Art Somers is a detective in close-knit Murrell’s Inlet, S.C., a small-town, coastal community with deeply held spiritual and supernatural belief systems. A serial killer has shattered his peaceful existence by abducting multiple twelve-year-old boys within his county. Young thugs, backwater drug dealers and the occasional murderer are the most Art’s had to deal with, but now he must apprehend a predator who FBI profilers can’t find.
He discovers he has a tie by blood to the case and uncovers evidence that calls into question his long held spiritual and supernatural beliefs. Abraham, the father of faith, had to choose to either sacrifice his son or disobey a direct order from God. Art must now make a choice – sacrifice his soul to save his son.
“A riveting and intriguing read.” – Clarion Review
“Original and engaging.” – Publisher’s Weekly
“A gripping detective story.” – Kirkus Reviews
Excellent story which badly needed editing correctly. However, that said, if you can get over this it is a compulsive read.
Art has a difficult job trying to solve these murders. How many young boys will be victims before the killer is discovered?
What about the paranormal visions Art experiences? How will he cope? To make matters worse Art has a 12 year old son who could possibly be the next victim. Art’s girl friend Angela helps him but this is not easy as she believes in the supernatural while Art doesn’t.
This has a lot of potential to be a great story if more attention to detail and editing were applied. I would have liked to give five stars but unfortunately in all honesty, it has to be three.
