From Publishers Weekly
In this reissue of the versatile de Lint's (The Onion Girl) second "Samuel M. Key" novel, a darker take on his typically upbeat urban fantasies, a serial killer with a supernatural pedigree upsets the peaceful order of the city of Newford. Newspaper photographer Jim McGann stumbles on the first clues to the killer's identity when he spots the same young girl and a graffiti scrawl reading "Niki" in the background of crime scene photos for a succession of murdered teenage hookers. McGann's search for the elusive Niki dovetails with the investigations of homicide detective Thomas Morningstar, who spots unbelievable similarities between the crimes and the handiwork of Teddy Bird, a child killer whom he gunned down two years before. In the course of establishing that Bird's malignant spirit is alive and pursuing the...

Book Review
Chad Baker was a rock star once, a real '60s hitmaker. Now he serves as benevolent angel of the Ottawa music scene, helping new bands make demos--and sometimes, secretly, helping a young beauty into his second, hidden recording studio. This is where Baker, a serial killer, records his victims' dying screams. When he combines the agonized vocalizations, he creates a hellish new music. Music that summons a different sort of angel--an unearthly and brutally vengeful Angel of Darkness.

Originally published in 1990 under the pen name Samuel M. Key, fantasy master Charles de Lint's Angel of Darkness betrays its early-novel status. The pacing is uneven. The Stephen King influence is occasionally too strong. And there are more characters involved than the younger, less experienced author was capable of juggling. --Cynthia Ward ...

From Publishers Weekly
Key ( From a Whisper to a Scream ) is not only a skillful storyteller but also a chronicler of women's issues in this sensitive, if politically correct, thriller. The beautiful Rachel Sorensen thinks her violent ex-husband is the only man she has to fear; she hides from him in an apartment where she unaccountably leaves the living room drapes open . Observing her in the opposite tower is Harry Landon, a celebrity photographer whose private art involves photographing unknowing women through his telescopic lens. He follows Rachel around, murders her gun-toting ex-spouse and befriends her in the guise of a gay man. Harry believes he is "protecting" Rachel's beauty by bumping off anyone who appears to threaten it. When Harry admits being drawn to "objective" standards of beauty in women, Rachel responds with feminist...

Book Description
The goal of this book is to provide practical solutions to save Africa and its people from an "African crisis" that is threatening to destroy the nation and eliminate human survival.
