In the ten years since John Malley lost his wife and daughter, he has slowly faded into obscurity in a rural Pennsylvania town. He spends his days at the local bar and tries to numb the pain of his loss. That is, until Ted’s Dead Rose Tavern becomes the home of the biggest mass killing in the history of the town. John, the lone survivor of the killing-spree, is forced on the run. He heads north where he hopes to hide out at his brother’s house.

Meanwhile, in New York City, young Melanie Parker investigates a disturbing new trend she discovered online. From what she has learned, metallic black bands worn along the forearm are responsible for some form of mind control. Skeptical of this theory, Melanie embarks on a night time excursion that places her in the middle of a riot in the middle of the city. Melanie fights for her life as chaos spreads throughout the city.

As John witnesses the events in New York, he is compelled to take action. But once in the city, John is forced to confront his past.

MELANIE SHOOK WITH FEAR. She wanted to wake from this madness, to roll over in bed and realize none of this was real, but her feet were glued to the pavement. Her eyes were teary, and her nose was cold and runny. She trembled uncontrollably. She had never been so terrified in all her life.

All she had seen since arriving at 111th Street was beyond her understanding. No one had mentioned a mass of bodies all convulsing as though they had swallowed poison together. Their mouths foamed as they thrashed against the ground. She wished Bridgette was with her, at least then she wouldn’t be alone.

Then, Melanie felt a pair of eyes focused intently on her. She turned and saw one of the wrist watchers clambering to her feet. She turned and saw the others rising likewise. Like lasers, their gaze turned toward her, direct and unflinching.
Josh Magnotta has been a resident of northern Pennsylvania for most of his life. Throughout his early life and teenager years he was an avid writer but during college drifted away from the passion as work and other priorities took precedence. In 2014 he graduated from college and soon began working swing shift in a factory. It was here, during off shifts where Josh would read during the night to stay awake, that his passion for writing was rekindled. After leaving the factory-life behind Josh went back to college and began work on his first novel, A Sweet, Soft Glow. He has since been writing ever since.
