Dead Religion by David Beers

A psychological thriller unlike anything you’ve ever read.

A hotel explodes in Mexico City, killing thousands.

All evidence points to one American citizen, Alex Valdez.

The FBI wants him, or at the least, to understand what happened in Mexico before the government down there can.

Agent James Allison travels to Mexico to find Valdez, or find out about him.
What he can’t know, what the FBI doesn’t understand, is Valdez’s past.

Alex Valdez’s parents gave him a blood-rite to unleash an ancient Aztec ‘God’–this rite led a small boy to a haunted man. One that doesn’t know whether this ‘God’ exists, and if It does, is It a demon? A man that cannot tell reality from dreams with a wife who has seen her husband commit atrocities to his own body.

Dead Religion follows both Alex Valdez in the last days before the hotel’s collapse and James Allison as he searches for the truth behind the fall. Valdez believes he knows how to stop the Demon, and James only understands he wants to make it home alive to see his brother.

In a world where miracles and Gods have been pushed to a past age, Dead Religion walks the fine line between insanity and reality, in which Agent Allison must uncover the facts of the terrific loss of life in Mexico City before the same torments find their way into his own life. Continue reading
