SCREAMS IN THE WOODS by MIKE MARTIN
Today's new release from BeWrite Books is a chilling crime thriller ... the gripping tale of a lethal threat that comes to light by chance more than 100 years after the event that lies at its black heart.
Christine Lynch is handed a file by her private investigation agency boss. A routine dossier. A year earlier, two local men had suddenly and inexplicably disappeared. Police made no immediate progress and back-burnered the case as low profile.
But the wife of one of the missing men has given Christine’s boss the file with a scrawled comment: "Basis for a Stephen King novel!"
Christine looks again at the hand-written line, her imagination stirs ... and she soon finds that the claim was no joke.
The missing men had been researching a century old mining disaster when they vanished. Contemporary reports indicated a straightforward explanation. But later information reveals a cover-up and the terrible consequences of the pit owners’ efforts to find a dark secret buried deep underground.
Now, there’s a bitter war for its possession. One fanatical group is desperate to use it for its own purposes, the other passionately seeks to conceal it forever … and to save humanity.
Working on the questionable moral belief that ends justify means, each side is equally ruthless in its struggle.
Christine is lured into a web of intrigue, unable to tell friend from foe. Can she discover which side stands for good and which for evil? And if she can … can she find out in time?
