"TRULY FRIGHTENING."
--Chicago Tribune

There is pure evil at work, infesting the body and spirit, driving its victims to insanity, suicide, and murder. To cast it out, a Jesuit priest must take a frightening journey into the heart of a Southern family tormented by an unspeakable curse.

"HARD TO PUT DOWN."
--Philadelphia Inquirer

As he unravels three generations of secrets and battles for the very soul of the family's last surviving member, he will wrestle with his faith in the face of lust and collide with dark forces hell-bent on destroying him.

"A TERRIFICALLY AMBITIOUS BOOK."
--Newsday

Brilliantly imagined and compulsively readable, DARK DEBTS is a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller--a remarkable novel that will grip you with its nightmare vision of evil and hold you spellbound until the very last page.

Karen Hall spent five years creating this vividly original story of faith confronting evil in Atlanta and Los Angeles. Her characters include Michael, a sexy Jesuit priest who is having an affair with a beautiful New Yorker editor; Cam, a reclusive southern writer who survived a murderous family only to leap to his death under mysterious circumstances; Randa, an obsessive newspaper reporter on the trail of Cam's family secret; and Jack, a lost soul who meets the love of his life just as he realizes he's losing his mind. Dark Debts will give readers nightmares and fantasies, provoke fear and laughter, inspire doubt and faith.
