I’ve returned to my rural West Virginia roots (born and raised) with Dead Hollow, a series of crime thrillers with a dash of the supernatural set in the fictional Appalachian town of Cold Springs. Dead Hollow is a true trilogy. In other words, there are no desperate cliff-hangers (I hate those!), but each book picks up where the previous book left off.
Let me reiterate, especially for Sydney Brennan fans, THESE DO HAVE A TOUCH OF WOO-WOO and THEY MUST BE READ IN ORDER.
Twenty years ago, children began disappearing from rural Beecham County: a boy on a camping trip, a girl walking home from school…And then it stopped.
Very slowly—month by month, year by year—children began to feel safe again, and parents began to sleep through the night.
Adam Rutledge, who’s spent his life adrift since losing his childhood friend to a man in the shadows, finds himself drawn back to Beecham County when another girl disappears. But to stop the unknown predator, Adam must reveal his deepest, darkest secret and embark on a path that may cost him his sanity… and his life.
The relieved residents of Cold Springs are returning to their normal lives after an arrest in the recent kidnapping. But their children remain in danger, vulnerable pawns for a man who’ll go to any length to make Adam Rutledge suffer.
Adam Rutledge wants nothing more than to forget his brush with death and the childhood trauma it has reawakened. Instead, he’s losing touch with the world around him and falling deeper into visions he can’t escape of horrors that aren’t his own.
When the unthinkable happens and another child is taken, suspicion falls upon Adam, whose role in rescuing the previous victim cannot be explained. Soon Adam is running from the authorities, searching for the missing child and for answers about what is overpowering his mind. But can he live with what he finds?
