Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Woman's intuition takes on the power of Satan in this hokey but entertaining thriller set in Tennessee and Kentucky. Lena Padget's life changed drastically seven years ago, when her brother-in-law, fanatical Satanist Jeff Hayes, brutally murdered her pregnant sister and two-year-old nephew. Determined to protect other vulnerable women, Lena became a private eye, specializing in cases of abuse and endangerment. Jeff, now out on parole, harasses her with menacing phone calls and sinister trinkets left in her home. When his partner, Archie Valetta, is also released, Valetta's ex-wife Eloise fearfully enlists Lena's services; nonetheless, Archie manages to brutalize Eloise and kidnap her four-year-old son Charlie. Lena soon learns that the hardcore, Satanic cult to which Jeff and Archie both belong intends to use Charlie as a human sacrifice--unless she can find him first. Hightower ( Alien Blues ) brings off this improbable plot with more panache than one might expect. Her prose is clear and the pacing break-neck. The emphasis on maternal instinct and feminine intuition is unconvincing, as is the formulaic romantic element. Hightower also fails to bring Jeff to life and thus never makes Satan-worship or its evil practitioners a credible threat.

From Library Journal

Seven years ago, Lena Padget's brother-in-law, a member of a hard-core satanic cult, killed his pregnant wife and their two-year-old son. Now he is getting out on parole and is after Lena. At the same time, his partner is also getting out of prison and is threatening his ex-wife. Lena, a private investigator, and policeman friend Joel Mendez try to stop a tragedy in the making. Mixing the terror created by the cult members and the kidnapping of a four-year-old boy who is to be used as a sacrifice, Hightower, author of the futurist police procedural Alien Blues (Ace, 1992), has written a riveting novel of suspense. The Kentucky-Tennessee setting is refreshing, the descriptions of cult practices horrifying, and the events believable. Hightower is a writer of tremendous quality. Literary Guild alternate.
