, Oct 01 2013
 I took a chance on this book. It was cheap in the specials bin. I'd never read Lis Wiehl and the book sounded interesting. I also really liked it! Usually supernatural thrillers don't work for me...I get too scared! But this one, wasn't scary (some might find it so) and it kept me enthralled along the way.

I found this book to be interesting with funny dialogue between the two leads plus their internal monologues had me chuckling! I found the characters to be well written and the mystery brings everything together only gets deeper as the novel progresses.

Overall, for a new author to me, I liked this book enough to go out and buy the second book in the series.  Stay tuned for my review of Darkness Rising soon.
