Anthropologist Olivia West is determined to find her missing best friend. As children, she and Emma Martin wandered into Heaven's Bottom, an isolated Kentucky community cut off by the Ohio River and mountainous terrain. The two women share strange memories of the traumatic experience. Emma is convinced they witnessed a blood sacrifice and moon magic, surrounded by zombies. As a scientist, Olivia believes there's a logical explanation. Detective Steven Lewis pursues his own investigation of the mysterious town. A social worker, his wife fought her way into The Bottom to investigate suspected child abuse. She didn't make it out alive. Haunted by grief and regret, Steven is obsessed with finding her killer. He's convinced the murderer is hiding in the wild forest, camouflaged by the swirling mist. Olivia and Steven enter into an uneasy partnership to find Emma and solve his wife's brutal murder. They contact Sheriff Noah McCracken, who holds the local law enforcement role that's been passed down through his family for centuries. Like his ancestors, the sheriff ignores the chilling events in Heaven's Bottom. Can Olivia and Steven convince Noah to "release the McCracken" in time to save their lives? SPECIAL BONUS: As a reader appreciation gift, "The Hand of Karma" horror short story is included FREE at the end of the book.show more
