Wiehl’s latest is a truly creepy story with supernatural undertones that seems eerily real. Ex-football player turned PI Tommy and forensic psychiatrist Dani make a great team in the first in a new series set in East Salem, N.Y.
After a high school student is found dead in what appears to be a ritualistic killing, the authorities scramble to find answers. The girl was at a party, yet everyone else who attended appears to have been drugged and doesn’t remember anything. Forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris tries to get to the bottom of the mystery, but the more she uncovers, the stranger the circumstances seem. Is the culprit a member of their community — or is it even human? (THOMAS NELSON, Oct., 336 pp., $26.99)
