The Final Days

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
It started with a child's letter. O God help me he's going to hurt me if you don't do what he says. Karen Wiley, recently qualified San Francisco psychologist, thought she understood moral dilemma. A tormented past, a sister lost in childhood to random atrocity, an ugly divorce and a precocious eleven-year-old daughter. He says he's going to hurt me. No one Karen knows has been kidnapped. If the police are powerless, is it her responsibility? But the letters keep coming. Then something far worse. In an old Mormon mining town, with a dark history, a man leaves his young daughters alone in a rotting trailer park. He returns to find one of them gone, the other barely breathing and seeping blood into thin carpet. He knows where you are now . I had to give it to him. Ella McCullers, first female Police Chief of Canaan, Utah, believed she knew crises of faith. Abruptly promoted to lead investigator in the state's most high-profile kidnapping case, her only leads are a decaying tombstone, a butchered cat, and the now mute sister who has ghastly, formless nightmares. Secretly, Ella suspects that God is abandoning them all.

In truth, it began in the Canyonlands with a violent cult, a depraved monstrousness unleashed upon the innocent and the misled. Daddy says go to the church of the final days. Now, the last survivor has a story to tell and Karen Wiley is coerced into the desert wilderness by a deadly game disguised as a righteous quest for the truth. Powerful, hypnotic and terrifying, "The Final Days" is the stunning debut by a chillingly brilliant new voice in thriller writing.
