Review - Golem by PD Alleva
By Carmen, 23 October 2022
Year Published: 2021
Genre: Suspense, Horror
Detective. Angel. Victim. Devil.
A haunting tale of suspense, loss, isolation, contempt, and fear.
On November 1, 1951, war hero John Ashton was promoted to detective. His first assignment: find the district attorney’s missing daughter. But his only lead is Alena Francon, a high society sculptor and socialite committed to Bellevue’s psychiatric facility.
Alena has a story for the new detective. A story so outlandish John Ashton refuses to heed the warning. Alena admits to incarnating Golem, a demonic force, into her statue. A devil so profound he’s infiltrated every part of New York’s infrastructure. Even worse, he uses children to serve as bodily hosts for his demonic army, unleashing a horde of devils into our world.
When Alena’s confidant, Annette Flemming, confirms the existence of Golem, John is sent on a collision course where fate and destiny spiral into peril, and the future of the human race hangs in the balance.

My Take on the Book:
This is the perfect book for October, and if you enjoy horror – a book to pick up.
At first, Alena’s strange circumstance is like a dream come true – but things spin out control fairly quickly. John is one of those logical people, but that’s comes to a dead end when he witnesses for himself what Golem can do.
I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.
This was a book that was nicely written, and is definitely an author whose work I will read again.
