Book 2 in the Randy Black series

The novel picks up where "Sin & Vengeance" ended with a recap of Randy's brutal arrest.

Beaten to within an inch of is life by officers left unconscious and heavily sedated in ICU, Randy's mind goes into overdrive with barbaric visions that he will endure for the rest of his life. While recovering, these grueling visions never leave Randy and he decides to make amendments and searches for forgiveness. But the author has other intentions...

The thriller becomes e
What if you could see into the future? What if you could fathom your afterlife and the things it has in store for you? The mind-tingling question arises: Will I go to Heaven or will I end up in Hell?
Randy Black has seen it – both sides. Following his murder rampage to avenge his parent’s bankruptcy and death, Randy almost loses his own life due to the beating he takes from an arresting police officer. The things Randy witnesses while unconscious range from the indescribable beauty of God’s heave
A Demon Awaits is the second book in the Randy Black series written by ingenious storyteller, CJ West.

At the end of the first book, Sin and Vengeance, Randy Black found himself getting a spoonful of his own medicine as Murphy's Law once again proved itself trustworthy, ''Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.'' Things could have not gone worse for Randy, whose role changed suddenly and unexpectedly from hunter to prey with blood thirsty predators chasing him. Neither Randy nor the reader wi
I did not like this book nearly as much as the first. "Sin and Vengeance" starts out at a gallop and maintains the pace throughout. This one slogged along so slowly, I nearly gave up, thinking the intrigue and pace would never really giddy-up and go. It did, finally, but I didn't find it very thrilling or enthralling. It was not as carefully crafted.

I overlooked numerous errors in spelling and grammar throughout both books, but it's getting annoying. C.J. - get a decent editor, or take a couple
A Demon Awaits is a fast paced suspense/thriller. Randy Black is back, and his attitude has changed. Is he really fighting for redemption or just up to his old games ? If you thought Randy was evil, meet Heather Lovey. She is a piece of work, evil to the core. She has her own agenda and will use anyone as a "puppet" to fulfill her inner desires, and will stop at nothing , no matter what the consequences may bring. Murder, corruption and secrets, "Demon" is must read for suspense lovers!

Another great read. THe character from Sin & Vengenace, Randy Black, main person here. He's trying to turn his life around, and people are as bad as he once was. I won't go into detail but this book is almost as good as first. (to me all of C J West books are great reading) - first 3 books by CJ are a series, so to get the full effect start with Sin and Vengeance, A Demon Awaits, then Gretchen Greene. You won't be dissapointed
I don't want to give anything away...
this is the first book I have read by CJ West and it was AWESOME!
I've been stuck in the 'beach reads' for the past year and this was a very welcome read!!
I can't wait to start reading "Taking Stock"!!
Liked how the tables turned on him and how he realized he was in over his head. Good ending! Leaves me waiting for more of Randy/Oliver.

The latest from CJ West, continuing the story of Randy Black. The villain from his last book is now the hero.
