Synopsis

Eyes scanning, searching, the predator sits motionless in a parking lot. His next victim is only feet away. Within hours a backwater south Georgia county will be rocked by two seemingly unrelated murders that signal the arrival of a serial killer in the rural southland. Hunting the killer and preventing the next brutal murder falls to a plainspoken country deputy and two agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). The chase leads north from the swamps along the Florida line to the foothills of the Appalachians. GBI agents Bob Shaklee and Sharon Price know that Deputy George Mackey is a natural hunter and if anyone can find the sadistic killer, Mackey can. But Mackey, haunted by his own demons can only wonder if he will be late again. It is his greatest fear.
 

About Glenn Trust

See more books from this Author
A native of the south, I was born in Columbus, Georgia in 1951, the first of five children. My father's work as a salesman filled my early years with moves from the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Georgia to Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Petersburg, Virginia and Baltimore, until finally returning to the Atlanta area in 1965. From then on, I remained a Georgian, going to school and growing up in the Atlanta area. Varied work and life experiences have given me an appreciation for the virtues and faults of people at all levels of society. For the record, I love people. I find them interesting, all of them. I may not like all of them, but like is different than love. I am fascinated by people. I have worked alongside laborers, scuffled with bad guys, and stood beside presidents at corporate events. I believe that this exposure to such disparate groups exerts a strong influence on my writing. Hard working construction laborers, truck drivers, and farmers fill the pages alongside rural deputies, big city cops, small town politicians and corporate bigwigs in leather chairs, filling boardrooms with their egos. People are truly interesting, at all levels of society. Respecting the strengths of people and understanding their human frailties, my desire above all else in writing is to bring life and reality to the characters in my stories. I hope to expose readers...you...in a real way to a side of life and our society with which you may not be familiar. I hope my characters possess an honest simplicity and grittiness. The white hats the heroes wear are spotted and grayed by their own demons and struggles. The bad guys are not always misunderstood Robin Hoods. Sometimes they are just truly bad with no possibility of social redemption. In the end, the stories are fiction, about fictional people. I can only hope to bring a believable reality to the characters that populate the pages. Like real people, the characters I try to paint are not completely good and rarely completely evil. Like most of us, they lie somewhere in between.
