Book Overview

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… Pray for mercy with the exhilarating thriller from the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author.

Danger lurking around every corner. Suspicion rampant. Is anyone safe? Is anyone innocent?

A twisted serial killer, dubbed the Fire and Brimstone killer, is loose in Dunmore, Alabama, on a merciless revenge mission to punish priests who do evil instead of good. What dark and depraved secret is the Church hiding to drive someone to perform such sacrilegious acts?

When a minister is doused in gasoline and brutally set alight on his own doorstep, the religious community are left in shock and Cathy Cantrell, widow to the killer’s first victim, is left seriously disturbed.

Returning to Dunmore 18 months later to rebuild a relationship with her son, the past comes back to haunt her when another minister suffers the same gruesome fate as her husband.

As the murders intensify, suspicions are rife and suspects are mounting. Is Cathy prime suspect or prime target to a killer who won’t stop until all sinners burn in hell…?
