The Hunchback of Notre Dame meets The Handmaid’s Tale and YOU in this twisted rendition of history.
Claude is stricken by tragedy, and all fingers point at the Gypsies as the nation divides, and an empire falls. He is the king's best man and has been given orders to rid France of all their problems.
He promised peace.
Amidst his role in a barbaric hunt and corrupt justice system, Claude finds himself drawn to a young girl of this minority race and consumes himself with her and his own ideas of who she should be for him.
They gave him power.
Paranoia and twisted delusion begin to bind Claude's double life as a charming official, able to justify his every crime to his followers, but also a criminal narcissist with a blood obsession.
Now their new world must be paid for.
Will his desires for the girl soften his heart? Or will the Judge's Demon of hatred add fuel to the fire in his search for the leader of the rebellion rising against him?
"Skillful...allowing readers to confront the dark, mad elements in society - providing a glimpse into the mind of psychopathic individuals who live on the fringe." (Prairies Book Magazine)
"Author Khris Pfeifer does very well in The Judge’s Demon, very aptly named, to keep readers hooked and tense in their seats until the very end where they are left wanting more. The author also does excellently in developing the sense of paranoia as well as showing the characters developing madness, and the relationships that are cultivated." (Readers' Favorite)
