Deliver Us from Evil

(The ninth book in the Joe Burgess series)
A novel by

Detective Joe Burgess Races Against Time in Deliver Us from Evil, a Detective Joe Burgess Murder Mystery Thriller from Kate Flora

—Portland, Maine—

Detective Joe Burgess’s nightly ritual, a habit he’s clung to for years—a visit to the park, where he contemplates life, past cases, and finds solace in the quiet of the night. But tonight is different; a force beyond his control compels him to stay. His truck, it seems, has a mind of its own, steering him to a place he’s meant to be.

Burgess may be annoyed by the intrusion into his quiet reflection, but he’s a seasoned detective, and he knows better than to ignore his instincts. Tonight, they’re telling him that something is amiss in the park. As he steps out into the cold, crisp night, he follows an eerie sound—a faint, haunting cry for help.

Burgess’s journey into the park leads him to a chilling discovery: a young woman, battered, naked, and in desperate need of assistance. He’s seen countless distressing scenes in his years on the force, but this one strikes a nerve. As he calls for backup and medical help, he knows that he’s standing at the precipice of a new and harrowing mystery.

“Kate Flora does what all the great writers do: she takes you inside unfamiliar territory and makes you feel right at home; you climb in and are along for the whole ride.” ~Michael Connelly

“Joe Burgess, the ‘meanest cop is Portland.’ He’s a wonderfully wrought character, capable of intense compassion as well as righteous rage."" ~D.C. Brod

Publisher’s Note: If you’re a fan of police procedural detective mysteries that are as intense as they are thought-provoking, “Deliver Us From Evil” by Kate Flora is a must-read. Prepare for a rollercoaster ride through the gritty streets of Portland Maine, where the line between good and evil blurs, and where one detective’s unwavering determination may be the only hope for deliverance.

Includes vulgar language and sexual content consistent with criminals and those who investigate their crimes.
