Another Review of Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1 by Charles F. French

Standard
Maledicus
“Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book I” is, on the one hand, a masterstroke of suspenseful storytelling, but also a touching exploration of the human drive and spirit. Maledicus, a vile demon, who in life was a monstrous torturer and advisor to the ancient Roman Emporer Caligula, embodies pure evil who will not let death get in the way of his search for absolute power.

Opposing Maledicus, we meet Roosevelt, Jeremy, and Sam, three men who, in their retirement, form a group meant to investigate all manner of the unexplained and occult. They name themselves The Investigative Paranormal Society, and before long find themselves pitted against this ancient evil who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

The story spans multiple periods, from ancient Rome to modern-day Pennsylvania, all described in vivid detail, which makes you feel like you are right there with them. Our heroes are deep, complex characters, all dealing with challenges and the ghosts of life experiences that we all have as we walk in the twilight of life’s journey.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a deeply disturbing villain, relatable heroes, historical settings, and comfortable, yet sophisticated, writing. It is highly entertaining, and is as much a story exploring the relationships of three friends, as it is a gripping tale of horror and suspense.
