logline: A demonic rock band conspires to steal the souls of its fans.

Rock & Roll. Hell. Two great tastes that taste great together.

Long before Elvis gyrated on the Sullivan show or the Beatles toiled the smoky red-light bars of Hamburg, music has been sowing the seeds of liberation… or damnation. With each new generation the edge of rebellion pushed farther. Rhythms quickened. Volume increased. Lyrics coarsened. The rules continued to be broken, until it seemed that there were no rules at all. And as waves of teens cranked it up and poured it on, parents built walls of accusation to explain the offspring's seeming corruption. Sex and drugs, demon worship and violence are the effects. Music is the cause. Or so the self-styled guardians of morality would have us believe.

Meet The Scream. Just your average everyday mega-cult band. Their music is otherworldly. The words are disturbing. Their message is unholy. Their fans are legion. And they're not kidding. They're killing. Themselves. Each other. Everyone. Their gospel screams from the lips of babes. Their backbeat has a bodycount. And their encore is the warm-up act to madness beyond belief.

It emerged from a war-torn jungle, where insanity was just another word for survival. It arrived in America with an insatiable lust for power and the means to fulfill it. In the amplified roar of arena applause there beats the heart of absolute darkness.

Tonight you will hear it. Tonight you will understand.

It is the sound at the heart of the nightmare.

Professional Reviews

The New York Times Review of Books:
"Anyone who has ever been to a big, rowdy rock concert will be shaken by the novel's precise details and plot".

"THE SCREAM is a funny, horrifying work of fiction with a real set of social teeth… a high-powered high-decibel thriller that leaves you with an ear-ringing, brain-clanging buzz." -- Robert R. McCammon

LA Weekly:
"Wickedly clever… inspired."
