the resurrection game:

Novels of the shadowside III

Speeding through the night, Zack Westland seeks to put his nightmares behind him, at least for the moment. Yet when he stops for gas, the chittering sound of cacodaimons reminds him that there is no escape. Calling upon his abilities as one of the Anakim—a tribe of angels trapped on Earth—Zack dispatches the hideous creatures. Then he sees something that chills him to the bone… a man wearing his face. 

When a connection emerges between Zack’s doppelganger and a series of ritualistic murders, Zack must call upon his every ally to find the murderer before he can strike again. For all of them are targets, and the sadistic serial killer won’t stop until all are dead.
