It was a hot summer – uncharacteristically hot. And it seems that evil returned to Fjallbacka, Sweden after decades of calm in the remote fishing village. Tucked among the rocks of King’s Cleft, an innocent child finds what he thinks is the body of a woman – a lifeless woman. The investigation into the death of one woman quickly grows into multiple homicides and another missing person case.
The pain, torture and suffering the victims had endured sparks an urgent search for a recently missing girl. Has she been abducted by the same person who killed these other women? Can they find her in time to save her the same torment? Has the killer returned to Fjallbacka after twenty years or is there a new monster among the villagers?
Every chapter of The Preacher leaves you wanting more and just when you’re sure you know who the killer is (or killers), there’s another revelation that changes everything. It’s a story of love, hate, secrets and a little bit of insanity for good measure. Family and the ties that bind and make one look for sharp objects to cut the ties touch every character in this murder mystery.
