Publisher Comments:

In upstate New York, best friends Q and Jasper live typical high school lives filled with parties and girls. When Q starts acting recklessly, defacing lockers and misusing Bunsen burners, Jasper thinks his buddy is just letting off steam. But when his actions put both of their lives in danger, it’s clear that Q is possessed by something far more sinister than mere teenage high spirits.

Meanwhile, halfway around the world in Khartoum, Ileana Magdalen is tracking an elusive man who has left a trail of blood and bodies behind him, bringing strife, war, and genocide wherever he goes. It is Ileana’s mission to stop him, for she is a member of an elite group of hunters who search for a mystery that plagues humanity and drives men and women to commit unspeakable crimes.

Body Surfing is a mesmerizing and imaginative tale that creates a complete parallel universe filled with shockingly dark corners where the secrets of human nature wait to be discovered.


A provocative, visceral thriller about a race of demons who inhabit humans, and the havoc they wreak on the lives of two small-town boys.
