Providence: A Novel

Childhood best friends Jon and Chloe grew up in a tiny town in New Hampshire. Just as he is about to open up about his true feelings, Jon is abducted by his substitute teacher—a disreputable scientist obsessed with H.P. Lovecraft and saving humanity.

Four years later, Jon successfully escapes from captivity, only to realize that he now possesses incredible power that threatens anyone he has strong feelings for.

Determined to protect Chloe, he takes off to Providence.

Meanwhile, Detective Charles “Eggs” DeBenedictus is on a mission to unearth the truth behind a string of strange deaths by young, healthy people—even if it ruins his job and destroys his marriage.
