Doctoral student Eric Hansen is in the second year of his counseling psychology program. His first psychotherapy client for the year is thirteen-year old Greg. The boy has been seeing apparitions of children, presumably long dead, roaming outside his bedroom window at his father’s house. For Eric, this case covers disturbing ground. Just a year earlier, a freshman at the university appeared at the clinic and reported similar harrowing images, only to discontinue his therapy after one session and never return. The haunting of Greg jolts Eric’s recollection of his own traumatic past and he is drawn into a whirlpool of unspeakable horror well beyond the scientific realm of psychology. Told within the context of multiple therapy sessions, Dead Works is horror novel in which a young doctoral student must help a boy make sense of ghostly and terrifying visions while simultaneously struggling against a world where acts of brutal evil threaten to destroy them both.
