The first book in Paperback Library's new series of novels based on TV's exciting gothic suspense drama STRANGE PARADISE.
JEAN PAUL DESMOND is handsome and vigorous. He is one of the world's richest men and he is desperate. His beloved wife Erica is dead, but will not let her rest. Jean Paul makes a pact with the devil in an attempt to bring his dead wife back to life.
JACQUES ELOI DES MONDES could be Jean Paul's twin. Except Jacques is 250 years old, and dead. Or is he? Jean Paul and Jacques enter into a pact that unleashes a tide of evil from beyond the grave which threatens to enslave Jean Paul -- and all the people around him!
