Rich boy and poor girl, star-crossed lovers go missing while enjoying an afternoon on the creek.

Soon he and the Hawthorn County department receive an odd and frightening message from kidnappers.
The again, all ransom demands are implied murder threats.           


    Devil's Run

             Richard Carter #12

Sounds of war! Richard Carter awakes from a dream with his combat-trained nerves shouting "Danger!" But his combat was over a decade ago. The early morning sky seems afire, and explosions split the night, rattling much more than the windows of his Blue Creek cabin.

It's only a warehouse fire in the old section of town. At least that's all that it appeared to be until they began recovering the bodies. Three of four partners in a real estate firm are dead, and not by natural causes or by accident.

A lost child in the national forest, a rash of murders and arson fires, and things that are not as they appear near a small creek known as Devil's Run.

Before Richard, Guidry, and Kit can even determine the motive, a discovery forces them to admit that what's going on is too big for the Hawthorn County Sheriff's Department to handle.

Something evil is burning through Hawthorn County.

What do the victims have in common?

And how many will it claim?
