Kregel Publications Presents: Hands of Darkness (Book 2, Lure of the Serpent) By Heather James

 Hands of Darkness
By Heather James

Evelyn Barrett has a new job, a new baby, and a new life-of sorts. Nearly crushed by the horrific abduction and murder of her daughter (book 1, Unholy Hunger), Evelyn is moving on as best she can.

No longer allowed to practice law, she is recruited by one of the detectives from her daughter's case to become a police consultant. Her inaugural case becomes a baptism by fire as she joins the hunt for a chillingly methodical and sadistic serial rapist and murderer.

Her revulsion and anger fuels a passion for justice . . . and then it becomes personal. Her friend and law school roommate, Jen, becomes a victim. The rapist has made a catastrophic mistake with Jen: he has left her alive and able to talk.

Filled with the chilling tension of Unholy Hunger, Hands of Darkness explores the emotional and spiritual consequences for all involved when justice and compassion collide head-on with the darkest examples of human depravity.

My Review:

Once again Evelyn is encountering evil. If you read the first book in this series, you know the heartbreaking parts of her life. Now when life looks like it is smiling on her, evil reappears.
We being this book with a very pregnant Evy. Owen is on his way, a new start, and a glimpse at happiness again. We are considering a new job and leaving Fresno, heading to San Diego. Away from, the evil that consumed Evy and Eddie.
Of course, evil is everywhere, and no one can be free of it. It touches our lives, and will again touch Evy. Come along and be ready for some grip your seat in fear, but also some very touching moments. Ms James, has done it again, I could not leave this book alone. It is a page turner. I do recommend that your read the first book in the Lure of the Serpent Series, Unholy Hunger. It will leave you in tears. This book does stand alone, and enough information given, to let you know what is going on.

I received this book from Kregel Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
