A heart-pounding supernatural epic spanning two decades in the lives of four friends, You Come When I Call You is a classic of supernatural thrills from New York Times bestselling and Bram Stoker Award-winning author Douglas Clegg. A high desert town has turned toxic after twenty years of nightmares. Now, a woman in Los Angeles believes her visions and memories are signs of insanity; a man named Peter Chandler follows a teenager into a house of darkness; in New York City, a cab driver begins to see a demon-haunted world all around him — while he’s driving.
And an old friend — from years ago when they were all teenagers in the town of Palmetto, California — is coming for them. He calls himself the Desolation Angel. He has returned to draw them all back to the dark place where they once committed a ritual of such intense savagery that it ripped their minds — and souls — apart.
At the center of it all, a mysterious girl named Wendy Swan, who has been missing for twenty years.
