The Imaginings                                                           a novel by Paul D. Dail

"never disregard your imaginings"

Three years after his brother Peter's suicide, David Blithe is still haunted by this cryptic message found scrawled on a piece of newspaper in his brother's apartment.  David can only believe that Peter must have gone insane...until the supernatural being that pushed his brother to his death finds David in Colorado.  The encounter nearly kills him.  Badly scarred, in a fight for his soul and his sanity, he escapes into the mountains.

Three months later, David collapses in the Montana cabin of Dr. Robert Marrick, his wife, and his their teenage daughter, Jeannie.  Something more than just coincidence seems to have driven David to the Marrick cabin, something that seems to revolve around the girl, but in the ensuing chaos, will he be able to save Jeannie's life without losing his own?

The Imaginings takes the reader into a world where the questions of "right" and "wrong" aren't so easily defined, locking David and Jeannie in a battle with an evil that threatens not only their lives, but ultimately all of humanity.
