In an Evil Time

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
Jack Hollis had finally steeled himself for what had to be done: When a man is threatening your daughter and grandson, when reason can't stop it, when restraining orders don't work and the police can't help, then a father's choices are limited. David Rakubian was vicious, abusive, powerful, deadly - and Angela's husband. Everyone Hollis knew, the members of his family, his friends, all wanted to help save Angela. But this was something Jack had to do himself: Failure would be costly; success just as risky. Now he waited across the road from Rakubian's house, hoping he'd get home quickly, before he lost his nerve.

But Rakubian never got there, and the distraught father came up with another plan, something foolproof. Promising Rakubian a meeting with Angela so they could discuss their problems, he arranged for them to be somewhere isolated, somewhere a body could be easily disposed of, somewhere that would offer a perfect alibi.

But Rakubian never got there, either. And when Hollis finally tracks him down, he discovers that someone may have done his job for him. Now he doesn't know who to protect: There are too many people who'd wanted to help Angela, too many suspects (including himself); so many people and no one saying a word.
