Summary :

Two years ago, Claire Challis's four-year-old son disappeared without a trace. Now a neighbor's child has vanished from right outside of her apartment. A strange ancient church that seems to be the site of unspeakable rituals...a shadowy figure that seems to appear and disappear at will... Suddenly Claire finds herself at the center of a web of intrigue...and in fear for her life. Still, she is determined to learn the truth behind the abductions, and learn once and for all the fate of her missing son. What Claire cannot realize is that her quest may lead her not to the truth she seeks, but to a place of madness, horror, and condemnation beyond her wildest imaginings.

  • "Stephen Mark Rainey brings us a Cthulhu Mythos novel that neither gushes with avant-garde blood nor creaks under the rusty chains of homage. BALAK strikes me as the best story of its kind since Russell Kirk’s Lord of the Hollow Dark (1979)...Rainey moves his story along with just the right balance of suspense and revelation, and provides a resonant climax." Paul di Filippo, Asimov's Science Fiction
