Beast is Dan Gray's second novel. His first, Persephone, Descending, is available at Amazon.com.
Matt Brennan, a brilliant young investment banker in the City of London, is celebrating his greatest deal yet: orchestrating a mega-merger that will transform the electronics industry.
He is rich and successful beyond his wildest hopes. But his personal life is a mess. Fed up with his constant work, his wife is about to walk out on him. And he is plagued by mysterious dreams ...of the Inquisition. When Matt travels to Carcassonne in Southern France to buy a house he hopes will put his marriage and his life back together, he is plunged into the mysteries of the Cathar Sect, a fanatical branch of mediaeval Catholicism also known as the 'the Perfects'. As he unlocks their secrets, his life is at stake.
And Matt Brennan is about to discover that no man, and no religion, is ever perfect. 'Almost Perfect' is an enthralling thriller that straddles the centuries with consummate skill. It combines the plotting of Dan Brown, with the action of Steve Berry, and historical knowledge of Kate Mosse, and the story-telling of Lee Child. 'A knock-out book. John Childress is at the top of his game.” - Matt Lynn, author of the best-selling Death Force thrillers. “A brilliant, thrilling combination of the ancient and modern.” - Tom Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.

She loves the man she met in all the books she’s read….
History major Madison Blake spends half her time as the assistant curator at the Opposition City Museum and the rest as a singer in a local nightclub. In order to get a promotion at her day job, she’s determined to land an interview with the elusive, Ramsey De Wolfe, the eldest son of the town’s first family. He’s unable to love anyone because of an ancient family curse… The only thing Detective Ramsey De Wolfe does better than his job is seducing women. Add a family curse that keeps De Wolfe men from falling in love and you get the perfect playboy. Ramsey can’t resist the blond diva he spots on stage at one of his favorite weekend hangouts.
But after sharing a night of unbridled passion, he learns she has an agenda—him.
Disappointed, Ramsey tries to forget her. When someone tries to break into Madison’s apartment, instead of dialing 911, she calls Ramsey, and he comes to her rescue. With a serial killer on the loose, he’ll do anything to keep Madison safe. Will Ramsey’s past destroy the fragile hope Madison offers, or will he finally defy history and open his heart?
القلب يقظان؟ لماذا عندما نظر للمرآة لم يعرف وجهه؟ لم يعرف نفسه؟ كيف تسللت الغربة بينه وبين روحه؟ ومن داس على ظله فشوه ملامحه؟ كان يقظان في غرفة العناية المركزة, كانت كل إشارة نذير خطر محدق, أو نهاية وشيكة كل صوت يصدر, كل ضوء يومض, كل ثانية تمضي كانت إشارة إلى أن القلب قد توقف عن النبض, أو أن القلب يقظان كالخير الذي ينبض في القلوب الحية, كالروح التي تحيي الكلمات الصادقة سيعيش اسمه في قلب كل وجدان نقي يمر على تلك السطور وهاتيك الرسائل فيوقن بأنه حي يرزق وأن القلب يقظان.
