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 gripping detective story.” – Kirkus Reviews
My Take: I liked this book well enough. There was a bit of sex and language in this book. Toward the end of the book I found myself reading faster so I could find out who the killer was and boy was it a dousy of a surprise. I did have a bit of an idea of the whole supernatural angle from a few things that happened earlier in the story but I had no idea about the very end surprise on the very last couple of pages. I thought the story was told well but I did think some things were repeated a bit much leading up to the big reveal. That is just something I have a hard time in books when authors repeat things over and over. Readers don't have bad memories usually so repeat something maybe twice and be done with it. That is just a pet peeve of mine. Otherwise the book a good story.
