Here is some info for the back cover of the book (fit what you can):
For over seven years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is discovered, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim, a victim who may still be alive.
As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows even in death, the killer is far from done. When he discovers the killer’s personal diary, he finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.
With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. The police have little to go on. Time is running out and the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this fast-paced thriller reminiscent of Se7en and Silence of the Lambs.

Praise for J.D. Barker’s International Bestselling Debut, Forsaken
"Incredibly written, supremely creepy. I don't say this lightly: J.D. Barker is a force to be reckoned with."
Tosca Lee, NY Times Bestselling Author
"Barker's ambitious debut is aimed squarely at fans of classic horror. Witches, spells, miniature demons, and personal doubt give plenty to latch on to... the plot moves at a brisk pace... a promising start to a planned series."
Editorial Review, Publisher's Weekly

Editorial Review, Horror After Dark
"Eerie, creepy, and frightfully good. Watch out Stephen King...J.D. Barker is hot on the trail of horror writing and will most certainly give you a run for your money!"
Editorial Review, Best Crime Books
"A horror book that grips you from the start. I grew up reading horror by the likes of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and James Herbert, to name but a few. J.D. Barker deserves to have his name up there with them."
Editorial Review, By The Letter
"Classic gothic horror at its best. A truly impressive debut."
Author, Joan Hall Hovey

Editorial Review, Confessions of a Reviewer
"Incredibly atmospheric and cinematic - it would make a fabulously creepy movie. ."
Editorial Review, Lucy Literati
"Mr. Barker may have begun by following in the footsteps of such horror royalty as Stephen King, John Saul and Dean Koontz; but he has blazed a unique path of his own with FORSAKEN."
Editorial Review, Fresh Fiction
"This was hands down the best novel I've read this year."
Editorial Review, Word Gurgle
"The plot is great. The action doesn't slow down for a minute. I never really understood the term 'Tension building up to a crescendo' before, but now I do. The ending is brilliant."
