The Color Of Evil

Tad McGreevy has a power that he has never revealed, not even to his life-long best friend, Stevie Scranton. When Tad looks at others, he sees colors. These auras tell Tad whether a person is good or evil. At night, Tad dreams about the evil-doers, reliving their crimes in horrifyingly vivid detail. Tad doesn’t know if the evil acts he witnesses in his nightmares are happening now, are already over, or are going to occur in the future. He has no control over the horrifying visions. He has been told never to speak of his power. All Tad knows is that he wants to protect those he loves. And he wants the bad dreams to stop. Read More >>

About the series

What makes this series unique?
Tad must wage a silent war against those who would harm the ones he loves.

Tad McGreevy possesses a special power that allows him to see auras around others, and later at night, relive the crimes of those with the color of evil (khaki). Tad doesn’t know whether the events he experiences in his nightmares are happening now, happened in the past, or are going to happen in the future.

About the first installment in THE COLOR OF EVIL, Jonathan Maberry said, “old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists.” The mysteries begin to deepen at the end of Book 1, when a main character disappears. The stakes heighten in RED IS FOR RAGE as we are introduced to Daniel Malone and learn of his penchant for kidnapping underage boys.

Tad loves Jenny SanGiovanni and Stevie is smitten with Janice Kramer. Even the adults get into the act, as Jenny’s mother marries a former policeman. Some of the romances are bound to fail, but more romance awaits and more heartbreak with it.

If you possessed a power that, might predict the future, what do you think would happen to you?
