A four-year-old boy with a rare glandular malfunction, a genius IQ, and uncanny telepathic power is the catalyst that creates this compulsively readable novel of dual personality and psychological possession. What is at the core of Damon’s unique affliction?
Damon is a “once in a lifetime case” for psychiatrist Dr. Kyle Burnette, colleague psychoneurologist Dr. Ted Drinkwater, and nurse Betty Snider. In psychotherapy, Burnette discovers a mature, sensual, menacing alter ego in Damon, an extremely rare occurrence in so young a child. Concurrently, the glandular malfunction seems to be causing Damon’s young body to mature sexually to the level of a grown man’s.
What are the true sources of Damon’s strange seizures, his breathtakingly accurate reading of Dr. Burnette’s mind, and the increasing menace of his behavior?
In the tradition of great psychological mysteries such as Sybil and The Three Faces of Eve, Damon is a story based on the bizarre but medically impeccable fact.

About the author

C. Terry Cline Jr. was born in Birmingham, Alabama “on a train going out,” he always said, because his family moved often during his youth. Terry looked at life as a big adventure and aspired to be a writer from an early age, despite the fact that he hated school. His relationship with traditional learning and his desire to escape authority to his natural environs was captured in Judith Richards's novel, Summer Lightning, set in Belle Glade, Florida.

Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl – a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the “Chimpion” Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.

At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a “master of suspense” by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.

C. Terry Cline’s wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.
