Burnt Offerings (2012)
Michael Lister
"If you like crime writing with depth, suspense, and sterling prose, you should be reading Michael Lister. BUNRT OFFERINGS is a compelling blend of fascinating forensics, sinister twists, full-blooded characters, and beautiful writing. Beneath it all is a core that offers far more than thrills--a meditation on faith, psychology, and the human struggle."

(Hatching, book 1)
Ezekiel Boone
"It's been too long since someone reminded us that spiders are not just to be feared, but also may well spell doom for mankind. Fortunately, Ezekiel Boone has upped the ante on arachnophobia. This is a fresh take on classic horror, thoroughly enjoyable and guaranteed to leave your skin crawling."
