Would you recognize the Devil if you met him?
A decaying prison hides a dark secret. Robert Deville, the youngest prison warden in the history of the state, never expected to feel a supernatural connection in a prison. After discovering a diary, Robert learns a prisoner, rumored to be the Devil, was hidden away under his feet.
Was this prisoner responsible for a fire that killed hundreds of prisoners? Did he play a part in the murder of a local family years earlier? Robert must learn the prisoner’s true identity and unravel why he hasn’t aged in decades.
Surviving a relationship with an abusive ex-husband, Jenny Deville is dealing with the pain of her past. Noticing a sudden change in her son’s behavior, and his horrifying drawings of murders, no child should ever witness, she must discover the cause.
As local children continue to disappear, there is little time to prove who the killer really is.

"A dark and spine-tingling debut by Jerry Roth that will not leave you disappointed. There are a lot of different story lines going on at once, which will make you wonder how they are all intertwined. Yet, it all makes sense the more you get into the book...I really enjoyed reading this book, and love the imagination of the author. Roth is extremely descriptive and he made me feel like I was part of the story." - Curiosity Bought the Book
"Bottom Feeders is a suspense thriller novel by Jerry Roth which just blew my mind. From the first chapter he had me hooked and reeled in because it was unexpected and eerie. The author's imagination in telling this story is realistic, yet on another level entirely. At one point I swear I felt that I was transported watching everything from past to present because everything was explained with such vividness yet gracefully... This is brilliant for Stephen King fans and if you also enjoyed reading the Silent Patient." - Meli's Book Reviews
"I have always loved the horror genre and Bottom Feeders has taken me back to the feels of what made me fall for genre in the beginning. For a debut novel, I am impressed! The writing style is captivating, and I love the vivid details and crafty metaphors used throughout the novel. I highly recommend this novel. I think Jerry Roth is an author to keep on your radar!" - Monica Reents
