The Devil of Light
by Gae-Lynn Woods

"This debut effort is further proof that there are undiscovered novelists out there who can more than keep up with the big names. I expect we'll be hearing more of Gae-Lynn Woods in the future." -- Russell Blake, acclaimed author of The Geronimo Breach, Fatal Exchange, and The Zero Sum trilogy.

A BIZARRE MURDER

Angie Scarborough killed her husband after she discovered his dirty secret – he liked sex with men and little girls. Still raw from her own unsolved rape six years ago, Detective Cass Elliot is stunned when confronted with graphic photographs of faceless men and children scattered across the Scarborough kitchen floor.

A COVERT WEB OF LIES AND EXPLOITATION

Cass and her partner Mitch Stone delve into a cunning world of blackmail and violence – and find a cult concealed for nearly a century beneath the genteel, small town façade of Arcadia in East Texas. Their hunt for child molesters triggers a brutal response from powerful men who will protect their identities at any cost. They unleash a ruthless killer whose actions create a media frenzy and destroy the fabric of trust within the police department.

A PERVASIVE EVIL

Cass and Mitch circle closer to the cult’s few members, following a slim lead into a night lit by fire. A night that begins with a blood ritual and ends with Cass holding a man's life - or death - in her hands and struggling to walk the fine line between vengeance and justice.
