REVIEWS:
"Schilling shows deft storytelling ability ... fresh, lively, and supplied with plenty of suspenseful twists ..."
-- PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

"Highly respectable writing ... part fantasy, part horror, and thoroughly gripping."
-- CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"A psychological thriller you won't forget ... written with an imagination that smacks of part Edgar Allan Poe / part island voodoo ... an unforgettable trek."
-- THE HERALD, North Carolina


SYNOPSIS:

In an abandoned cabin deep within the Louisiana bayou, a young couple is ruthlessly shot down setting a dark chain of events into motion. Adam Claiborne-a wealthy loan shark with a twisted sense of morality-rationalizes the deaths of Charlie and Monique  Sinclair as a casualty of his business. Under the umbrella of the Catholic Church, Adam maintains a false image as an upstanding pillar in the community. But all of that is about to change forever. With his family by his side, he attends Saturday confession at the upscale Saint Mary’s Cathedral, but for once his sizable contributions have no bearing. For once, he does not find the absolution he seeks, for there is a new priest on the receiving end of his admission. “Unless you know the sorrows of your victims, your sins cannot be forgiven.”
 

            After a tormenting night of strange dreams, Adam awakens to a nightmare he cannot escape. The bedroom around him is no longer the palatial suite of his Garden District mansion, but a dank paltry room in the French Quarter. The wife beside him is no longer the woman he married, but Monique Sinclair, the victim he murdered the day before, alive and breathing softly next to him. He is no longer inhabiting the flesh of his own strong, healthy body, but the weak stuttering physique of Charlie Sinclair. To Adam’s horror, it is three days back in time and he is now trapped in the body of his intended quarry.
 

            With a new perspective on the Sinclairs’ last unimaginable days of terror, Adam must fight for his life against the d ark force he created. Unless destiny itself can be altered, unless Adam can find within himself the pieces to make the contrition, he is about to be hunted, cornered and brutally murdered by the merciless killer who somewhere wears his face.

About Hannover House

Hannover House is a full service media company, specializing in the production and distribution of feature films for theatres, home video and the Video-On-Demand formats for the North American retail marketplace. Formed in 1993, Hannover House concentrated it’s activities exclusively in the literary, book-publishing industries until 2003 when the company entered into the DVD marketplace.

Now, with over 200 titles in its growing film library -- over half of which are in active distribution -- Hannover House has quickly ascended to a dominant role as a leading, independent distributor in the U.S. market. The company is particularly noted for its successes in placing DVD titles within mass merchandisers and key chain stores. Retailers carrying Hannover House products include thousands of independently owned and operated retail video stores and book stores, and most mass merchants and major retailers. In addition to this "core" distribution activity, Hannover House is launching two, major new ventures in 2014.  "VODwiz" is a new video-on-demand portal for independent films, structured similarly to Netflix and Amazon's streaming services;  "Medallion International Pictures" is the company's international sales and financing operation, designed to provide Hannover House with up to five, high-profile theatrical features each year.

Parade of Hits

Hannover's early successes in book publishing were sparked by critical acclaim and commercial success with "Sacred Prey" and "Quietus" from novelist / screenwriter Vivian Schilling.  The Company achieved its first # 1 Best-Seller on Amazon.com (and it's highest position on the New York Times Best-Sellers list) with the 2003 release of  Blood, Money and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K. by Barr McClellan.  The addition of DVD products in 2003 marked a turning point for the Company, as a steady slate of releases achieved top-selling status for Walmart and other major retailers, both as new releases as well as within the popular Budget Bins.

Top selling DVD titles include (listed alphabetically):  Classic Comedies Pack, Classic TV Pack, Come Away Home, Fun Park, Future Shock, Grand Champion, Martial Arts Action Pack, Samurai Action Pack, Twelve and Zombie Warz. At present, Hannover House is releasing about 24 titles each year to the DVD / Blu-Ray and V.O.D. markets in North America, with three-to-five titles also enjoying some degree of theatrical release.  The new productions being funded through Medallion International Pictures are expected to have broad, nationwide theatrical release support.
