Most of us come into this world with an inborn need for religion, a higher power to believe in. However, when fear and misunderstanding are the driving forces behind that desire, the result is rarely a good thing.
Eight years ago, Laura Bradford mysteriously disappeared off campus, causing quite a disturbance in the lives of Kenny Elliot and Gerald Reynolds, a journalism student with a fascination for Mesoamerican artifacts. When Gerald calls unexpectedly to tell Elliot he’s recently seen Laura then sets up a meeting only to be a no-show, Elliot tracks him down to get some answers. Instead he finds his old friend murdered in a ritualistic fashion.
Elliot takes a leave of absence from his job as a Tulsa police detective and launches an unofficial investigation, which leads him into the world of an Aztec deity with an appetite for blood.

Porter, Oklahoma holds a dark secret, and troublesome dreams plague Tulsa Police Detective, Kenny Elliot, who grew up in the small town. When a bizarre murder catapults Elliot into his past, he's brought face to face with the fabric of his nightmares. A shiny necklace dangles from the rearview mirror of the vehicle where Lagayle Zimmerman, the victim, is discovered.
Nine years earlier, in Porter, a similar necklace swung from the mirror of a Mustang that harbored the mutilated bodies of Elliot's friends, Jonathan Alexander (Johnnie Boy), and Marcia Barnes. Most of the town believed Elliot killed his classmates. But the Chief of Police, Charlie Johnson, didn't share the town's convictions. No arrest was made. Elliot didn't stick around to find out what was going on. He left town, never to look back - until now.
Risking his job and his sanity, Elliot digs into his past and faces his demons to expose the truth.

I will be running some great Christmas deals this year, but first a word from our sponsor.
A few days ago, my wife, Kathi, and I decided to dine at a local barbeque restaurant. Upon being seated, we were asked for our drink order. We ordered colas.
“Would you like a short one or a tall one,” the waitress asked.
Being a bit intrigued by the question, I asked for the difference.
The waitress measured a distance from the table with her hand and said, “About that much.”
Later that night at a different restaurant, a waitress took our drink order and brought the colas.
Seconds later, another waitress appeared with two more colas. “Oh, did someone bring your drinks?”
She then placed the drinks on the table. “Well,” she said, “I’m your server, so just in case.”
I didn’t ask in what case that might be.
