Darkness in the Valley

(A book in the Hondo and Magnolia series)
A Novella by

From the screenwriter of SAVAGE SALVATION, starring Robert De Niro and John Malkovich, comes an electrifying prequel to the mystery series that Kirkus Reviews calls "masterful" and that readers are calling "the next great mystery series."


When the bones of a family are discovered among the burned bodies of villagers in what Afghans call The Valley of Darkness, corporal Hondo Velazquez is the only one who recognizes a pattern that can stop a serial killer and expose the system that has allowed him to hunt.

On the run from insurgents as a thunderous storm settles-in to the Sangin River Valley,
Hondo and two fellow survivors seek refuge in a village the Taliban has already pillaged––having left behind dozens of burned bodies.

Trapped and forced to wait out the storm, Hondo finds a mourning father begging for help to find his missing family––
a wife and two young children. But as Hondo vows to help the man, he soon finds secrets buried among the burning remains that will tilt his whole world, exposing the true face of darkness within us all.

Darkness in the Valley is the fast-paced prequel to the daring debut mystery All the Bones in Brooks County, Texas.
