David B. Silva has two new titles on the Kindle that are in need of reviews.

- Introduction – Part One
- Introduction – Part Two
- And He Who Mourns
- New To The Neighborhood
- Never Far From Mind
- Fade In/Fade Out
- Through Desmond’s Eyes

The second title is a novel, The Presence. Allie Turner’s husband Max has been missing from home for nearly nine months now, and Allie is desperately struggling to hold her family – and herself – together. But things begin to fall apart when her twelve-year-old son Sean is badly burned in a fire at the abandoned lumber mill.
At the hospital, as Allie and her old son Darrell keep watch over Sean, things become increasingly difficult to handle. For Sean confides to Darrell that he encountered their father at the mill just before the fire broke out. Worse still, there as something terribly wrong with the man’s face, as if part of it had melted away.
Darrell has already had a hard time dealing with his father’s absence, and isn’t sure if he can believe Sean. But he promises to search for Max anyway.
His quest leads him to Old Miner’s Creek, where he uncovers something unbelievably terrifying. There’s a scattering of dead animals … all with the same facial disfigurement his younger brother previously described.
Yes, something strange and otherworldly has come to Kingston Mills.
Something dramatically affecting all living creatures which cross its path.
A curious, unstoppable presence of evil…
