The cover was designed by D.C. Charles at BookGraphics and we think it’s stunning!
Here’s the back-of-book summary:
Fire destroys without conscience
Throughout the suburbs of Tulsa, people are disappearing at an alarming rate. The kidnappings spur the creation of a multi-jurisdictional task force. Who is this predator who hunts the quiet residential streets, snatching his victims without witnesses and seemingly at random?
Fire cremates victims to ashes and evidence to dust.
Detective Terry Walkingstick dreams of joining the task force, but he’s too green for the assignment.
Journalist Amanda Miller returns to her hometown for a funeral with no idea she is driving into a major family crisis, much less a murderous crime spree.
Pressure is mounting as Amanda and Terry team up, determined to solve the puzzle. When the two sleuths close in on the truth, their investigation shoots them to the top of a serial killer’s to-do list.
