For man-for-hire, Frank Baldwin, it seems like the perfect job. Enter Mexico, locate missing pop princess, Melony Van Kyle, and return her to her father to collect $100,000. Easy.
With his intricate knowledge of Tijuana's seedy and dangerous underworld, Frank should have no problem locating his high-profile target. Still, he can't shake the feeling that something isn't right about his latest gig. When it becomes apparent that the missing girl may be connected to the death-worshiping Santa Muerta cult, Frank knows he should quit the job.
His dreams haunted by visions of a burning Tijuana and a hideous death god, he pushes deeper into the mystery. When Frank is visited by the dead, he realizes that he is in too deep. There are forces at work in TJ ... supernatural forces that proffer only death and damnation. And these forces have big plans for Frank ...
From the author of DEMON, THE REVEREND'S POWDER, and BLOOD SPRING.

"Erik Williams' latest is tough, dark, and assured. There's grit and grue to spare. Progeny is an escalator ride straight down into some subbasement of Hell." -Laird Barron
"Crisp dialogue and hair-trigger action make the scenes crackle with tension." -Weston Ochse, author of SEALTeam 666
"As always, Erik Williams delivers heart-stopping action, clean and stylistic prose, and unforgettable characters - if sometimes flawed and brutal - in Progeny. Blood magic and brutality! Highly recommended." -John Hornor Jacobs, author of This Dark Earth and Southern Gods
"The prose is mean, gritty, relentlessly paced. Readers of Cain and Chandler should feel at home here...well, except for the severed heads, of course. This is the new Hard-Boiled, and Erik Williams has just proven himself its most brutal and self-assured voice." -Joe McKinney, author of Flesh Eaters and Dead City
