Editorial Reviews


"It is a cleverly written story with a riveting plot, a vivid pictorial setting, and solid, well-developed characters. Revolving around the two main characters' desperate effort to overcome the childhood scarring effects of their small-town environment, it is a haunting, true-to-life tale. Realistically portraying the difficulties in growing up in a provincial setting, the story creates a marvelous background for the conflict. Flowing smoothly, the storyline crescendos to a dramatic and smashing conclusion. It is a suspenseful and action-filled novel that promises to thrill crime and murder mystery enthusiasts who appreciate imperfect heroes. A spectacular story!" -Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite

"I'm prone to comparing most man-gone-rogue thrillers I read to the best in their kind: Lee Child, John Grisham, Frederick Forsyth et. al. (in my opinion of course) and I genuinely thought this could pose some serious competition. It has all the best elements: a breakneck pace, an unforgiving and sometimes cruel environment, some form of drug-based conspiracy, and a can't-help-but-love-him disillusioned man at the center. This is not to make it sound cliche- it's rare that all the elements work together in harmony to make a perfectly entertaining and delicious novel such as this one" - Literary Titan

"This is a stunner." -The Prairies Book Review

"Surprises add to a strong, scary story filled with questionable characters" -Kirkus Reviews

"A stunning piece of literature that enthralled, entertained, and enchanted me from the very first page!" -Red Headed Book Lover

From the Author

In the Country Dark is the story of a murder-for-hire gone wrong in the small town of Chancy, West Virginia. Cabel Walsh, a disenchanted journalist, becomes wrapped up in the plot's fallout thanks to childhood friend, Troy Mason. Mason, a recently fired CNA, is fed up with life and just wants to watch the world burn. As their options become limited, Cabel and Troy confront the demons of their past, and resort to drastic measures to overcome the darkness of the present.
