Description

A New York Times Bestseller


The Gargoyle: the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into personal hell and his quest for salvation.

On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but his injuries confine him to a hospital burn unit. There the mysterious Marianne Engel, a sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Great book! Loved the history but especially enjoyed the medical treatments shared about a burn victim. I had no idea what a person goes through that has suffered burns. Descriptive, and well written! Best book I've read in awhile. Couldn't put it down.

    Davidson had me feeling i'd go mad right along side his characters. The stories within the story stay with you long after you've read it too....

    This is a great book with a cativating story. One of this books that once you start reading it you cannot stop because you have to see how it ends! It should not be on the horror category though…. It is definitely in my list of best books.
