Creed of Vengeance by Aubrey Dasher

Creed of Vengeance by Aubrey DasherIn the parishes of Louisiana, it is time for a reckoning. For more than two thousand years, children have been at the mercy of pedophile Catholic priests, but a reckoning is on its way in the form of outraged locals who will stop at nothing to avenge their own. Creed of Vengeance takes you on a heart-stopping journey through three generations of abuse victims as Cajun justice emerges out of bayou country, with inescapable and heartless cruelty brought down upon the guilty.

LeRóy Garceau, raped multiple times in childhood by his priest, and his similarly abused nephew, Remy, lead local vigilantes and outlaw motorcycle club members on a quest for punishment and retribution. With the help of a cadre of brilliant, ruthless Cajun women, LeRóy and Remy’s team pursue justice from the parishes and bayous of Louisiana to Angola State Prison, and even to the war-torn streets of Iraq.

But a final, unimaginable calling awaits: a confrontation on the astral plane, where a battle of spiritual forces will decide who is liberated and transformed and who is damned and enslaved for eternity.

Creed of Vengeance is a shocking and disturbing off-road journey into the moral swamp where pedophile Catholic priests and their protectors in the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy prey on their innocent child victims; until predators become prey.

Spring Girls by Karen Katchur

Spring Girls by Karen KatchurShe’s the only one who survived…and the only one who can help find the killer.

Another spring, another dead girl pulled from a lake in the Appalachian foothills: the latest victim in a series of murders with few leads. But Detective Geena Brassard and her partner, Parker Reed, finally land a break when they receive a tip about a previously unknown survivor of the so-called Spring Strangler.

The survivor’s reluctant to help with the case for reasons that aren’t all clear. Even so, Geena uncovers a connective thread between the victims, and recently discovered DNA brings her closer to the killer’s identity. But Geena knows the survivor has the most to offer the investigation—if also the most to lose.

Geena is torn between securing the surviving victim’s help and protecting her from further danger. One thing is certain: Geena and Parker must find answers before the killer claims another life—or returns to finish off the one who got away.

Thicker than Blood by Mike Omer

Thicker than Blood by Mike OmerFrom Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author Mike Omer comes the chilling conclusion to Zoe Bentley’s decades-long nightmare.

A murderer who drinks his victim’s blood? FBI profiler Zoe Bentley and Agent Tatum Gray thought they’d seen it all, but this young woman’s barbaric murder is especially hard to stomach.

They didn’t expect to work this case. But vampirism aside, the murderer’s MO is identical to that of Rod Glover—the serial killer who’s been pursuing Zoe since childhood. Forensics reveals the murder to be his work, but not his alone; desperate to fulfill his sick purpose, he has taken on an equally depraved partner.

Zoe’s own frustration grows after another woman turns up dead and drained—and another goes missing. Time is running out: Zoe knows her own death will be the climax of Glover’s sinister play, which has been unfolding for twenty years. To stop Glover and his vile partner, she’ll need to plunge deep into their motives; but this means drawing ever closer to becoming another casualty of a dark, dark thirst.
