Stalking Gideon Cain is a pulsating urban thriller written by Kerry Alan Denney. Brendan Callahan-McCallum is a successful fiction novelist whose life takes a drastic turn when a series of encounters with women acting like his fictional characters leave him questioning his sanity. Plagued by visions of his dead wife, Brendan becomes further spooked when he discovers that he is being tracked and followed by men working for an unknown enemy. Things take a turn for the worse as his friends and family get attacked alongside a private detective whom Brendan hired to solve the case. After he is forced to leave the sanctuary of his house, Brendan becomes convinced that answers lie in his past, and he must now do everything to discover the identity of his unseen nemesis.

Fast-paced and highly entertaining, Stalking Gideon Cain is a delicious page-turner that fans of thriller novels are bound to enjoy. Author Kerry Alan Denney crafts an absorbing tale of revenge that instantly grabs your attention and fills it with numerous twists and turns to keep you hooked through the pages. The characters are well-realized, and the main protagonist, Brendan, feels relatable and sympathetic to make you root for him. I also found myself caring for the side characters, especially Randy Garcia and Rebecca Roma. I found the nanotechnology used to infiltrate bloodstreams a terrifying prospect but a fascinating concept nonetheless. There's not a single aspect of Stalking Gideon Cain that I didn't like. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it to readers who enjoy a well-written thriller.

Deborah D. Moore

“Kerry Alan Denney has done it again, blending his talent with words, his love of animals, and his innate sense of justice to produce another great story. Actions have consequences, and some seemingly benign actions have severe consequences, as the novel’s protagonist finds out. Woven with careful research, brilliant descriptions, and his love of suspenseful twisted endings, Denney has another winner. Highly recommended.” – Deborah D. Moore, author of The Journal and the EMPulse series

“Wow! Only Kerry Alan Denney could have conjured up this story. I was hooked after the first page, my mind reeling, compelled to find out what’s going to happen next? Each intriguing plot twist was unexpected and fulfilling. I laughed at times, and to be honest, I cried as well. This tale is flawlessly paced with zero lulls in the narrative or dialogue, and rife with Denney’s fluid-like style of writing from the first word to the last. I highly recommend Stalking Gideon Cain if you’re looking for a hard-hitting thriller with a tasteful fringe of the supernatural.” — Edd Sowder, freelance editor and author of Mirrors I: In Thine Own Heart and Mirrors II: Shattered Remains
