The cover art isn't quite ready, but Arcane Wisdom has announced that Congregations of the Dead, my second novel written with James A. Moore, is available for pre-order. Just like Blind Shadows, this one will be a limited edition hardback first, then a trade paperback and E-book. From the back cover:
It’s one of the hottest summers on record and a storm is brewing over the small
town of Wellman, Georgia.
Still reeling from the horrific events of the
previous October, all Sheriff Carl Price wants is to get back to a normal life.
Unfortunately things aren’t working out. He’s got the Brennert County’s DA
breathing down his neck for answers about what happened in Crawford’s Hollow.
He’s been served with a lawsuit by the Blackbourne family. And just after he
witnesses a child abduction, the one person who always puts his life into a
tailspin shows up to add to the pressure.
Meanwhile, against his better
judgment, Wade Griffin agrees to look for a teenage girl who’s gone missing.
It’s not his kind of case, but he’s trying to establish his private
investigations business and perhaps abandon his past as a mercenary. But
Griffin’s luck isn’t any better than Price’s and he ends up crossing paths with
the man behind most of the organized crime north of Atlanta.
have their plates full, but then they learn that there is something abroad in
the night. Not the supernatural menace they dealt with before, but something
even darker. Just what is the secret of the charismatic Reverend Lazarus Cotton
and what is he hiding in his small mountain church?
Once again, Griffin
and Price must call upon all their deadly skills just to stay alive and even in
the middle of a pitched battle against things that shouldn’t exist they are
reminded that sometimes the darkest evils reside within the human heart.
Congregations of the Dead is the hard hitting follow up to Blind
Shadows, again mixing hard-boiled crime fiction with blood chilling horror.
