"Gargoyles is a heart-stopping page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat. Alan Nayes combines his expertise and slick writing to brilliantly bring to life the all-too-real possibilities of genetic engineering in the wrong hands. Gargoyles is a frighteningly good read!"
April Christofferson, author of Buffalo Medicine
"A splendid debut. A timely tale, steadily accelerating suspense . . . and a warning."
Charles Wilson, USA Today best-selling author of Deep Sleep and Extinct on Gargoyles
"The idea behind this story is first rate. Dr. Nayes shows the dark side of genetic engineering run amok, in a nightmarish biotech scenario. . . . Gargoyles is an audacious beginning for a bold new writer of medical thrillers."
David M. Shobin, New York Times bestselling author of The Provider
"Slickly suspenseful . . . The mix of breezy science and lab-smock sadism makes for breathless page-turning."
Kirkus Reviews on Gargoyles
"From the moment doomed Irene Inez is dragged kicking and screaming from her car on a rainy Los Angeles night, this latest thriller from the author of Gargoyles (2001) will have you frantically guessing what horrors will await the next victim. When police bring a bloody and incoherent Inez to the California University Medical Center's ER, Dr. Julie Charmaine--a psychiatrist who specializes in battered women--is called in for a consultation. After her patient literally dies of fright the next morning, Dr. Charmaine teams up with LAPD detective Matt Guardian in a search for the vicious attacker. The bodies start piling up, and evidence points to someone or something lurking in the sewers beneath the city. The investigation leads them to the creepy Dr. Kovacs and his Phoenix Life Extension Foundation, which may hold the key to a horrific secret that has been kept hidden for 20 years. Should enthrall fans of the science-gone-awry genre made popular by Robin Cook and Michael Crichton, as well as readers of horror and monster lit."

“This is an exciting slasher medical thriller that is fun to read sort of like a Roger Corman movie. The story line combines the serial killer with a science fiction cautionary tale about the boundaries of medicine. Julie is a delightful, brilliant and energetic heroine while much of the rest of the cast either are victims or enable the audience to understand the protagonist better. Alan Nayes provides readers with an enjoyable tale that hooks the reader from the first page and keeps their interest until all the questions are answered.”
“…Barbary Point is one of the most beautifully written love stories I've read. It will make you laugh and cry. It's so well written that you will feel the pain that Kelly, and I'm sure her father too, felt throughout their lives. But you will also feel the joy and love that Kelly feels as she spends more and more time on Barbary Point. I loved this heartwarming story of love.”
Martha Cheves, author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
“Barbary Point is an amazingly written romance that catches your attention as soon as you start reading. As you dive deeper into the main character's, Kelly English's, life you can't help but keep reading. Alan Nayes is a very talented writer and I recommend this book to anyone.”
Sarah Smeltzer, All star softball pitcher
“This novella will stay with me for a long time. Stories like this only come around once in a great while. If you want to feel, Barbary Point by Alan Nayes is a must read. You won't be disappointed!”
Rebecca Rose, author of DIVINE REDEMPTION
“Barbary Point was a breath of fresh air. In this fast paced life I live in, I love to read to escape and Barbary Point was worth every minute I spent reading. I felt as though I could slow down and enjoy the story. I know nothing of fishing but left this story with a little bit of knowledge and a great appreciation for the life of a fisherman. I would have to say that this book evokes similar emotions to any of the Nicholas Sparks Books….”
