“I deal with the supernatural, the unnatural, the odd, the strange and the uniquely horrifying things that are only supposed to exist in children’s nightmares.” – Thierry Adler
Who do you call when a tree (of all things) harasses you?
When Claire Simon, a quiet librarian, is tormented by the red oak on the hill near her house, she takes drastic measures and hires a specialist to help. After hiring Thierry Adler to rid her of her strange problem, things really get weird…
Excerpt from The Tree…
“So, you are an exorcist, then?” I blurted out in a harsh whisper of shock.
“Not really, more like a jack of all unnatural trade, versed in the occult, I’m trying to help those who have nowhere else to turn and no one who knows what to do to help them.”
Nervous laughter escaped my lips and I shook my head in agreement. “Because who can you call when a tree is haunting you?”
“Me.” He said with a kind smile.
