Hal Bannatyne is a successful actor in town to shoot a big-budget film. Spotting an old flame, Mattie, he immediately becomes involved with her family. When Mattie’s father-in-law tries to protect his land from the hands of a fervent land developer, Bannatyne soon finds he is mixed up in the conflict. Thus the intrigue begins, with a crooked land-development scheme, where someone is willing to stop at nothing to get what is wanted. Things take a turn for the worse with an attempted murder. Soon, the lives of all are in danger.

With a cast of characters that is truly genuine, Bannatyne unravels seemingly innocuous events that all become intertwined and more than anyone bargained for. A death isn’t what it seems, no one is who they say they are, and life does not seem real at times. Truly, this read is an Act of Evil.
