“The Legend of Devil’s Creek is a fast moving thriller. It starts nearly 100 years ago in a small ocean town in Washington when a boy is thrown off a bridge to his death by the school bullies. Shortly after that the 3 tormenters and the boy’s step-father are murdered in a similar gruesome way, and the killer leaves broken glasses on each victim. Who is the killer? The boy’s ghost or a vigilante?
Fast forward a few decades and the killings have started again. …” -Amazon Reviewer
Caution: Story contains strong profanity and graphic violence.
When a mutilated corpse is found bound to a tree deep in the forest of remote Aubrey Island, Washington, residents learn that the murder mirrors, in every ritualistic detail, a series of revenge killings described in a century-old local ghost story. More abductions and killings soon follow.
Justin Riddley, recently transferred to the island’s small college, faces growing evidence that one of his new friends and fellow students may be the murderer. John Marshall, redemption-seeking captain of the local police force, leads the frantic murder investigation and struggles to figure out whether the killings are tied to the island’s dark and violent past. Tormented by tragic wartime memories, and more convinced with each day that it is humanity’s fate to destroy itself, Marshall races against both the murderer and the specter of his own mental breakdown.
As blood continues to spill, Riddley and Marshall wonder whether there may be a dark, universal force that drives evil deeds great and small, and whether the nature of one’s childhood might sometimes, in the end, be all that separates the saint from the psychopath.
