The Woodsman (Hardcover)
Jackson Clay used to be many things. An Army Ranger. A loving husband. A doting father. But that was a lifetime ago. Now, in the wake of unspeakable tragedy, he's simply the missing's last hope.
When quiet high schooler Sara Beth Parker disappears in the night from her home in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Detective Angela Cole is assigned the case. A black woman in a department full of white men, she's made a career for herself working harder and being better than the badges beside her. But when leads begin to dry up and her own peers start to question whether Parker was taken or simply ran away, Cole feels herself being pushed to the edge. And when an old colleague introduces her to Jackson, she'll break her own rules and place any hope of finding Sara Beth in his hands.
Determined to breathe life into a case that has quickly gone cold, Jackson begins to unravel a tangled web of secrets and lies that put him in the crosshairs of a sociopathic killer and his heavily-armed cult - a group that may be responsible for much, much more than just Sara Beth's disappearance. But enemies also have enemies, and when Jackson gains the help of a charismatic boor named Bear, together they'll take the fight to the cult, determined to bring Sara Beth home. THE WOODSMAN is "an unputdownable, suspenseful, and gripping book full of twists and turns." (Dawn Hosmer, author of Bits & Pieces)
