“Fast-paced, relentlessly horrific, and loaded with twists and surprises, Faherty’s dark tour of Innsmouth delivers a gut-wrenching tale of madness, monsters, and heartbreak. Action-packed cosmic horror at its gruesome best!” —James Chambers, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Engines of Sacrifice and On the Night Border

Henry Gilman has spent years trying to separate himself from his father’s legacy of murder and insanity. Now he has the chance – all he has to do is figure out who’s been killing people in Innsmouth. Then he’ll be a hero and win the heart of the woman he loves, Flora Marsh. But soon he’s caught in a web of danger, with the undead stalking the streets at night, a terrible monster lurking below the city, and a prophecy of destruction about to come true. In the process, his actions cause unwanted consequences and to save Flora he has to do the very thing he’s spent his life trying to avoid: follow his father’s footsteps into madness.

"With SINS OF THE FATHER, JG Faherty injects new life into one of H. P. Lovecraft's most storied settings – the demon-haunted town of Innsmouth. With a tale that spans from Innsmouth to Arkham, from the spaces between the stars to the depths of the sea, from Miskatonic's marbled halls to Antarctica's icy plains, Faherty will have you smelling the stench of rotting fish...and feeling the fingers of clammy, cold hands around your throat."

– Brett J. Talley, author of THAT WHICH SHOULD NOT BE and HE WHO WALKS IN SHADOW.

“Written with that familiar first person Lovecraftian style, author JG Faherty brilliantly offers stomach-churning nightmares and rotted flesh abominations. He paints a perfect cinematic scenery with a limelight for roaming watery deaths and walking corpses that only The Ancient Ones could create.”
