"Damnable is chocked full of deeply flawed, but intensely intriguing characters,
simultaneously unconventional, disturbing, and remarkable.  Its flare for the macabre makes the suspense tingle, and the story lingers long after the final page.  One awesome kick-off."
—Steve Berry, New York Times Best-Selling author of The Charlemagne Pursuit


"Damnable is an extraordinary debut with superb characters that live and breath with both frailty and charm, thrills and chills that keep you turning the pages, and a plot line that absords the reader through and through.  It's a wonderful book that's not to be missed."
—Heather Graham, New York Times Best-Selling author of The Death Dealer
"Flat-out fabulous!   Hank Schwaeble's distinct voice is like a seasoned pro's. Damnable kept me breathlessly glued to the pages from start to finish.  Fast paced, edgy, and gripping!"
New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair


"Hank Schwaeble is a new, talented voice on the scene.  He writes with a confidence that could be called swagger if he wasn't so good.  Damnable is a powerful tale that employs the best elements of many genres to create something fresh and irresistible."
—Tom Monteleone, four-time Bram Stoker-award winning author


"With his debut novel Damnable, Hank Schwaeble steps into territory usually dominated by Dean Koontz or the Preston & Child duo and solidly holds his ground.  This is one of the most suspenseful, inventive, and consistently surprising first novels I've read in years, and is certain to put Schwaeble on the map in a big way."
—Gary Braunbeck, Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild-award winner


 "Hank Schwaeble's Damnable is a first-rate fusion of horror, suspense, and noir.  There's plenty of creeping chills and chilling creeps here for every fan of the dark.  Schwaeble takes the horror-action novel to the max!"
—Tom Piccirilli, Bram Stoker-award winning author of The Midnight Road, The Dead

Letters, and Headstone City


"Fast paced and tension ratcheting, Hank Schwaeble's Damnable  is a page-turner sure to satisfy the most fickle supernatural-thriller junkie. This one definitely won't be collecting dust on your nightstand!"
