A family he doesn't remember. A secret he doesn't know. When Greg Dameron returns home for his mother's funeral, he will face his family's legacy, hostility from townsfolk, and a horror beyond his wildest imaginings. Can Greg redeem his family name, or will his family's secret turn deadly?

A person has no control over the family he is born into. Greg Dameron does not even know his family, but he is about to learn what he fears to know. Will Greg be able to save his own life, or will his family's influence lead him down his own "Bad Paths"? (ISBN 9780595475704, iUniverse, 2008).

Greg Dameron doesn't remember his family in Lost Haven, Iowa. Separated from them at a young age, Greg is emotionally torn as he flies home after the sudden news of his mother's death. Upon his arrival, Greg is surprised by the power and prestige the Dameron name carries in the strange little town. He soon realizes Lost Haven is not a typical small town, and his family is far from ordinary.

After meeting his mother's twin sister and her husband, Greg learns his family has several dark secrets. He finds that some of the townspeople are wary of him, while others are outright hostile. And then, Greg discovers there are mysterious dark creatures lurking in the woods behind the Dameron home.

Although Greg is heir to his family's legacy in every sense, he is not comfortable with what he learns. He is shocked when he discovers the Damerons' notoriety and power were founded on innocent blood and unspeakable acts. Ultimately, Greg must choose between doing what is right and saving his own life. Will he be able to overcome his family legacy and redeem the Dameron name, or will he become a victim as well?

"Bad Paths" is a must-read for horror fans, but it is not for the squeamish reader. Bone-chilling, harrowing, and gory only begin to describe this sensational debut novel by Justin Behrens. Original ways of using a nail gun and cooking steak are but a few of its embellishments. A fast-paced storyline and a surprising twist will make you eagerly turn the pages while vowing never to visit Iowa. Do not read this book before bedtime unless you enjoy nightmares!
