Publisher Description

A heart-pounding supernatural epic spanning two decades in the lives of four friends, You Come When I Call You is a classic of supernatural thrills from New York Times bestselling and Bram Stoker Award-winning author Douglas Clegg. A high desert town has turned toxic after twenty years of nightmares. Now, a woman in Los Angeles believes her visions and memories are signs of insanity; a man named Peter Chandler follows a teenager into a house of darkness; in New York City, a cab driver begins to see a demon-haunted world all around him — while he’s driving. 

And an old friend — from years ago when they were all teenagers in the town of Palmetto, California — is coming for them.  He calls himself the Desolation Angel. He has returned to draw them all back to the dark place where they once committed a ritual of such intense savagery that it ripped their minds — and souls — apart.  

At the center of it all, a mysterious girl named Wendy Swan, who has been missing for twenty years.

For some reason, my iPad wouldn't let me download this book. I have loads of books there, just not this one.
So I got it out of my library.
The hype is worth it. One of the best horror novels I've ever read. And I have read a lot of them.

This is the worst kind of assault on the senses with little or no story to support it. Not worth reading beyond the first few chapters.
