12:19 - kindle ebook by Michael Infinito

12:19…The time has been set…

Violet and Johnny Dotson pull up stakes and relocate to the beautiful countryside near Asheville, North Carolina in an attempt at starting their lives over after series of miscarriages. Unbeknownst to them they have actually been summoned there by a higher power.

Locked away in a mountaintop mental institution, J.C., a mysterious man who was the only survivor found at the scene of a brutal murder/suicide, will only utter five words… "I am the son of God."

Strange events centered around the unknown patient spur Detective Tom Drayton to connect several bizarre deaths to the time of 12:19.

Armed with an old priest's advice and a touch of new found faith, Tom follows a path that could very well lead him to the destruction of all mankind. But is he doing God's bidding, or could he in fact be the dreaded serpent himself?

12:19…The clock is ticking….


Best horror/thriller since IT by Stephen King!
12:19 is absolutely the best horror/thriller I have read in 30+ years. From the first paragraph to the last, he had me glued to the couch and turning pages. Holy smokes! You really do not know what will happen next, and then when it does, you are gasping. Infinito has a way of pulling you into the story; making you feel the sweat trickling down between your shoulder blades. I highly recommend this!

Promises and Delivers Horror By JudyAnn Lorenz
12:19 was labeled 'horror' and it lives up to the promise. Infinito writes a different point of view for the battle between good and evil, not explaining too much, so the reader isn't really sure where the bad guys are hiding until Michael is ready. By that time, you're going to just be peaking for one more page to see where the story really goes.

12:19 is particularly scary on various levels. There was a time when I was ready to say "Too much." and quit reading, but that seemed like a cop-out for the characters who had to stay and either live with their fate or change it. I don't usually choose horror but am lightly acquainted with the author, so when he brought up the possibility of a review, I figured it would be good just to see if this guy had something going. It would all be measured on story flow and editing, not comparison with other horror writers.

The book intends, IMO, to test the reader's spiritual depth and maturity. Infinito makes no effort to make evil even moderately sympathetic; good has a real battle on the various levels of heaven to win out. So, where are you? 12:19 is not for the faint of heart. A scary, spiritual book that isn't written by or to be read by goody-two-shoes. The profanity and prurient parts would warm the cockles of a gangsta's heart. But the story is there and it flows through the crevasses of terror in proper order.

So, thank you, Michael, for asking me to review your book. If you hadn't brought it up, I wouldn't have come to the party.

Shocking twists and a rip-roaring suspenseful read By Lisa Regan

In his second novel, Michael Infinito does not disappoint. 12:19 is a page-turning, suspenseful read with a very intriguing premise. This was a book that I simply could not put down. Infinito keeps the pace pretty breakneck. This book is filled with shocking twists and turns that you'll never see coming. Several times I found myself gasping audibly and having to pick my jaw up off the floor! Just when you think you've got it all figured out, the book turns everything you know on its head. These are my favorite kinds of reads. You won't be able to sleep after you've read this--and I think that's a sign of a great writer. Atmospheric, creepy, and pulse-pounding! Don't miss this one!
