After a routine DNA background check, Brennan Wade is on the run for murders he does not remember committing. Pursued by a shadow agency, he fights to clear his name and catch the true killer. Brennan forges an uneasy alliance with Joan Runciter, the only woman to survive an attack, and together they delve into a world of secret history and ancient horror. As the body count rises and his true nature is revealed, Brennan must decide if the world’s salvation is worth his own corruption.

“I wanted to create something unique and engaging, and I think I’ve accomplished that,” says McSwain. “I love hearing how excited readers get when they talk about this book. I’m a stay-at-home dad, and finding time to work and still be a good parent is difficult. But publishing a novel is something I’ve dreamed of doing for a long time, and I’m sure Monsters All the Way down will be the first of many.”
Ryan McSwain lives in Amarillo, Texas, with his wife and their two children. Monsters All the Way Down is his first published novel. His next book should be available in 2015.
