An evil force is at work at the Hospital where Nathan is recovering from injuries he received at the hands of his Mom’s abusive ex-boyfriend. Demonic looking men with pale faces and glowing eyes lurk in the shadows. Someone is harvesting skin and organs from living donors against their will. In his dreams, Nathan can see these demons in their true form -- evil creatures who feed on the fear and hatred they create in their victims. Nathan’s only ally is the Doctor who cares for him. Together they must find a way to stop these creatures before they, and their loved ones, become the next victims.

“With its tight muscular prose and sharp dialogue, The Donors will keep you hooked from the opening page. Wilson has written a novel packed with surprises and suspense, and drawn characters whose every pang the reader feels. This is a novel full of visceral, intense moments. It will keep you holding on until the brilliant end.” - Richard Godwin, author of Mr. Glamour and Apostle Rising.

“Jeffrey Wilson can spin a chilling scene with the best of them, but it’s his characters that make his writing so horrifying.  These are real people and real families, and Wilson forces us to walk with them on a terrifying journey into the blackest shadows where creatures of primordial evil feed on their darkest fears.”  -  Brett J. Talley, 2011 Bram Stoker Finalist and author of That Which Should Not Be and The Void
