My name is Officer Thomas Nolan, and I am a saint.

Tommy Nolan lives a quiet life. He walks his beat – showing mercy to the desperate. Locking away the dangerous. Going to church, sharing dinner with his wife and son. Everyone likes Tommy, even the men he puts behind bars.

He lives a quiet life, until one day a demon shows up and he can smell it. Tommy can smell evil – real evil. Now he’s New York City’s only hope against a horrifying serial killer that preys on the young and defenseless.

But smell alone isn’t enough to get a warrant. Can Tommy track down the killer and prove his guilt?

Dragon Award Nominated Author Declan Finn returns with his typical action-packed, Catholic influenced style, in this groundbreaking horror series about an honest, religious man given the powers of a saint to fight demons in the Big Apple.

How do you do forensics on a killer possessed by a demon?

Can Tommy catch the killer before he becomes a martyr? Or will the demon bring darkness beyond imagination to the whole of New York? Read Hell Spawn today and find out!

    Hell Spawn is a dark night of the soul style spiritual crisis combined with a pretty grim police procedural. Detective Tommy Nolan stands out to everyone for his saintly disposition in a profession that is notorious for shattering innocence and producing boundless cynicism. His mettle will be tested when he crosses paths with a killer that draws upon the powers of Hell.

    Hell Spawn is the second of three books roughly covering the same ground I’ve read recently. In many ways, Hell Spawn hews the most closely to the world we live in, which might be why it comes across as more grim. Paxton Locke fights demons too, and some of the things he sees are horrible, but the tone is one of black comedy. Paxton and the other men and women who protect the Earth from the things that go bump in the night have the equivalent of superpowers, and an organization behind them when they go out and punch the devil in the face. When Tommy investigates a demonic homicide or is pummeled by a seemingly unstoppable foe, shock and horror prevail. It very much seems like it is Tommy against the world.

    Tommy is as confused and dismayed as anyone else would be, seeing the things that he has seen. But, Tommy also has a mission to fulfill, and the ability to do so. His gradual realization of this flips the script from an inactive/passive Good that cannot contain Evil to something that does feel a bit more like Paxton’s merry band of adventurers.

    Nonetheless, there is a difference in tone between these similar books that stands out to me. This book made me want to go to confession. Tommy Nolan lives in a world where demons roam free, and you don’t want to give them an invitation, or leverage. Lived, sacramental reality is an important part of who Tommy is, and it figures heavily in the book.

    That sacramental life is what makes it possible for Tommy to be so widely admired. He truly loves everyone, and his characterization is inspiring, in the sense that reading this book makes me want to be a better man. I am glad to see this kind of a thing, and I’m interested to see where the series goes.

    This book had me right from the log line. A detective who fights demons, with the powers of a saint. I was all in, and the book didn’t disappoint!

    It is rare for me to find an author who writes really good suspense fiction who also infuses his faith into the story in such a way that it fits into the story. Finn is not preaching as he writes; it just happens that Tommy Nolan actually lives his faith as he lives his imperfect life. For someone who continually stumbles (i.e. me), this is a revelation as well as a draw. I have to see how Tommy Nolan, who is a lot like Jack Ryan, manages the weird like Nathanial Garrett.
