The Blood-Dimmed Tide : On trial for his life. On the trail of a serial killer.
While on trial for wrongful death, John Jordan must catch a cunning killer who is using the chaos of the decimated post-Hurricane Michael landscape to hide his heinous acts of cold-blooded murder.
John is not only fighting for his very soul but that of his beloved community—and he’s never seen a predator quite like this one. It takes a particularly cruel killer to prey on those who have just been devastated by the most powerful hurricane to ever hit North Florida. Can John be triumphant again or has he finally met his match?
“The thousands and thousands of acres of planted slash pine forests lie decimated.
Downed trees in every direction, most of them snapped in half. Their top halves lean down to the ground or onto other trees, the splintered place that still tenuously connects them to the base looks like exposed slivers of broken bone partially protruding from skin split open by the violence of the break.
What less than two weeks ago was a vibrant timber crop worth billions now resembles a giant, jagged thorn bush thicket in a lifeless wasteland.
Pottersville was on the outer northwest wall of the storm and received very little damage, and we’re now driving in the direction of ground zero of one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the continental United States.
The slow-moving traffic on the rural two-lane highway not only has far more volume than usual, but the vehicles that make up the increased inertia are the type that tend to decrease speed—trucks of every imaginable shape and size towing trailers of every imaginable shape and size, vans full of volunteers, semis loaded down with supplies, ambulances, cop cars, military Humvees, and TV news trucks.”
