Overview

A cunning psychopath has found a serial killer's paradise in an isolated patch of Oregon ... a religious commune, a cult. His youthful victims are never even missed ... until a lawyer comes looking for one of them.
And Rob Swift comes home.
Once this hamlet's brightest star, Swift is a cop now--disillusioned anxious, and insecure--on the brink of losing his job. A dismembered corpse is discovered. Not a trace of evidence. No apparent motive. Small town politics and vested interests conspire to keep murder under wraps--to shield the cult from outside exposure.
But the killings continue ...
and Swift is named a suspect.
Has he been set up? ... Again?

    Good Book. Pick it up!

    A well-written, solid, enjoyable mystery. It was refreshing to read a mystery set in rural Oregon rather than the "mean streets" of LA or NYC. Good job, Mr Wagner. I'm looking forward to your next book.

    Suspenseful Serial Killer Mystery

    The prologue lays out the basic crime scene. The story evolves from there. The short rapid fire chapters make for a quick reading of this mystery. The author develops a 'short list' of suspects as the novel progresses. The ultimate resolution is somewhat of a surprise. This is a 'quick read' and an enjoyable escape.
