Overview

Deputy Samantha Cody finally bagged her man. The jury's verdict: three counts of murder in the first with special circumstances and a recommendation of death by lethal injection. Only Judge Westbrooke's final decree stands between Richard Earl Garrett and death row. After three weeks of an exhausting trial and being haunted by images of the three sacrificially mutilated children, Sam's only wish is to wash her hands of Garrett, whose only defense is "the devil made me do it." Just as the chaos in Mercer's Corner settles down enough for Sam to focus on her dream of entering the world of women's professional boxing, the jury foreman and two members of the jury die under suspicious circumstances.

When more murders occur, each with Garrett's signature, a cadre of characters flocks to the tiny California high desert town, from pseudo-Satanic followers to a crazed reverend with his First Church of God disciples. Soon the town is whipped into a lynch-mob frenzy, and Sam's world of hard facts and pragmatism has quickly spun out of control.

Don't let the 700+ pages scare you. This is a quick read because it's hard to put down. Well-written and full of action. It's a great battle between good and evil that keeps the tension going right up to the last page. This is my second D.P. Lyle book and I just bought another. He is definitely becoming one of my favorites.

A thoroughly captivating book that was difficult to put down. D.P. Lyle's storyline was gripping and stunning visual images jumped off the pages. I hope he further develops the main character, Samantha Cody, in subsequent books!!

This thriller is one novel you hope never becomes a reality. Its just plain old ¿scary¿. D.P. Lyle must sit up all night and think about how he can keep us awake at night. Samantha Cody to the rescue.! Cool chick. We may have just found a new Steven King.
