Today we are excited to bring you a cover reveal for Alan Baxter‘s Recall Night, the follow-up to Manifest Recall, which will be out August 25th from Grey Matter Press with a pre-order coming soon. Manifest Recall was one of our favorite novella’s of 2018 and featured the perfect blend of horror and noir that we absolutely love here at Ink Heist, so when we found out Alan was returning to the world of Eli Carver, Recall Night immediately shot to the top of our Most Anticipated of 2020 list. If you’re interested in learning more about Eli Carver, make sure to check out our review of Manifest Recall. Chances are if you’re a fan of what we cover here at Ink Heist, both Eli Carver books will be welcome additions to your library.
Alan’s writing is razor-sharp in this series and he keeps cranking the tension throughout the story before delivering some devastating blows to the reader that are guaranteed to leave a mark. When we first met Eli Carver in Manifest Recall, one of the first things we said at Ink Heist was that we hoped Baxter turned this into a series and we were far from the only ones with that wish. Well, Alan and Grey Matter Press must have heard our wishes, because this summer, Eli Carver is back.
Check below for the stunning cover of Recall Night and to get a taste of what sort of dangers await Carver.
“Eli Carver is back with a vengeance! RECALL NIGHT is brutal, gritty fun and a phenomenal follow-up to MANIFEST RECALL.” — Brian Keene, author of The Complex
“Alan Baxter is an accomplished storyteller who ably evokes magic and menace.” — Laird Barron, author of Blood Standard
From Grey Matter Press:
Back from self-imposed exile in Canada where he fled to avoid the law following the blood-stained events in Manifest Recall–the first installment of award-winning author Alan Baxter’s latest supernatural thriller series–Eli Carver returns to the states with thoughts of starting over. But an accidental encounter on a train with a mysterious woman, one he soon learns has her own dangerous past, threatens to unravel his well-intended plans.
Upon their arrival in New York, the duo quickly find themselves entangled in an ongoing war between two rival crime syndicates. And with the ghosts of his own past continuing to torment him, Eli finds himself taking the darkest of turns as he’s drawn down a perilous path into a world of ancient religion and deadly occult rituals.
