William Brian Johnson’s Hell to Pay is a fun read that is impossible to set down. Johnson’s spills his amazing imagination in this book that is full of wicked twists and plots. It is the perfect blend of detective story and paranormal frolic.

Bailey is the main character who is a homicide detective. Failing to save two young twin girls on an earlier case, their murders heavily affected him and he hasn’t been the same. His marriage failed and fell victim to alcohol abuse to deal with his pain. The story begins with Bailey sober, he is determined to get his life back on track and you can’t help but cheer for the guy.

George, on the other hand, is a normal guy that runs an antique shop. He comes to a box with a scalp in it and things just go from normal to weird. While he is a suspect for homicide, his body is also transforming. The point of view of George was remarkably done and you feel the exact things he was going through.

The book is very captivating and simply grabs you by the wrist and leads you throughout the story. Johnson’s choice of words and how they flow was excellent. The rate of the plot ran at a good pace. This is a great book for people who enjoy reading about cops and murder investigations with a paranormal twist.
