A bright crimson stain on snow and the smell of burnt flesh…
Dr. Michelle Fredericks is contacted by the FBI to assist in the investigation of a series of grisly occult murders in Eastern Kentucky. The case looks like a straightforward occult serial killer, but things are always more than they seem.
The sullen woods hold dark secrets.
As she begins to suspect there may be more than one killer, she’s drawn into a complex web of murder and deceit. The local police department, the almost feral people living in the mountains, and a vicious local cult all make her life difficult.
And looming over it all is the unseen hand of a certain secret government project and what was done to her as a child.
About Thomas Weaver
For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor).
I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far.
My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
