Michael Davidson, a child abuse investigator, devoted writer and author, has completed his newest book “Toy Store”: a gripping and potent journey into the mayhem and enigma of deceit, religion and truth that main character Jon comes to know when he is given a journal revealing the real history of a local shopping center.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Michael Davidson’s prolific tale will keep the reader on the edge of their seat!
“When I asked the artist, Douglas Jones, if he could come up with an illustration depicting evil overcome by good, within the context of the plot for the cover of my new book; I knew it was a tall order. Well, what you see is what I got; and you don’t mess with the art of an artist without the probability of dire consequences, so I decided to set with it for a while. By the time I did call him, I’d grown to appreciate what he’d done and, being a writer, I asked him if he could put some words to the conceptual figure he’d drawn. He stated, unequivocally, that there was nothing, even remotely, conceptual regarding his work and that he had clearly fulfilled my request,” said author Michael Davidson.
The illustration on the cover is a highly expressionistic representative portrait of the Ocean Front Mall, and a representation of the primordial struggle between good and evil. The Toy Store, within the mall, is the cancerous heart, circumscribed and protected by the Demon, Samael; the ‘Fallen Angel of Death,’ who periodically attempts embodiment through the current property owner of the mall. Jon Sadler is presented with a journal revealing the history of the mall and four generations of related owners. The journal introduces Jon to an enigmatic character, by the name of “Preacher.” The Preacher offers a riddle in the form of an incomplete symbol, the solution of which promises and end to the curse on the Ocean Front Mall.
Readers who wish to experience this provocative work can purchase“Toy Store” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
