A DARK FORCE STALKS SHENANDOAH MOUNTAIN LAKE AND PEOPLE ARE DYING AND THERE'S NO END IN SIGHT.
A deadly menace stalks the placid shores of Shenandoah Mountain Lake. A serial killer is on the loose and the bodies are piling up. The residents of Shenandoah County are terrified, afraid to leave their homes and hoping for news of the killer?s capture before there?s another victim. With over five hundred miles of shoreline to cover, the sheriff?s office cannot protect the local citizens.
Leading citizen Salem Matthews is worried. As an important property owner and business manager he knows that he and his family could be a prime target. When a valued employee and friend becomes the next murder victim, Salem and his buddy Anderson, both ex-military special forces, realize the backwater sheriff hasn?t a clue. If the killer is to be stopped, Salem and Anderson have to do it.
The killer is smart. With no discernible con-nection among the victims and no physical evidence left at any of the crime scenes, Salem and Anderson don?t know where to begin.
There are plenty of suspects such as the mysterious pastor of Holy Covenant Spiritual Center; the strange psychiatrist who has turned the former Lakeside Academy elementary school into a mental health facility; the manager and employees of Pirates South, the enormous and strange theme park that has recently opened on the lake?s western shore.
As Salem and Anderson close in on the crazed predator, they know they?re in a race against time before they become targets themselves.
